Workout Recap - Week of April 8, 2018

First and foremost, my apologies for the delay in posting this recap. I had plenty of issues, technical and otherwise, but I think it should all be sorted out for the moment.

That aside, I did get things back on track somewhat last week. I only did four workouts since I was a bit too sore to do a fifth, but I'm happy with what I managed. Of course, now that I'm back on the road again, there's likely to be some drop-off, but with what I learned from my last bit of traveling, I hope to mitigate that as much as I can.



Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 12, 1 set of 6 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 10, 1 set of 5, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 6, 1 set of 3, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps

I wasn't quite up to doing two full sets today, but doing just one set would've been too easy, so I decided to compromise and do one-and-a-half. That felt like a reasonable solution.


Type: As Many Reps As Possible

3 sets of 50 second intervals with 10 seconds of rest of:

Jump Squats (total = 68)

Push Ups (total = 78)

High Knees (total = 152)

Sit Ups (total = 48)

Bonus: 5 chin ups

A week delayed, but I finally got back to doing this style of workout. It felt good to do one again. I had a major drop in the number of reps as I went through each set, but the totals looked reasonable, so I can't hate on the results too much.


Type: As Many Reps As Possible

3 sets of 50 second intervals with 10 seconds of rest of:

Chin Ups (total = 39)

Bridges (total = 54)

Straight Leg Raises (total = 62)

Speed Rows (total = 272)

Bonus: 6 burpees

This was more or less in the same vein as the previous one, so I'll just take a moment to explain that "speed rows" is my term for doing bent over rows with no weights.


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Burpees

Time = 8:15

Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 burpee

Back on the weekend challenge train, and I managed to get within 20% of my personal best. Given that this is probably the hardest of my various weekend challenge setups, I'll take that as a pretty good sign. Obviously, it'll be a bit difficult to build on it given my upcoming trip, but steps in the right direction are always welcome.
