Workout Recap - Week of March 10, 2019

March 17, 2019

After my brush of sickness last week, this week's main goal was to get back on track.  There wasn't anything spectacular about what I ended up doing, but they were five mostly-legitimate workouts, which lays a decent groundwork to build up from.



Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pulls Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 4:30

Bonus: none


Seeing as I had done this workout as things had started to trend poorly for me, it felt like an appropriate measuring point to gauge if I was recovering.  The finish time was in the same ballpark, which was a sign that I was past the worst of it.





Type: As Fast As Possible


50 Burpees


Time = 4:15


Bonus: 7 pull ups


Since I'd skipped doing 100 burpees on the weekend, this was an abridged version to make up for that.  This was a fantastic pace, though I'm well aware that I was approaching it as being no more than what it was, which is to say that I wasn't keeping more in reserve as if I was doing a full hundred.




Type: Pass/Fail


Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 6 (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 10 (pass)

Hanging V-raises - 1 set of 13 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


Honestly, I just tried to avoid overthinking this.  It was reasonable and effective.  Did it push me to a new level?  No.  Would that have been better?  Probably, but not if it'd come at the cost of what else I was busy with on this day.





Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

8 Pull Ups

8 Bridges

20 Mountain Climbers


Time = 6:00


Bonus: 7 fingertip push ups


It felt like I'd been going easy on both pull ups and bridges lately.  This was a prelude to the weekend to help address that.




Type: As Fast As Possible


6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

6 Bridges


Time = 8:00


Bonus: 7 chin ups


The finish time wasn't good by my standards.  That said, just doing it was a victory in itself.
