Workout Recap - Week of June 17, 2018

Back up to five workouts for this week, and with a decent set of performances. Since I was talking about relying too much on handstand push ups in last week's recap, I made a point of avoiding them, which worked well enough. This was a good week.



Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 8, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 7, each side (pass)

Underhand Horizontal Rows - 1 set of 17 (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 10 bridges

This was a pretty standard workout, more or less. I can't complain.


Type: As Fast As Possible

4 sets of:

10 Burpees

15 Push Ups

20 High Knees

Time = 8:15

Bonus: 12 underhand horizontal rows

This workout went well, but my shoulders were pretty damn sore afterwards. I've done similar workouts plenty of times without feeling so rough afterwards, so I'll once again take it as a sign that my nutrition isn't up to what it could be.


Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 3 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 3 sets of 4 (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups, 20 straight leg raises

This was the day that I most felt my self-imposed restriction against handstand push ups. In retrospect, I should've done more with it, but what's done is done.


Type: As Fast As Possible

4 sets of:

10 Lunges

10 Side Lunges

10 Push Ups

20 Sit Ups

30 High Knees

Time = 10:45

Bonus: 11 understand horizontal rows

Ah, side lunges, my old nemesis. I actually felt quite fine after doing this. Come the next day, the soreness came, but it wasn't bad enough to hold me back.


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

Time = 8:45

Bonus: 1 burpee, 1 bridge, 7 underhand horizontal rows

I think this went pretty well. It's about 15% worse than my personal best for this challenge workout, but seems to be the best that I can do out under the present circumstances.
