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.

Sunday

 

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.

 

Tuesday

 

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.

 

Wednesday

 

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.

 

Friday

 

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.

 

Saturday

 

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.
