Workout Recap - Week of April 5, 2020

April 12, 2020

The best-laid plans....  A late shift in my schedule made me bump my monthly burpee challenge back to today (April 12).  I swapped in a pass/fail workout in its place for Saturday, but I must've pushed a bit too hard with the fingertip diamond push ups as I have some lingering soreness in my thumbs.  Realistically, I don't expect my ability to do burpees safely would be affected by that, but erring on the side of caution, I'll delay another day and see if my thumbs feel better tomorrow.

Sunday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

 

Time = 8:15

 

Bonus: 1 burpee, 1 bridge

 

This ended up dead on 10% slower than my personal best, which is the cusp of what I consider as reasonable variation.  I don't feel good about that, but I can at least take that performance as a small sign that I'm dealing with home confinement well enough on a physical level.

 

Tuesday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

3 sets of:

10 Pull Ups

20 Push Ups

10 Bridges

20 Prisoner Squats

 

Time = 8:15

 

Bonus: 15 breath isometric neck bridge

 

I'm surprised at how quickly this workout went by.  A nice way to bounce back from a bittersweet start to the week.

 

Wednesday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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

Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

L-Hang - 2 sets of 28 breath isometric hold (pass)

 

Bonus: 20 breath isometric free headstand

 

Holding steady with the main workout here while trying to advance my inverted balance training.  I definitely don't lack for strength to maintain handstands, but I still have trouble finding the balance point for more than a moment, so I'm hoping that doing more headstands can help with that.

 

Friday

 

Type: As Fast As Possible

 

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges

21/15/9 Hindu Push Ups

21/15/9 Bridges

 

Time = 7:30

 

Bonus: 20 breath isometric dead hang

 

Another pleasant surprise with how quickly this workout went.

 

Saturday

 

Type: Pass/Fail

 

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

Fingertip Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 9 (pass)

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

 

Bonus: none

 

I had to be a bit flexible with when I could do a workout today, so I figured substituting this in place of my regular monthly burpee challenge would deny me any opportunities to use that as an excuse for my performance.  The workout itself was pretty much standard for me now.
