Workout Recap - Week of January 19, 2020

January 25, 2020

Well, I ended up preoccupied for the last few days, so I'm calling it in at only three workouts for this week.  Having back-to-back abbreviated weeks isn't something that I'd wanted to do, but some things take higher priority.



Type: Pass/Fail


One-arm Pull Up Negatives - 1 set of 4, each side (pass)

Fingertip Push Ups - 1 set of 20 (pass)

Pistol Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups, 5 breath isometric one-arm dead hang (each side)


Somewhat lost in the midst of my personal turmoil, I hit my progression targets for both fingertip push ups and pistol squats with my hands behind me (albeit only for single sets rather than a double set).  That's a pretty solid sign of development, and I anticipate the next steps to come.




Type: Pass/Fail


3 sets of 50 second intervals with 10 seconds rest of:

Dead Hang (pass)

Isometric Close Squat (pass)

Forearm Plank (pass)

Isometric Bridge (pass)


Bonus: none


I didn't want to think too much during this workout, so I went for an isometric routine with an interval timer so that I could just find a meditative trance between buzzers.  I think it went well, for what it was, but this isn't something that I'd want to make a regular feature in the long run.




Type: Pass/Fail


Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

3-limb Bridges - 2 sets of 12 breath isometric hold, each combination (pass)

L-Hang - 2 sets of 25 breath isometric hold (pass)


Bonus: 6 bridge kips


On the topic of hitting progression targets, I managed that here for my handstand push ups.  I'll want to repeat that performance a few more times to really get comfortable with it before advancing, though.  If nothing else, my balance is still more reliant on having my heels against a wall than I'd like.
