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.

Monday

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.

Tuesday

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.


Wednesday

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.


Friday

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.


Saturday

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.
