Workout Recap - Week of June 13, 2021

I pushed myself back up to five workouts this week, which was awesome. Sure, the difficulty of each individual workout wasn't at the level that I've done in the past, but I'm trying to push myself for where I'm at now, and I can't really ask for more than that.


I can certainly get annoyed at a lack of recognition in certain circles, but should that become a significant problem, they aren't circles that I feel any real obligation to participate in, so I can just drop out. There isn't much to miss about leaving those incestuous circle-jerks; I'm only really in them now because there's a minority of other members who I enjoy interacting with, and the only reason I'm not doing so outside of said incestuous circle-jerks is to make it easier on those people to keep up with me rather than pulling them into separate side conversation. Should the annoyances outweigh that good will, I'd hope that those friends would value our contact enough to accept that extra hassle, and if they don't, maybe I'm better off without them.

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 9 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 3 sets of 16 breaths (pass)

Bonus: 4 close pull ups


Steadily getting back where I want to be with these movements. This was the first time in the last few weeks where I felt like I had some extra gas in the tank when I finished up this routine, which bodes well for the future.


Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Shrimp Squats - 3 sets of 9, both sides (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 3 sets of 4 (pass)

Bonus: 10 pull ups


I responded well last week, but there were still some issues with lingering fatigue; this week, I can say that I really felt good on the squats.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 3 sets of 3, both sides (pass)

Diamond Push Ups - 3 sets of 15 (pass)

Bonus: 10 bridges


Stepping further with my push ups, and again, I think I could've done more. The gap wasn't as much as it was last week, but there was enough of one that I want to stay aggressive going forward.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 12 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 3 sets of 16 breaths (pass)

Bonus: 5 close pull ups


I decided to switch back to normal hand spacing for the handstand push ups this time to go a little easy on my wrists. In retrospect, it was probably more conservative than was necessary, but as I've been doing throughout the pandemic, I'm choosing to err on the side of caution.


Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

Shrimp Squats - 3 sets of 9, both sides (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 3 sets of 4 (pass)

Bonus: 20 push ups


The first set of bridges was rough today. I think I still need to be more mindful of getting sufficient warm-up.
