Workout Recap - Week of October 25, 2020

Circumstances conspired to limit me to four workouts this week once again, but I'm happy with how they went, at least. I'd been expecting some relief for the future, which has failed to manifest, but to put a positive spin on it, the burden is one that I'd never complain about bearing. It's a priority-shifter, but one with no net negative impact on my quality of life.

I realize this is all quite abstract and undefined, but that's how I talk about personal matters for which I don't want to share details openly.



Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

5 Burpees

5 Bridges

Time = 4:30

Bonus: 5 pull ups, 5 burpees, 5 bridges

I feel like I'm stagnating on this routine. It might be time to push it back up to six sets.


Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

Time = 5:15

Bonus: none

I felt slow during this workout, and I think the completion time (in comparison to similar routines) corroborates that. Maybe I was just frustrated from an annoying day of work.


Type: Pass/Fail

Close Pull Ups - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Hanging Straight Leg Raises - 2 sets of 5 (pass)

Bonus: none

Getting back up to two sets with these routines felt good. Performance through the movements felt good, too. I should increase the difficulty.


Type: Pass/Fail

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 13 (pass)

Closing Bridges - 2 sets of 3 (pass)

Bonus: none

I lost track of what I was doing after the first set of diamond push ups and went into regular bridges instead of closing bridges. I only did a few reps before I realized my mistake, but it was still good for a laugh. Aside from that, this went pretty smoothly.
