Workout Recap - Week of October 27, 2019

November 3, 2019

Seeing as I was going to have some disruption to my routine in the coming week, I decided to use this past week as a chance to experiment with a few different things.  None of it was anything revolutionary in and of itself, but it was a nice change of pace.  I'll keep that up for what I can during this week as well, and then I can think about how to progress once I'm back from my trip.



Type: Pass/Fail


Fingertip Push Ups - 1 set of 15 (pass)

One-armed Dead Hangs - 1 set of 12 breaths isometric hold, each side (pass)

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


Bonus: 2 feet together one-armed push ups (each side)


Seeing as I was talking about wanting to improve my grip endurance, I figured it'd make sense to do something focused precisely on that.  It also highlighted that my left hand is noticeably weaker than my right, so that might be something to do some unrecorded extra work on when I get some chances.




Type: As Fast As Possible


7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Bridges


Time = 6:15


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 bridge


This was making up for scaling back on my challenge during last weekend.  A solid performance, especially considering it came after a day at work.




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)

L-hang - 1 set of 20 breaths isometric hold (pass)

Towel Pull Ups - 1 set of 10 (pass)


Bonus: none


Here was a bit of variation from the usual business.  I think there's some interesting potential to build on this format, so I'll be giving it some thought in the future.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Towel Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Close Squats


Time = 6:45


Bonus: none


This felt like a pretty bad time for this routine.  For whatever reason, I was having a lot of trouble getting comfortable with the towel pull ups, even though this isn't the first time that I'm doing them in a timed workout.  I'm not sure what went wrong with them, though that does tempt me to make up for it at some point.




Type: Pass/Fail


One-armed Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 10, each side (pass)

One-armed Dead Hangs - 2 sets of 10 breath isometric holds, each side (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 2 sets of 10, each side (pass)


Bonus: 8 bridge kips, 8 burpees


I had been planning on doing 100 burpees instead, but I just didn't feel up to it when the day came, so this was a chance to still do something productive in the time I had allotted.
