Workout Recap - Week of June 24, 2018

July 3, 2018

My apologies for the delay in posting this recap.  I went on quite the road trip during the weekend, and it's taken me some time to recover from it.  On a related note, I will have a reduced number of workouts for next week.  For this week, though, I held the line.



Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 10 (pass)

Underhand Horizontal Rows - 3 sets of 12 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


After a week of abstaining from handstand push ups, I just had to get my fix.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

5 Handstand Push Ups

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

7 Pistol Squats (each side)


Time = 10:00


Bonus: 10 underhand horizontal rows


Handstand push ups, together with a little unilateral gauntlet.  Quite brutal even with the low rep counts.




Type: Pass/Fail


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

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 8 (pass)

Underhand Horizontal Rows - 1 set of 16 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


A clean and simple little pass/fail workout for today.  It went pretty well.




Type: As Fast As Possible


4 sets of:

5 Handstand Push Ups

10 Bridges

20 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 7:30


Bonus: none


This one was a hard one to judge.  I started out fast enough that I was tempted to go for five sets, then I felt like I lost enough speed on the last couple that I stuck with my original target of four, but the final time suggests that I could've gone for a fifth.  I might revisit this, if I can remember it.




Type: As Fast As Possible


50 Burpees


Time = 4:45


Bonus: 5 underhand horizontal rows


I was quite pleased with how this went, especially for something that I just squeezed in while preparing for my road trip.  Not only was it a decent time in and of itself (it probably projects to around a 11:00 total time for 100 burpees, with some fatigue allowance), but I did it in three mini-sets, which is reminiscent of how I started out most of my better 100 burpee performances, too.
