Workout Recap - Week of December 16, 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.
