Workout Recap - Week of November 11, 2018


The middle of this week left me with some soreness in a few spots of my body. None of it was significant individually, but given the collective protest, I thought it'd be best to do only 4 workouts. The extra day off was quite fortuitous in its own right since it left me free to do a sudden favor for a friend, and I've been feeling back to 100% afterwards, so all in all, I'd say it was the right decision.

Sunday

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

Would you believe that I actually didn't realize this was an exact duplicate of my previous Sunday's workout until I was recording the results? It's true, and while there's nothing wrong with that in and of itself, it does highlight the importance of keeping such records instead of relying on memory.

Tuesday

Type:As Many Reps As Possible

3 sets of 30 second intervals with 10 seconds of rest of:

Chin Ups (total = 35)

Push Ups (total = 55)

Lunges (total = 26)

Burpees (total = 21)

Side Lunges (total = 39)

Mountain Climbers (total = 110)

Bonus: 20 breath isometric dead hang

In reviewing some of those recent records after the previous workout's revelation, it looked like I haven't been putting enough emphasis on my lower body. This was a step towards addressing that deficiency.

Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 6 (pass)

Hanging V-Raises - 1 set of 12 (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 15 prisoner squats

The workout speaks for itself. The bonus was a continuation of the previous day's intents.

Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 9, each side (pass)

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

Bonus: none

I had an atypically busy Saturday, so I shifted the usual weekend challenge over to Sunday in favor of something quicker. Looking back on that choice, I like how it worked out, and I'm thinking of continuing with that approach in the future. Doing the challenge as the last workout before a rest day gave it a better sense of closure, as odd as that may sound.
