Workout Recap - Week of January 13, 2019

Have you ever started in on something that looked for all the world like it should've been a simple errand, only to have complications balloon up at every step? That's been my world for the last few days, hence the delay in getting this posted. I'm not quite through with it yet, either, but I am at least almost back to where I'd started, and that's actually a weird sort of progress when it comes to just trying to fix a tumorous chain of happenstances.



Type: Pass/Fail

One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 7, each side (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass) Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups, 7 burpees

Hurray for squatting progress. Hurray for grip work. And I suppose there's nothing wrong with holding serve on those push ups, too. A solid workout, all in all.


Type: As Fast As Possible

8 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

Time = 8:30

Bonus: 5 close-grip pull ups

This one made me really happy. I went into it just thinking of doing five sets, but as I neared the end of that, I felt like I still had enough in the tank to keep pushing further. Evidently, I was correct about that, and I felt some pride about not just taking it easy on myself because I'd aimed low in my planning.


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 8 (pass)

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

Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 7 pull ups

I think I'm still not quite good enough at those handstand push ups to go to the next step, but I'm getting there. Bumping up the number of reps for the bridges at the same time is nice, too.


Type: As Fast As Possible

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges

21/15/9 Bridges

21/15/9 Sit Ups

Time = 6:15

Bonus: 11 pull ups

I hadn't done plyometric lunges in a while, nor bridges in a timed workout outside of weekend challenges. This sought to address both matters.


Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

6 Bridges

Time = 8:30

Bonus: 5 chin ups

Sadly, this was the second straight week of getting a worse time with my weekend challenge than I'd had previously. I'd felt like I was going slow with the burpees in particular while I was doing the workout. I'm not sure why, really, because I haven't had any injuries, discomfort, or other issues that would make them any harder for me than they were a month ago. Alas, but I'll just have to do better next time.
