Workout Recap - Week of February 28, 2021

Seeing as last week was all pass/fail workouts, it only makes sense that this week would be all timed workouts. I tried to step up the difficulty of them, too, compared to most of the timed workouts I'd been doing for the last few weeks. In the end, I'm happy with both what I set and how I did.

Sunday

Type: As Fast As Possible

8 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 10:15

Bonus: 4 chin ups


Didn't feel quite ready to go back up to ten sets for this routine, but even just this much was more than I'd done in recent memory. The performance wasn't up to what I'd been capable of doing in the past, but I know that potential is still in me. It's just a matter of striving on until I reawaken it, and hopefully surpass it in time.

Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Handstand Push Ups

10 Bridges

15 Cross-body Mountain Climbers (each side)


Time = 7:30

Bonus: 7 chin ups


This was a grinder for my shoulders, back, and waist. My hamstrings were experiencing some DOMS from the previous workout, too, which didn't help matters. Pushing through it left me feeling better, though, so it's all good.


Wednesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

10 Burpees

20 Mountain Climbers (each side)

10 Pull Ups

30 High Knees (each side)


Time = 7:45

Bonus: 4 handstand push ups


I need to work on more volume of burpees and pull ups if I want to get back to pounding out weekend challenge workouts, ergo this routine. I probably could've done another set to burn out more of my reserves, but this was plenty hard enough in the moment.


Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Burpees

15 Side Lunges (each side)

30 Mountain Climbers (each side)


Time = 7:00


Bonus: 25 breath isometric dead hang


This was a routine I did a couple of weeks ago. Improving the completion time by almost a whole minute was very encouraging.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Bridges


Time = 6:15


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 bridge


There was no way to getting back to doing my old weekend challenges short of throwing myself into them again eventually, so I gave it a shot. Not quite the best completion time I've ever had (5:45 PR), but this was honestly better than I thought I'd do. Very cool!
