Workout Recap - Week of August 15, 2021
Naturally, announcing some plans in the intro for my previous recap meant that they had to get derailed this week. I had some discomfort in one of my toes to start the week, so I took things light to give it time to recover. It did so eventually, and it has not gotten agitated again in the days since, so I don't think it was a sign of any deeper issue, but I'll bear it in mind as I turn up the intensity again.
Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)
Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)
I kept things focused on my upper body due to some discomfort in my left foot. Despite that, I'm satisfied that I was pushing myself. All in all, making the best of a bad situation.
Bridges - 2 sets of 20 (pass)
Close Squats - 2 sets of 20 (pass)
I was feeling better, so I went with something that would use my feet without being too extreme, aiming to stimulate healing in the area. I had no issues with the workout itself, which I'm taking as a good sign, though it's always disappointing to have to take a step back like this.
One-arm Half Push Ups - 2 sets of 3, each side (fail: 3, 2+1)
Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 22 breathes (pass)
I overstepped what my torso could handle when it comes to stabilizing. It wasn't a complete failure, but I ought to do some one-arm planking and similar remedial unilateral work to build up what I need.
Type: As Fast As Possible
3 sets of:
21/15/9 Push Ups
21/15/9 Sit Ups
Time = 7:00
Bonus: 6 close pull ups
After a few days of feeling good, I figured it was time to see how my foot felt with some more load going through it. It held up perfectly fine, so I'm happy about that.
