Workout Recap - Week of April 15, 2018

April 22, 2018

Apparently, I didn't work out my technical issues with posting on this blog as well as I'd thought I had, but rather than boring anyone else with the details of that, let's just get into the recap.

Sunday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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

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

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

 

Bonus: 10 bridges

 

This was my last workout before flying out for this trip, so of course I had to get some bar time in it.  I'll put more effort into improvising some substitutes this time around, of course.

 

Tuesday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

5 sets of:

10 Push Ups

10 Bridges

15 Prisoner Squats

 

Time = 8:15

 

Bonus: 3 handstand push ups

 

Last time around, I got into a rut of pretty much doing nothing but pass/fail-type workouts, so I wanted to at least start out with a time race, and I intend to at least try to do at least two of those per week.  Hopefully, that'll help me continue to develop my sense of pacing.

 

Thursday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 12 (pass)

Horizontal Rows, underhanded - 3 sets of 12 (pass)

 

Bonus: none

 

Just to change things up a bit (and also because I was staring down doing four consecutive days of workouts), I tried going with three sets of two exercises rather than two sets of three exercises, and I rather liked how that felt, honestly.  It was still intense, of course, but I was able to recover from it smoothly enough overnight that I could see myself being able to work out more days per week if I decide to stick with this approach.

 

Friday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 12 (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 3 sets of 4, each side (pass)

 

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps

 

Nothing too much to say, beyond what I said for the previous workout.

 

Saturday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

50 Burpees

 

Time = 4:00

 

Bonus: 10 bridges

 

Yes, yes, I know, I should have done twice as many burpees.  I had so much else on my plate to handle for this weekend (due to some extra hassle because of flight cancelations, annoyingly enough), though, that it was fairly late by the time that I went for this workout, so I trimmed it down to make sure that I could still fit it in.  I feel like this was a pretty solid time for fifty, anyway, and that's plenty enough to test my endurance as well, so all in all, I'm happy with how it went.
