Workout Recap - Week of April 22, 2018

April 30, 2018

Delay in getting this recap posted notwithstanding, I was able to keep things on track for this week, so that was good.  Just more week to go, and I'll have stuck with my goals during this trip.



Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 9 (pass)

Stand-to-Stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 3 sets of 6 (pass)


Bonus: 15 underhanded horizontal rows


Nothing much to say.  I've just been trying to keep up with the approach to pass/fail workouts that I tried last week to give it an extended appraisal.




Type: Pass/Fail


One-armed Push Ups, feet apart - 3 sets of 5, each side (pass)

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


Bonus: 4 sets of 3 Superman push ups, 7 burpees


I could use the same description as for the previous workout.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

5 One-armed Push Ups, feet apart (each side)

5 Pistol Squats (each side)

10 Bridges


Time = 8:15


Bonus: none


I don't think I've done any timed workouts with one-armed push ups before.  I ought to do them more often, to blend strength and speed/endurance training together.




Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 9 (pass)

Overhand Horizontal Rows - 3 sets of 12 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


This was a shoulder killer.  I mean that in a good way, but also kind of in a bad way.




Type: As Fast As Possible


50 Overhand Horizontal Rows


Time = 4:30


Bonus: 3 pistol squats


Horizontal rows are an easy exercise to underestimate.  On the surface, they should require less effort than pull ups, but something about the different leverage adds a challenge in a different vein.  They're still easier than pull ups, of course, but it's not as much of a difference as, say, between push ups and handstand push ups.
