Workout Recap - Week of August 9, 2020

August 15, 2020

Sometimes, it feels like the universe exerts resistance in direct proportion to how much you want to do something.  Alas, but while I couldn't make time to finish that guide and cut my workout quantity a bit short this week, at least I've got plans to see a good friend tomorrow.  There are times where you have to be content to take the victories that can be found, while striving for more.



Type: Pass/Fail


Pull Ups - 2 sets of 7 (pass)

Push Ups - 2 sets of 13 (pass)

Close Squats - 2 sets of 15 (pass)


Bonus: 5 bridges


Steady progress, and I added a bonus back on top.




Type: Pass/Fail


Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 7 (pass)

Bridges - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Straight Leg Raises - 2 sets of 20 (pass)


Bonus: 5 chin ups


There is definitely an improvement in my handstand balance.  Again, I can't hold a free handstand for a particularly noteworthy amount of time, but even just feeling confident in that position for a second or two is a win.




Type: Pass/Fail


Pull Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Close Squats - 2 sets of 20 (pass)


Bonus: none


Working up the rep counts.  I'll transition back up to pistol squats soon, once I feel up to ramping up the difficulty elsewhere as well.




Type: Pass/Fail


Bridges - 3 sets of 12 (pass)

Close Squats - 3 sets of 15 (pass)


Bonus: none


Not related to this particular session, but I have to say that working on my posture in general has given me a new appreciation for bridges.  I've taken to starting out my mornings by easing up into a full bridge to counter whatever awkward position I slept in, and it feels great.
