Workout Recap - Week of December 30, 2018

January 6, 2019

Of course, due to the timing of these recap posts, the first one for this year is covering the end of last year.  While I don't do a lot in the way of year end festivities, I did enough to throw off my schedule, so I dialed things back to four workouts.  I tried to make them fierce to make up for it.



Type: Pass/Fail


One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 8, each side (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)
Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 7, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 10 fingertip push ups


I was on a time crunch to squeeze this in, so I went with a single heavy set.  There really isn't a whole lot to say about it otherwise.




Type: As Many Sets As Possible


12 minutes of:


20 Jump Squats

15 Push Ups

10 Bridges


Total = 4 sets + 18 jump squats


Bonus: 2 jump squats


Well, seeing as I seem to keep saying that I need to improve my endurance in these recap posts, I figured that it'd be a good idea to do workout that focused more on that.  High volumes of jump squats are an interesting thing, because I find it easier to get into a groove with them than with either normal squats or burpees, but they're also harder to get back into on a second or subsequent set.




Type: Pass/Fail


Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

Hanging V-raises - 2 sets of 10 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 3 half-Aztec push ups, 2 sets of 3 Superman push ups


Well, well, would you look at that?  I do believe I've hit my target for handstand push ups with a shoulder-width spacing.  I'll want to repeat that until I'm feeling fully adapted to that load, but I can taste advancing to close-grip handstand push ups in the near future.




Type: As Fast As Possible


7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Bridges


Time = 6:45


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 bridge


I was happy with my improvement on my challenge workout last week, so I'm absolutely elated with what I managed this time around.  Getting my average time per set under one minute is phenomenal!
