Workout Recap - Week of October 14, 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.

Monday

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.

Tuesday

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.

Wednesday

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.

Friday

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.

Saturday

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.
