Workout Recap - Week of August 9, 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.
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.
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.
Pull Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)
Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)
Close Squats - 2 sets of 20 (pass)
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.
Bridges - 3 sets of 12 (pass)
Close Squats - 3 sets of 15 (pass)
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.
