Workout Recap - Week of July 3, 2022

I'm not sure how exactly it happened, but I kept having something else more interesting come up when I'd meant to post this. Alas, but it's here now.



Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 9, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 8 (pass)

One-arm Push Ups, feet apart - 1 set of 5, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 chest clap push ups, 5 SEAL burpees, 5 tuck jump burpees

I was pinched for time since I had a surprise meeting with a friend earlier in the day that made me have to shift some things around. That was worth it, though, and the bonus did a decent job of burning off any excess energy.


Type: Pass/Fail

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

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Hanging Straight Leg Raises, with hip twists - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 7 burpees

My chest was a little sore after the previous workout, so I opted out of handstand push ups in favor of doing some formal work towards dragon squats. I feel fairly comfortable lifting my rear leg off the ground almost immediately while rising from the bottom position, but I need more control on the descent before I'll feel ready to progress to baby dragon squats.


Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

12 Burpees

10 Chin Ups

10 Spider Push Ups (each side)

20 Cross-body Mountain Climbers (each side)

Time = 10:00

Bonus: 10 bridges

Pretty nice all-around workout here, and I'm satisfied with the completion time.


Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

Time = 5:00

Bonus: 8 burpees

With a massive improvement over the results I had for the similar workout last week, I think it's safe to say that I was correct about underlying fatigue being a factor with that one. Realistically, I could've gone harder here, but it is what it is. Better a good result from a suboptimal workout than a perfect result for not working out.


Type: Pass/Fail

Towel Pull Ups - 2 sets of 10 (pass)

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

Diamond Push Ups - 2 sets of 20 (pass)

Bonus: 10 breath isometric star plank (each side)

My left shoulder was feeling a bit strained (despite taking things easy in the previous workout), so I decided to postpone the usual weekend challenge to give it some recovery time while also toning things down a bit with this one. Nothing surprising, but it felt solid overall.
