Workout Recap - Week of January 10, 2021

I had been trying to push back up to five workouts for this week, but I must've slept awkwardly on Friday night because my lower back was bizarrely sore on Saturday. In any case, while I played things safely because of that, I did manage to follow through on my intention to add more variety to what I was doing. I'm expecting that trend to continue.



Type: Pass/Fail

Shrimp Squats - 3 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Hanging Straight Leg Raises - 3 sets of 7 (pass)

Bonus: 10 breath isometric one-arm handstand

I've been slacking on getting squats into these workouts regularly, so I made it a focal point to correct that oversight in this one. They felt strong, so I don't think I've suffered much regression on that front, but it's something that I shouldn't have let become a question mark in the first place.


Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

Time = 5:00

Bonus: 20 breath isometric handstand

This old classic again. The completion time is bad compared to what I've done before, but just taking steps towards doing more timed workouts is a good thing.


Type: Pass/Fail

Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 18 (pass)

Closing Bridges - 2 sets of 5 (pass)

Close Pull Ups - 2 sets of 9 (pass)

Bonus: 5 burpees

There isn't a whole lot to be said for this one. I'm continuing to work towards advancing with all of these, but I don't have confidence that it's the right time to take any of those next steps just yet. In order to keep some good vibes going, though, it's notable that at least I'm getting back into my peak pattern of which days I'm doing workouts on during the week.


Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

12 Side Lunges, each side

10 Push Ups

10 Sit Ups

Time = 6:30

Bonus: 10 pull ups

Alright, taking strides towards something new with this one! Nothing monumental, but progress is often a slow and incremental process.
