Workout Recap - Week of October 13, 2019

October 19, 2019

I was low on overall energy this week, for whatever reason.  Even moderate workouts left me feeling exhausted, and I spent more spare time just laying in my bed than I did actually doing things.  I'm not sure what happened, because I didn't do anything I haven't done before and I didn't have any notable changes with my diet, sleep, or overall routines.  I'm guessing it's just a quirk of biorhythms that'll clear itself up with time.



Type: Pass/Fail


Fingertip Push Ups - 1 set of 16 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 9, each side (pass)

Pistols Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 7, each side (pass)


Bonus: 5 breath isometric one-armed dead hang (each side)


Fairly ho-hum, on the whole.  If nothing else, it was a bit of a bounce back compared to how I opened things last week.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 4:00


Bonus: none


A simple quickie, which I finished with a fantastic time.  I feel like that's a bit of proof that there wasn't anything wrong with me physically, whatever the cause of my lethargy might be.




Type: Pass/Fail


Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 10 (pass)

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

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 8, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of three two-way suicide jumps


Given that I want to improve my pull up performance, I thought it'd be reasonable to substitute some in place of leg raises.  I'm still not as comfortable with uneven pull ups as I have been in the past, but I'm getting there.




Type: As Fast As Possible


4 sets of:

10 Chins Ups

10 Hindu Push Ups

30 High Knees


Time = 8:00


Bonus: none


Efficient and effective.




Type: As Fast As Possible


6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

6 Bridges


Time = 7:30


Bonus: 6 breath isometric one-armed dead hang (each side)


Not the greatest time I've ever put up for this challenge, but I tied my last performance in it.  I think the bridges were the weak link in the whole thing, so I know what to focus on to get better.
