Workout Recap - Week of April 3, 2022

I brought back some heat this week, and I'm thrilled about how my body handled it. Sure, the completion times could've been better, but I'm quite happy to take that in stride with the knowledge that I was pushing myself.

 

Monday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

10 Jump Squats

5 Pull Ups

10 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

15 Push Ups

10 Bridges

10 Hanging Knee Raises


Time = 8:15

Bonus: 5 pull ups


I happened to be looking at one of my old fitness idea mine sites (12 Minute Athlete), and something about this post inspired me to do the associated workout. Granted, I did modify two of them, swapping in plyometric lunges for split squats and bridges for short bridges to remove the need for extra equipment and increase the challenge, respectively. In the end, though, it was a nice circuit to rip through fairly smoothly and gain some confidence from the process.


Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

4 sets of:

10 Pull Ups

10 Burpees

15 Mountain Climbers (each side)

15 Sit Ups


Time = 12:15

Bonus: 10 breath isometric towel dead hang


This was a nice grind. Burpee and pull up volume are always welcome, and the rest burned up my core and kept me from catching my breath too easily while still letting those other major muscle groups recover for the next set. I was hoping for a faster time, admittedly, but I'll take this for now.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

One-arm Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Bonus: 3 two-way suicide jumps, 3 plank builds


Not listed here: I also did my first fingerless false grip pull up on this day. Putting that together with the routine itself, and I'm feeling positive about my bar work.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)

Isometric L-hang Hip Twists - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Bonus: 3 two-way suicide jumps


Much better performance with the pistol squats this week, and I didn't end up with any notable DOMS, either. I still need a little work to get fully comfortable with the bottom position, but I'm well on my way.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees

6 Bridges


Time = 7:00

Bonus: 3 pull ups


An old classic returns, and I was just one time interval off of my personal record! I'm incredibly pumped about how this went.
