Workout Recap - Week of August 30, 2020

September 6, 2020

Only four workouts this week, because I spent the weekend looking after a couple of furry geriatrics.  By objective measures, I should be upset at having my life molded to suit cleaning up hairballs and poop, but I'm happy to do so.  It's an animal thing.



Type: Pass/Fail


Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Push Ups - 2 sets of 16 (pass)

Bridges - 2 sets of 15 (pass)


Bonus: 5 burpees


Getting back into my old groove, I'm satisfied with where I'm at on these progressions and with my progress towards going further.  There isn't much else to say here; I'm just covering old ground in ways that I should've done the first time around.




Type: As Fast As Possible


3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Push Ups

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 4:45


Bonus: 7 burpees


I might just keep repeating this until I'm happy with the results.  I don't think this is a terrible time, but I'd like to cut it down a bit further before pushing for more difficulty.




Type: Pass/Fail


Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (fail, 10/6+4)

Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 13 (pass)

Hanging Knee Raises - 2 sets of 13 (pass)


Bonus: 4 sets of 3 plyometric push ups, 3 burpees


That second set of pull ups was just a bit too much, but I don't think I'm as far off from landing it as the numbers might imply.  Looking forward to making up for this soon.




Type: As Fast As Possible


5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 4:45


Bonus: 7 pull ups


Alright, not only am I getting back on track with these, but I feel much better through the workout, too.  I might give it another go to make sure that it wasn't a fluke performance, but I'm feeling ready to go harder very soon.
