Workout Recap - Week of July 8, 2018


This was another lighter week, as I ended up being fairly busy with making arrangements for my travel back home alongside a unexpectedly heavy professional workload.

Sunday

Type: Pass/Fail

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

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 3 sets of 5, each side (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups

I hadn't realized it at the time, but while reviewing my last couple of weeks of workouts, I saw that I'd been neglecting to do pistol squats. This workout was mostly about rectifying that, plus some handstand push ups thrown in for shits and giggles.

Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 5 sets of 5 (pass)

Bonus: none

Busy days lead to boring workouts, when I don't plan these things ahead of time. Today was such a day.

Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 13 (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

Somewhat more ambitious in scope, somewhat less ambitious in duration. While my workouts on the road are mostly about trying to limit how much I regress, though, I have to admit that I do feel like I've made some progress with my bridging. I'm still not at the point of being able to do stand-to-stand bridges without a little extra leverage, but I feel like I'm getting deeper into the bend lately, which seems like a step in the right direction.

Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

50 Burpees

Time = 4:45

Bonus: 10 bridges

Speaking of not regressing, this is the exact same time as I got with the same challenge workout two weeks ago. It might not seem like one at first glance, but I'm taking that as a win. Stagnation is not good, true, but it is evidence that the previous performance wasn't a fluke.
