Workout Recap - Week of April 4, 2021

I tried something different this week. Every day started with at least ten pull ups, and I did a few more sets of them throughout the day. In return, my actual workouts were simplified. I didn't have any particular goal in mind for this, aside from just seeing how my body responds. It's been an interesting experiment, and although I haven't noticed any huge benefits yet (compared to my typical routine), I'll stick with it for another week to give it some more time.

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 9 (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 1 set of 9, each side (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 1 set of 17 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none


Though the overall numbers may not be anything remarkable, I'm noticing that I can get through more squats before needing to pause for a breath. That's a sign of progress.

Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Push Ups - 1 set of 13, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 5 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 5, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


Given the extra pull ups sprinkled throughout my day, it's not surprising that my grip was feeling rather taxed on these uneven pull ups. I pushed through, though, so maybe I should've done even more.


Thursday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 9 (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 1 set of 9, each side (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 1 set of 17 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none


Definitely seeing improvement in my squat endurance. Awesome!


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 9 (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 1 set of 9, each side (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


I brought in an extra rep for the uneven pull ups this time around, and that pressed against my limits. Good, now I know where to set the baseline to go further.
