Workout Recap - Week of July 25, 2021

As has been my trend of late, I'm back up to five workouts for this week. The dearth of bonuses might've made the workload a bit on the light side overall, but I'm fine with how they went. Unfortunately, I did start to experience a little discomfort with my left knee a few hours after the Saturday workout, so I'm hoping that clears itself up soon enough to wave it off as nothing serious.

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

Archer Push Ups - 1 set of 12, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


After how things went down last week, I tried to ease my way back into things instead of full bore right off the bat. For that purpose, this was good.


Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 8, both sides (pass)

Bonus: 8 breath isometric uneven flex hang (both sides)


Jumping right back up to where I'd left off with these movements, right down to having the same bonus. I felt solid but not yet strong enough to push harder.


Thursday

Type: Pass/Fail

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 20 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none


I felt offbeat for this workout. I'd been consuming more caffeine than I'm used to the last few days, and I think that all kind of caught up with me here. Still, it's not like it was a bad performance; I just wasn't feeling up to doing more.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 5, each side (pass)

Archer Push Ups - 2 sets of 10, each side (pass)

Bonus: 2 shoulder-width handstand push ups


It was good to see some progress with the push ups. It was also good to cut off the bonus so quickly, since I take that to mean I was near my limits with the workout itself.


Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 12 (pass)

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 8, both sides (pass)

Bonus: none


I can't think of anything worth noting here, so let me just say thanks to any anonymous Internet people who've read this far.
