Workout Recap - Week of December 16, 2018

December 23, 2018

My right shoulder was very sore this week, so I tried to take things relatively easy to give myself a chance to recover from that.  Thus, only four workouts for this week.

Monday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

6 Bridges

 

Time = 8:00

 

Bonus: none

 

At the time, I felt like this was a very slow time for this challenge, but looking over my records showed that it was actually a reasonable performance.  I think it just felt slow because the last set or two were a real slog to complete.

 

Wednesday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 3 sets of 5, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 3 sets of 4, each side (pass)

 

Bonus: none

 

This was about testing my shoulder while also getting a lot of lower body work in there.  In terms of actual performance, it spoke for itself, but there was enough discomfort that I wanted to still keep things conservative.

 

Friday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 10 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 3 sets of 7, each side (pass)

 

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 half-Aztec push ups, 30 breath headstand, 15 breath dead hang

 

More shoulder testing, trying to hit it from a few different directions.  Once again, it was a solid performance despite the discomfort.  That gave me some more confidence in it, though I figured there wasn't a good reason to push it too much harder.

 

 

Saturday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 8 (pass)

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

 

Bonus: none

 

In a vacuum, I could've done more.  However, I was crunched for time with other commitments, so I just opted for something quick and simple.
