Workout Recap - Week of December 2, 2018

"Where does the time go?"-redux. It feels like it was just yesterday that I was posting the previous workout recap.

Anyway, between general soreness and a busy Sunday, I cut things down to just four workouts this week. I feel like I made the most of them, though, so I have no regrets.



Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

Time = 9:00

Bonus: 1 burpee, 1 bridge

On the one hand, it's never a great feeling to just tie what I got on the previous attempt at a given weekly challenge workout. On the other hand, it's my own fault for not featuring burpees more often in my workouts these days. I mean, yeah, they're hard and tiring, but that should be all the more reason to do them more often.


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 4 (pass)

Hanging V-Raises - 2 sets of 9 (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 half-Aztec push ups, 10 bridges

And so commences the build-up of those one-armed push ups. Doing them with my feet together is damned hard, so even just getting one more rep in per set is a significant advance.


Type: As Fast As Possible

11/8/5 Pull Ups

11/8/5 Handstand Push Ups

11/8/5 Pistol Squats (both sides)

Time = 12:15

Bonus: 10 chin ups

This is the most total pistol squats I've done in a single workout. I'm sure that hurt my completion time, but it's also worth a little recognition in its own right. Besides, they made the pull ups and handstand push ups feel like the easy part of the workout, which is no small feat.


Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 13 (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 half-Aztec push ups, 7 burpees

Commencing the build-up here as well, this time for the towel pull ups. I had a lot of trouble with my grip on the first set of them, but it was a smoother task on the second one. That's probably a sign that I need more of a grip warmup than what I've been doing.
