Workout Recap - Week of April 21, 2019

I have no idea where this week went. It felt like it just passed in a flash, and my mind has just been all over the place. It probably didn't help matters that I had the cross-referencing in my native file for my TTRPG blow up last night, so I spent most of this morning combing through it to fix the links one by one.

On a better note, though, I've really been enjoying the Conan stories. It feels like it's been a long time since I read something for pleasure that I actually liked, so this has been a delightful development.



Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Bridges

Time = 6:30

Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 burpee

I'm pretty happy with how this went. Yes, it's a little slower than my last go at it was, but my last go at it didn't come on the tail end of 3 other consecutive days of workouts. Fatigue is not an excuse, but it is an understandable circumstance.


Type: As Fast As Possible

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges

21/15/9 Diamond Push Ups

21/15/9 Sit Ups

Time = 4:45

Bonus: 2 sets of 5 mixed-grip pull ups

Given my comments for the previous workout, it might seem odd that I did another on the next day. I had plans that I expected to take up all of my free time on Tuesday (which they did, and I have no regrets about that), so I fit in a quickie to avoid having a lighter week than necessary.


Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Skin-the-cats - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps

I bumped up my rep count for the skin-the-cats, officially making up for my failure a few weeks ago. That felt good.


Type: As Many Reps As Possible

12 minutes of 50 second intervals with 10 seconds rest of:

Chin Ups (total = 52)

Side Lunges (total = 69, each side)

Divebomb Push Ups (total = 36)

Mountain Climbers (total = 177)

Bonus: 6 burpees

This was a good workout. The mountain climber total was a little lower than the last time I did it in 50 second intervals, but I'm quite content to take that in return for some serious totals in the other three movements.


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

Time = 8:00

Bonus: 1 burpee, 1 bridge

Holding steady on my time for this challenge was a solid way to cap off the week. This also gets me back on track with my weekend challenges, which has been hanging over my head for a little while. All in all, good stuff.
