Workout Recap - Week of August 5, 2018
As ever, having multiple days of travel back-to-back is a tiring experience. This time around, the timings of the travel were also a pain in the ass, so I got thrown off of my schedule and only did three workouts this week. Since I'm set up to be at my destination for a while now, though, I should have some opportunities to make good on breaking up the constant stream of workout recap posts. I just won't be doing that today.
Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)
Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 8, each side (pass)
Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups
This was my last workout before heading out, so I just took what I'd done on the previous Sunday and more or less doubled it. No particular rhyme or reason to that, but it happened to match up pretty well with what seemed to be my limits, so why not?
Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)
Underhand Horizontal Rows - 2 sets of 12 (pass)
Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 8, each side (pass)
After far too many days of not doing anything due to awkward travel times disrupting both when I'd have time to do a workout and when I'd have time to eat (along with the quality of the food, naturally), it was good to attack something like this. It's something that I could've exceeded if I'd been raring to push myself, but at the moment, I just wanted something respectable to start getting back in the swing of things.
Underhand Horizontal Rows - 5 sets of 10 (pass)
Unfortuantely, I'd underestimated how sore I'd be from doing those pistol squats, after too many days of taking it easy, so I thought it best to forgo doing a challenge workout on this day. I'll make up for it, I promise.
