Workout Recap - Week of November 4, 2018

A week has passed, and I still haven't posted that book review. I'll get to it, but it was So Okay It's Average, so I've just had more compelling things to do with my time.



Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 15 (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 1 set of 12 (pass)

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

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 half-Aztec push ups

Just like last week's opening, but better in every respect (aside from the bonus).


Type:As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

10 Pull Ups

10 Burpees

10 Bridges

Time = 8:30

Bonus: 10 breath one-armed isometric dead hang (each side)

I was at a loss for what to do on this day, and I didn't want to default back to my usual 5 pull up/10 push up/15 squat workout, so I put a slight twist on a weekend challenge and ran with it. The result was passable.


Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 5 (pass)

Hanging V-Raises - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 half-Aztec push ups

Once again, the same as last week, but better.


Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 9 (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 3 sets of 8 (pass)


This was a simple workout because there had been a medical emergency in my family on Wednesday night which was overshadowing most of what I was doing since then. It turned out alright, but reminders of the fragility of our existence are rarely welcome.


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

Time = 9:00

Bonus: 1 burpee, 1 bridge, 5 chin ups

I'm happy with how this went. It's about 65% of my theoretical optimal performance, which isn't great, but it's still in the range that I consider to be hard enough to spur growth while still being able to recover in time for the next workout.
