Workout Recap - Week of February 14, 2021

I kept up with the workout quantity this week, so that's good. I'd say that the intensity was better than last week overall, too. It's still a ways short of where I'd been in the past, but I feel like I'm pushing myself to improve, so that's a win.


Type: Pass/Fail

Shoulder-width Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 6 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none

Making progress from where I'd left off last week. My shoulder-width handstand push ups are feeling clean enough that I can think about stepping up to a more difficult movement there, too. Nice results all around.


Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

5 Burpees

5 Bridges

Time = 4:45

Bonus: 10 push ups

While it's a rep each and a set short of what I'd used a challenge in the past, this is still a solid all-around workout, and I'm reasonably pleased with my completion time. There's always room for improvement, but a fine performance for my current conditions.


Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Push Ups - 2 sets of 5 (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 3 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Bonus: none

Continued gradual progression here. I need a little time to get comfortable with uneven push ups now that my body has better posture (hopefully), but aside from that, this felt good. Looking forward to going further.


Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Burpees

15 Side Lunges (each side)

30 Mountain Climbers (each side)

Time = 7:45

Bonus: 2 sets of 7 chin ups

This was a leg burner, but I liked it. I know I need to do more work on increasing my burpee volume, so I should make a point of putting them into more of my timed workouts.


Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Bridges

Time = 4:00

Bonus: 4 pull ups, 4 bridges

Much like Tuesday's, this was a bit short of what I'd done for past challenges, but it's still a good workout that went well. I know there's no shortcut to getting back to that old level aside from just doing it, but until I feel up to that, at least it seems like I'm well on my way to reaching (and ideally surpassing) that target in time.
