Workout Recap - Week of January 16, 2022

No point in a lengthy intro when I'm writing this right after the last one. I'll be fine with going back to my usual calisthenics, but I might consider getting some kettlebells for future variety.

 

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Pull Ups - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

24 kg Kettlebell Deadlift - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

Dips - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

24 kg Kettlebell Squats - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

Bonus: none


Increasing the volume some, and my body seems to be responding well.


Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Pull Ups - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

Dips - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

16 kg Kettlebell Shoulder Press - 3 sets of 5, each side (pass)

60 lbs Barbell Standing Rows - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

Bonus: none


This workout did a nice job of putting my shoulders through a variety of loads. A fine experiment.


Thursday

Type: Pass/Fail

24 kg Kettlebell Deadlift - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

Hanging Leg Raises - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

24 kg Kettlebell Squats - 3 sets of 5 (pass)

Bonus: 10 20-lbs weighted lunges (each side)


Something of a lower body-focused compliment to the previous workout. I should be pushing my legs harder.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Pull Ups - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

60 lbs Barbell Shoulder Press - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

60 lbs Barbell Front Squats - 2 sets of 8 (pass)

Bonus: 8 60-lbs weighted calf raises


Losing the free forearm rotation by switching from kettlebells to a barbell for the shoulder press made it feel awkward. Not in a bad way, just in a way that was unfamiliar.
