Workout Recap - Week of September 9, 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.

Sunday

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.

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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.

Friday

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.

Saturday

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.
