Workout Recap - Week of September 9, 2018

September 17, 2018

By most measures, I should be ashamed of not pushing myself enough in this week.  Unfortunately, it seems like these long business trips always reach a point where I'm just looking forward to going back home and I just start losing heart for other things.  This week seems to have been that point.



6 km walk


Bonus: none


Take this workout, for example.  This isn't a real workout.  It's mostly just a stroll to check out a different grocery store.  I'm not fooling myself with this, and I have no intentions of trying to fool anyone else with it, either.




Type: Pass/Fail


Fingertip Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Bridges - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

Straight Leg Raises - 2 sets of 20 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


This was probably the most ambitious workout that I had this week, depending on how one chooses to compare it with the weekend challenge.  That bodes poorly for the days in between, but at least I did legitimately increase the number of fingertip push ups.




Type: Pass/Fail


Underhand Horizontal Rows - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 7 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


This one wasn't too much of a slacker workout, admittedly.  Weak by my usual standards, but there's some meat on its bones.




Type: Pass/Fail


Underhand Horizontal Rows - 1 set of 25 (pass)


Bonus: none


In this one's defense, I didn't do any warm up or anything for it.  I just got under a table and pumped it out cold.




Type: As Fast As Possible


100 Bridges


Time = 8:45


Bonus: none


After having been disappointed by how easy I'd had it when I did a simple 50 bridge workout earlier during this trip, I stepped it up for this one.  Having done so, I don't think it's worth repeating.
