Workout Recap - Week of August 16, 2020

August 25, 2020

My sincere apologies for the delay in posting this.  I've had some tumultuous events in my personal life lately, to put it mildly, a consequence of which was that I didn't do any workouts in the back half of the week.  On top of that, there was a power outage yesterday when I had planned to write this up.  Anyway, here's the recap, and I'll just move forward from here.



Type: Pass/Fail


Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Hanging Knee Raises - 2 sets of 10 (pass)


Bonus: 5 chest stop push ups


Alright, now I'm getting back up to some solid numbers.  It shouldn't be too much longer before I'm feeling up to attacking some of those advanced movements again and hopefully benefiting more from them now that I'm moving more cleanly.




Type: Pass/Fail


Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Push Ups - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

Bridges - 2 sets of 15 (pass)


Bonus: none


Ah, it is satisfying to get back to doing pistol squats.  I'll be patient with increasing the rep targets for them because I want to make sure that I'm not compromising form on my weaker side, but something about doing them just makes me feel strong.  Maybe not quite strong enough to tack a bonus after the rest of this workout, but still strong.




Type: Pass/Fail


Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Hanging Knee Raises - 2 sets of 12 (pass)


Bonus: 3 burpees


And we have the return of burpees!  I have to admit, I couldn't do them at full speed because I was landing with too much anterior pelvic tilt on the kick-back, but they've been such an iconic part of fitness routines that it definitely felt like something was missing when I hadn't done them in so long.  I'll have to practice with the motion and train my waist to hold its alignment before I go back to doing weekend challenges, but I'm still pumped about doing those again soon.
