Workout Recap - Week of July 1, 2018

July 10, 2018


As mentioned previously, I had a lighter workload this week on the exercise front because I took a road trip on the weekend.  Though not without its harrowing moments, it was a fun experience overall.  To make up for it, I did a hell of a lot of handstand push ups, which are a different kind of fun.

Tuesday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

5 sets of:

15 Prisoner Squats

10 Push Ups

10 Bridges

 

Time = 8:00

 

Bonus: none

 

I've been trying a few different variations on this basic recipe throughout this trip.  They've all got their own flavors and benefits, but really, I'd rather just be able to do pull ups again.

 

Wednesday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

3 sets of:

10 Handstand Push Ups

10 Burpees

10 Bridges

 

Time = 9:00

 

Bonus: 10 underhand horizontal rows

 

This was a variant of the weekend challenge that I usually like to do on the week following a 100 burpee challenge (6 sets of 6 pull ups/6 burpees/6 bridges).  According to the completion time, I found it harder. According to my personal experience, I found it less fun. 

 

Friday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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

Underhand Horizontal Rows - 3 sets of 12 (pass)

 

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

 

A simple yet effective shoulder grinder.

 

Saturday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

50 Handstand Push Ups

 

Time = 5:15

 

Bonus: 5 underhand horizontal rows

 

I'll admit this workout kicked my ass more than I'd expected it to.  Handstand push ups are not an exercise that lends itself well to high volume work.  Part of me wants to fit this in as part of my regular rotation of weekend challenges for exactly that reason.  I've always said that people who enjoy exercising have to be at least a little masochistic.
