Workout Recap - Week of May 24, 2020

May 30, 2020

Well, things have sure gone crazy in certain parts of the world of late.  I'm still in a peaceful situation, fortunately, but my best wishes go out to anyone who's struggling.  If there's aught I can do to help, please don't hesitate to reach out.  I worry that things are going to get much worse.



Type: Pass/Fail


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

Fingertip Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 10, each side (pass)

One-arm Bridges - 2 sets of 2, each side (pass)

One-leg Bridges - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 6 Superman push ups


There's definite improvement with my one-arm pull ups.  I feel like I'm getting close to taking a big step forward with them, but in the mean time, I'll keep patient and stay the course.




Type: Pass/Fail


One-arm Bridges - 2 sets of 2, each side (pass)
One-leg Bridges - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Free Headstand - 2 sets of 30 breaths (pass)

Front Tuck Dead Hang - 2 sets of 10 breaths (pass)


Bonus: none


My mind was really unfocused and weighed down with current events, so I tried to find some peace with a meditative workout.  It's hard to say how well it worked, but sometimes it's enough to just feel good about getting through something.




Type: As Fast As Possible


6 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

5 Burpees

10 Side Lunges (each side)

5 Handstand Push Ups

20 Mountain Climbers (each side)


Time = 10:45


Bonus: 40 breath isometric forearm plank


I said last week that I should push myself harder with Friday's routine, so I slipped some burpees into it.  Mission accomplished.  This was a grind, but I feel good about increasing the completion time by only 2:30 despite adding thirty burpees.  That's not the best burpee rate I'm capable of, but I think it's acceptable when integrated into a fairly robust routine.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

10 Burpees

20 Push Ups

10 Side Lunges (each side)

10 Handstand Push Ups

30 High Knees (each side)


Time = 12:15


Bonus: 2 sets of 5 bridges


Well, this was rough on the arm extensors.  I had planned on doing sets of fifteen handstand push ups at first, but once I started to actually do them, I knew I'd have to cut back to be safe with the movement in later sets.  Possibly a future goal.




Type: As Fast As Possible


7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Bridges


Time = 5:45


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 bridge
