Workout Recap - Week of March 15, 2020

March 21, 2020

This was a depressing week, and it was a week where I dealt with some depression, and between the two, only four workouts were had.



Type: Pass/Fail


One-arm Pull Up Negatives - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Fingertip Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 7 (pass)

3-Limb Bridges - 2 sets of 2, each combination (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups, 20 breath isometric bridge hold


Holding steady with what I did last week.  Incidentally, I don't think I mentioned it at the time when I started using three-limb bridges in place of pistol squats, but in as much as my arms are my limiting factor with those, they also feel about as hard on my groin and hamstrings as the pistol squats were, hence the substitution.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

11/8/5 Pull Ups

21/15/9 Prisoner Squats

11/8/5 Handstand Push Ups

21/15/9 Sit Ups


Time = 6:15


Bonus: 9 burpees


Not too much to say here.  I just got in and got it done, more or less.




Type: Pass/Fail


Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)

3-limb Bridges - 2 sets of 2, each combination (pass)

L-Hang - 2 sets of 27 breath isometric hold (pass)


Bonus: none


I took a step back on how well I did the bridges here, compared to Sunday.  I think that's mostly a function of uneven handstand push ups being rougher on my arm extensors than fingertip diamond push ups, but it's still worth noting.




Type: As Fast As Possible


7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Burpees


Time = 8:00


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 burpee


Amazing that this is my first time doing this challenge since January, and I even had the same time, then.  It's not a good time by my standards.  I can understand part of why it happened (I had only three or four hours of sleep last night), but failure to prepare properly is still no excuse for failure to perform.
