Workout Recap - Week of April 25, 2021
Well, I got back up to speed with doing five workouts this week, so that's good. I've been lacking the motivation to do any other posts, but I'm sure I'll get on track with that again soon enough. Throwing yourself into unnecessary battles all the time is only for fiction.
Uneven Push Ups - 1 set of 15, each side (pass)
Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 6 (pass)
Isometric L-Hang - 1 set of 20 breaths (pass)
Bonus: 8 chin ups
More steady L-hang progress. The other movements felt good, too. All in all, I'm rather pleased with how things went, under the circumstances.
Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 10 (pass)
Shrimp Squats - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)
Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 7, each side (pass)
Bonus: 10 bridges
The first few shrimps squats were a little shaky, but once I got back into the groove of them, this all felt good.
Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 7 (pass)
Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
Uneven Push Ups - 2 sets of 12, each side (pass)
I shook up the arrangement with an upper body-focus this time. I definitely felt the load through my lats, which I take as a good sign that I was keeping them engaged. Shoulder discipline has been something I've tried to be mindful about.
Shrimp Squats - 2 sets of 8, each side (pass)
Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 5 (pass)
Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 16 breaths (pass)
A lower body-focus to compliment the previous workout. I don't have much else to say about this.
Pull Ups - 3 sets of 8 (pass)
Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 12 (pass)
Bonus: 5 km walk
Another small change-of-pace with this one. There was a little excess tension in my right forearm during the first set of handstand push ups, but it didn't crop up again in the latter two. I've had that happen sometimes in the past when doing pull ups and handstand push ups in close succession. Having it come up as it did is probably a sign of insufficient warm-up. I fixed having that concern with my bridges, so I'm confident I can take care of it here, too.
