Workout Recap - Week of February 27, 2022

I had something come up on Sunday that caused this post to be delayed, but it was a trade-off that I have no regrets about making. More relevantly, though, I'm making more steady progress, in terms of both building confidence and increasing difficulty. Only four workouts because I just wasn't feeling up to it on Thursday, but all in all, I'm satisfied with how things went.



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)

Isometric L-hang - 2 sets of 13 breaths (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 3 suicide jumps

The increased bridge count felt good, as did a return to doing suicide jumps.


Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Jump Squats

21/15/9 Diamond Push Ups

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises

Time = 6:45

Bonus: 5 handstand push ups

There's something that I find innately satisfying about getting into a rhythm with jump squats. They just feel like such a nice balance between control and fluidity, with a simple movement pattern that doesn't take active thought.


Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges

21/15/9 Handstand Push Ups

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises

Time = 6:00

Bonus: 8 hammer pull ups

Interestingly, the second set of handstand push ups was the hardest part of this routine for me. I still got through it, obviously, but I'll admit I needed to pause a couple times along the way to catch my breath and clear my head.


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

Bonus: none

Something simple to close out the week. The push ups are feeling good.
