Workout Recap - Week of August 29, 2021

As seems to be my pattern of late, I'm back down to four workouts for this week. There were some legitimate reasons behind it, but those details are unimportant. Keeping on the grind, until it's done.

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)

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

Bonus: 10 breath isometric one-arm plank (each side)


I hadn't thought of it in advance, but this workout had quite some work on torso stabilization against rotation. That ought to help with getting back to doing one-arm push ups.


Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 16 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 1 set of 30 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none


I was pinched for time, so just a single set. Making the jump in the L-hang duration felt great.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Archer Push Ups - 2 sets of 12, each side (pass)

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 8, each side (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 7 pull ups


More push up progress, which is always welcome. While I don't want to risk injury from impatience, a certain sense of urgency is useful for making progress.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Push Ups

21/15/9 Sit Ups


Time = 7:00

Bonus: 8 pull ups


On the surface, this completion time is the same as my last go at this workout. Behind that number, though, there were multiple significant circumstantial factors working against my performance. Through that lens, matching my previous result was a win.
