Workout Recap - Week of October 14, 2018

October 21, 2018

This week was about a return to normalcy.  That is to say I wanted a mixture of timed and pass/fail workouts, plus a weekend challenge.  In that respect, it was a success.  The actual results were subpar, but I'm sure that'll correct itself in due time.



Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)


Bonus: 5 breath isometric one-armed dead hang (each side)


This was a good start.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 5:15


Bonus: 10 bridges


On the surface, this was a slight dip from what I did last week.  That said, my actual performance felt better.  My energy level was far steadier, my breathing wasn't as labored by the end, and I just had a better sense of control over myself throughout.




Type: Pass/Fail


Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)


Bonus: 4 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps


My arms (especially the left one) were pretty sore after the last two workouts, so I toned things down for today and just focused on my legs.  It was simple but good, especially with the return of suicide jumps.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Chin Ups

10 Bridges

20 Mountain Climbers


Time = 6:15


Bonus: 7 pull ups


I realized that I hadn't been bridging regularly of late, so I tried to start rectifying that with this workout.  Beyond that, it was a simple yet effective timed workout.  As with the previous one, the end result was slower than I would've liked, but the process was what I wanted.




Type: As Fast As Possible


6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

6 Bridges


Time =8:45


Bonus: 5 handstand push ups


Honestly, something felt off with me right from my warmup with this one.  Getting within 75% of my personal best despite that is a win in its own right.
