Workout Recap - Week of July 7, 2019

July 14, 2019

Finally, I am able to live again.  That said, I have no idea what happened with the challenge workout this week.  I suppose the inability to go all-out from the heat caught up with me, but if that's all it was, it should correct itself with time.



Type: Pass/Fail


Kneeling Fingertip Push Ups - 1 set of 21 (pass)

Bridge Kips - 1 set of 7 (pass)

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


Bonus: none


I was still without air conditioning on this day, hence the rather lackluster rep targets. 




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Burpees

5 Bridges


Time = 4:15


Bonus: 11 chin ups


A delayed make-up for skipping the last weekend challenge.  The lowered difficulty was a necessary evil.  Even though I had climate control again at last, the last of sufficient sleep (of any quality, really) in the previous few days still lingered.




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


Starting to ramp things back up to where I should be.  On an unrelated note, this routine is rather demanding on the wrists and forearms.  It's a good thing that those are among the best muscle groups at recovering from fatigue.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 4:45


Bonus: 7 burpees


This was meant to gauge where I was at, in comparison to the same workout from last week.  The result was a promising step in the right direction.




Type: As Fast As Possible


100 Burpees


Time = 12:30


Bonus: none


Well, this was a disappointing result.  This is the second month in a row where my 100 burpee time has gotten worse.  However, I have been experimenting with how to approach that workout in a more systematic way during my last few attempts, so this may be a consequence of that.  I feel like I had a pretty good start (I was up to sixty-six burpees at about 6:15), so with some better pacing and a stronger sense of urgency, I should be able to get things trending downward again.
