Workout Recap - Week of February 13, 2022

Despite getting confused and thinking that Tuesday was Wednesday this week, I managed to nevertheless pull things together and grind out five workouts. While I'm pretty clearly still off from my old peak, I feel close enough that it won't be an impossible journey to reach and eventually exceed it.

 

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

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

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 10, each side (pass)

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

Bonus: none


After the success that I had with the one-armed push ups last week, I decided to just go all the way and do them with my feet together this time around. It was a success, and while it was certainly a (much) harder movement, I didn't feel like my overall stability or body alignment were noticeably worse, so I'm happy to continue on that path.


Wednesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Push Ups

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 4:15

Bonus: 10 bridges


I'd had a more difficult workout planned here, but since I messed up and took Tuesday as a rest day instead on accident, I had to readjust with the target of having four consecutive days of workouts. Thus, I went with something easier here.


Thursday

Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Burpees

6 Bridges


Time = 6:30

Bonus: 2 burpees, 2 bridges


Honestly, this wasn't as bad as I'd worried it would be, given how my pull ups/bridges workout went last week. It was slower than ideal, sure, but at least I can feel the potential to recover.


Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Push Ups

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 4:15

Bonus: none


A confluence of events conspired against doing something harder here, in addition to my Tuesday/Wednesday mistake. Still, I can't complain too much about holding steady.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Burpees


Time = 5:30

Bonus: 2 pull ups, 2 burpees


Again, off from my old peak but not by so much as to be discouraging. Last week's road to returning had been an embarrassment; this week's was merely a display that I have some old ground to make up.
