Workout Recap - Week of May 5, 2019

May 12, 2019

If last week was one of great highs, this week was one of feeling one step behind the whole time.  Something seemed to catch me on the back foot each day, so the end result is that I did five workouts yet didn't really feel like I did a single complete workout.  Alas, but as ever, the only path is to forge onward.



Type: Pass/Fail


One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 12, each side (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 8, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 5 pull ups


Abbreviated workouts are the theme of the week.  Within that constraint, though, I'm pretty happy with how this went.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 4:30


Bonus: none


A repeat from last Friday, which held steady.  Fair enough, I suppose.




Type: Pass/Fail


Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 8 (pass)

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

Skin-the-cats - 1 set of 7 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 half-Aztec push ups


Basically the same comment as the previous day.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

10 Pull Ups

10 Handstand Push Ups


Time = 4:15


Bonus: 3 wall walks


In a week of mostly lackluster workouts, this was a little high spot.  That's a solid chunk of work for my forearms and upper back.




Type: As Fast As Possible


50 Burpees


Time = 4:15


Bonus: none


By all rights, I should've had time to do my usual 100 burpees today, but extenuating circumstances held my day hostage, so I settled for this.  I've got my mind set to make up for it next week.
