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.
Type: As Fast As Possible
6 sets of:
6 Pull Ups
Time = 8:00
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.
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)
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.
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.
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)
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.
