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.
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
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.
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
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!
