Workout Recap - Week of July 22, 2018

July 31, 2018


So, I'm late with this.  I really can't say why it happened, but the last couple of days just seemed to pass by in a flash.  Fortunately, there's not really anything remarkable to see in here, so nothing was lost by the delay.

Sunday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

 

Time = 4:45

 

Bonus: 5 chin ups

 

This was a run of my old standard, to hep with judging how far I've fallen.  It was a decent result, all things considered, but I could tell that I was seriously out of practice with pull ups.  That'd be a recurring theme for the week.

 

Monday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Chin Ups - 5 sets of 5 (pass)

 

Bonus: none

 

I was running around on a few errands today, so I dropped this in as a quick fix of doing something.  Not the most demanding workout by any means, but it's better than not having done anything.

 

Wednesday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Burpees

 

Time = 10:15

 

Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 burpee

 

This was to make up for skipping my weekend challenge on the previous week.  It was a shit time.  I knew I was setting myself up to have a poor performance since I wasn't doing more than 25 pull ups in any of the workouts since I'd returned home, so jumping up to 49 was going to be a challenge.  It sucked, but I'm trying to just think of it as a baseline to improve from.

 

Friday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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

Hanging V-Raises - 3 sets of 8 (pass)

 

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups

 

I can try to sugarcoat this in different ways, but the bottom line is that this was mostly about regaining some confidence in myself.

 

Saturday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Burpees

 

Time = 9:45

 

Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 burpee

 

I went straight into another go at this.  It was still a bad time overall compared to what I've achieved before, but a 5% improvement in just a handful of days is nothing to scoff at.  That's something that I can work with.  Or, rather, it would be, if I wasn't soon to be on the road again.
