Workout Recap - Week of September 29, 2019

October 6, 2019

I was feeling a bit sore during the week, so I cut things down to four workouts.  My initial intention had been to go every other day (i.e. Sunday/Tuesday/Thursday/Saturday), but that was before going out for a special lunch on Thursday.  The lunch itself was fine, such as it was, but there must've been something unexpected in it, because I could feel a negative reaction in progress in the time between finishing eating the main meal and talking about getting dessert.  That's always a risk when eating out, of course, since restaurants aren't going to an exhaustive list of ingredients on their menu.


Aside from that, though, it was a pretty solid week.  Nothing spectacular, but solid and steady results across the board.



Type: Pass/Fail


Fingertip Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Interval Pull Ups - 2 sets of 4 (pass)

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


Bonus: none


If I have to nitpick something here, it's that I might be favoring doing bilateral pull ups more than I should when my long-term goal is do to one-armed pull ups.  I should rotate in some more unilateral work.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges

21/15/9 Diamond Push Ups

21/15/9 Sit Ups


Time = 4:30


Bonus: none


I had intended to do something more ambitious here, but traffic was atypically heavy during my drive home from work.  Given the delay from that, I opted to do something quick and simple instead.




Type: As Fast As Possible


8 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 7:30


Bonus: 7 burpees


I pushed up the number of sets this week, now that I was getting so comfortable at five.  That made fatigue more of a factor, but I think this was still a solid completion time.




Type: As Fast As Possible


50 Burpees


Time = 4:15


Bonus: 10 bridges


Holding steady with what I did last week, and considering that was a solid step forward from what I had done before, that's a fine result.  Not great, but no bad, either.
