Workout Recap - Week of December 9, 2018

December 17, 2018

This was mostly a good week for me.  There isn't really any specific thing I can point to as the reason why that's the case, but it just felt good overall.



Type: As Fast As Possible


100 Burpees


Time = 12:00


Bonus: none


It'd been a while since I did this, so I'll admit that the prospect was a bit intimidating on approach.  Once I got over that and just went ahead with it, though, I feel like it went quite well.  The total time was certainly respectable, and I was almost able to do three minisets of twenty to start it out (ended up having to take my third breath break at 56).




Type: As Fast As Possible


11/8/5 Pull Ups

11/8/5 Handstand Push Ups

11/8/5 Burpees


Time = 6:00


Bonus: 20 breath dead hang


This was inspired by last week's Thursday workout, although the change from pistol squats to burpees obviously made it much easier.  That made this too easy, truth be told, but I like the general setup enough that I think I'll keep tinkering with finding the right challenge point for it.




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, 20 breath dead hang


Same numbers as last time for this.  I was feeling uninspired on this day.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 5:00


Bonus: 20 breath dead hang


This was a disappointing result.  I'd really felt like I was going faster while I was doing it, but that was just an illusion.  The bonus was also incredibly lacking in creativity.




Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 14 (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps


In complement to last week's progress with this, I pushed a bit further with the handstand push ups and pistol squats this time.  I'm going to hold steady for a bit on the former, though, since it felt like I need to time to adjust to being inverted for that long.
