Workout Recap - Week of August 19, 2018


I think I missed mentioning this before, but wow, this site's been up for more than a year now! It's incredible how quickly the time's gone by. My sincere thanks to anyone who's been sticking it out with me, especially given that my content of late has been rather one-dimensional. I really do have the intention of doing more stuff on here. I just keep getting pulled in other direction, caught up with other vices, and before I know it, I'm once again behind on doing another workout recap without having posted anything else in the interim.

So, in as much as I am committed to doing some more #randombullshit in the near future, for now, a mere workout recap will have to suffice.

Sunday

Type: Pass/Fail

Underhand Horizontal Rows - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

Push Ups - 2 sets of 20 (pass)

Prisoner Squats - 2 sets of 30 (pass)

Bonus: none

Starting the week off with a whimper, this was a somewhat endurance-focused variant of a usual pass/fail workout. It's not really worthy of any greater comments than that.

Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

8 sets of:

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

Time = 6:45

Bonus: 10 underhand horizontal rows

Well, if I don't have a bar for my tried and true 5 pull ups/10 push ups/15 prisoner squats routine, this is probably the next best thing, right? More sets would've probably been reasonable and shall be added in the future (I'm sure this routine will come up again before my current trip is done).

Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 8, each side (pass)

Underhand Horizontal Rows - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups

Come to think of it, it's been a long time since I've failed a segment on one of these workouts. I'm sure that I've done that before in the history of these workout recaps, but damn, that's a bad sign that I should be pushing myself harder.

Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Burpees

10 Push Ups

15 Straight Leg Raises

Time = 7:30

Bonus: 10 bridges

I can't put my finger on the "why" of it exactly, but I rather liked this workout and will seek to expand on it in the future, too.

Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

50 Burpees

Time = 5:15

Bonus: none

At a high level, this is the same as I did in last week's Sunday workout and thus something of a slight disappointment, since plateauing isn't good. On a more micro level, there were circumstances on this day that probably interfered with doing the best that I could've. However, excuses only go so far, so I am making it a point in my mind to try beating this on my next go at it.
