Workout Recap - Week of December 27, 2020

I didn't aim to do anything fancy to cap off the year. Just finishing on pace was good enough, in my eyes. 2020 was certainly a trying year, and while that will continue into 2021, I think there's reason to be optimistic about turning things around and getting back on track this year, both on a personal level and on societal/global level.

Monday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Diamond Push Ups

21/5/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 4:30

Bonus: none


This was an improvement over how I did last week. That's always a good sign.

Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Pull Ups - 3 sets of 6 (pass)

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 6 (pass)

Bonus: none


Keeping apace with these movements. I feeling like I can start pushing myself further with both of them, though.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Closing Bridges - 3 sets of 4 (pass)

Hanging Straight Leg Raises - 3 sets of 7 (pass)

Bonus: 15 breath isometric flex hang


Making progress with both of these feels good. My second set of bridges, in particular, was strong. I'm still falling during the final bit of the movement, but I'm able to go deeper into the bend with more control than I've ever been able to do before.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Diamond Push Ups

21/5/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 4:15


Bonus: 20 breath isometric flex hang


It feels great to see improvements against a clock again. I should look for more diversity in my timed workouts, but for the moment, kicking off the new year with a win is pretty great.
