Workout Recap - Week of February 6, 2022

Circumstances conspired to keep me from reaching five workouts this week, but I did manage four, including getting some more traction towards my old weekend challenges. Getting tuned up enough to not embarrass myself with a 100 burpee challenge to open March won't be easy, but it's not as if the world is going to stop turning if I do embarrass myself (and if it does, nobody will survive long enough to figure out why).

 

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 4 (pass)

Isometric V-hang - 2 sets of 10 breathes (pass)

Bonus: none


Stepping up to two sets, and it felt good. I'll be cautious about pushing too hard too quickly, but this is a great sign nonetheless.


Tuesday

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 - 2 sets of 2, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


Bumping these up to two sets as well. With my mind focused on it, my core was much more stable during the one-armed push ups this time around.


Thursday

Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

6 Pull Ups

6 Bridges


Time = 5:30

Bonus: 2 pull ups, 2 bridges


A rather bad completion time, but I survived the workout, which was the main goal. If nothing else, this ought to be an easy benchmark to improve on as I get back into the swing of things.


Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 4 (pass)

Isometric V-hang - 2 sets of 12 breathes (pass)

Bonus: none


Progress is progress, no matter how gradual.
