Workout Recap - Week of July 10, 2022

I was very sick for a couple of days this week, so that threw things off. It wasn't COVID, at least assuming the test I took didn't give a false negative; just a nasty bug that knocked me on my ass out of nowhere and then left about as abruptly as it came.


Aside from that, I'm still dealing with some odd tightness in my left shoulder. Nothing feels sore or tender when I squeeze or slap it, so I don't think it's a substantial injury. It's simply uncomfortable to do certain movements. I'm hoping that a bit of local massaging helps resolve whatever the issue is, but I may end up going to a doctor about it if it continues to linger.

 

Monday

Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Bridges


Time = 5:30


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 bridge, 10 shrimps (each side)


This was pretty incredible; I tried taking a little more of a breath break between sets in the second half to avoid overworking my left shoulder since it wasn't feeling 100%, and yet I still ended up setting a new personal record. Good sign for my overall fitness level.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

Bridges - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 20 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 3 burpees


This was mostly an attempt at some light exercise to help stimulate recovery from whatever sickness came down on me on Tuesday. Nothing fancy, but it was good to so some moving.


Thursday

Type: Pass/Fail


Curtsy Lunges, shin to floor - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)

Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 15 (pass)

Hanging Straight Leg Raises - 2 sets of 10 (pass)


Bonus: 2 sets of 3 tuck jump burpees, 10 shrimps (each side)


Stepping up the intensity slightly since I was feeling much better, and my body responded well. My left shoulder still feels less-than-great when I'm extending it overhead or further back (like on handstand push ups or bridges), but there doesn't seem to be any notable loss in performance, so I'm not sure what to make of that.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible


7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Burpees


Time = 7:15


Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 burpee, 10 shrimps (each side)


Not quite another personal record, but I'm still feeling pretty great about getting close to one so soon after feeling terrible earlier in the week, and it was heartening to get some more evidence that its performance isn't diminished to any notable degree. I suppose I'll just have to be patient but still keep an eye on it to make sure it isn't getting worse.
