Workout Recap - Week of June 26, 2022

I got things back to where I'd like them to generally be in terms of workout quantity, albeit through an atypical route that's left me with some DOMS at the moment.



Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 6, 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

I was out-of-sorts mentally during this, so balancing for the squats proved more challenging than normal. Still, I got through it without much to complain about, so that's a win.


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: none

I'd had something else planned here, but I psyched myself out of it and needed to squeeze in something at the last moment, so I did this. Not proud, but it's good enough for maintenance.


Type: As Many Reps As Possible

5 sets of 15 second intervals with 5 seconds rest of:

Plyometric Lunges (total = 70, each side)

Jump Squats (total = 41)

Side Lunges (total = 20, each side)

Burpees (total = 20)

Bonus: 12 push ups

This was my variation of Gabriel Varga's 5-minute leg destruction workout, modified to swap the semi-isometrics for something that's more sensible to measure for my approach and with a slight gap to note down my rep counts (and I also don't follow his exact form, since I go shallow with the lunges but deep with the squats, but I'm nitpicking at this point). Just like Varga said, the first set was easy, the second was noticeable, and the third through fifth were a grind. It was a fun change of pace, and I'm open to doing it again.


Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats

Time = 8:15

Bonus: 10 bridges, 20 pull ups, 40 push ups, 60 squats

Doubling up on workouts today to try getting to five for the week, and underlying fatigue was definitely a factor here. I had wanted to do eight sets originally, but I cut myself off at six because I had to take two breaks to catch my breath during the squats at that point. That said, I do want to get back to doing ten sets of this in a reasonable time at some point, so I went heavy on the bonus (though it bears mentioning that I did need to pause a couple times during each of those aside from the bridges, so the performance was not as impressive as the numbers may imply).


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Burpees

7 Bridges

Time = 8:15

Bonus: 1 burpee, 1 bridge, 10 pull ups

Not the greatest completion time, but considering that I had some nasty DOMS in my hips and thighs from the previous day, I'll take finishing about 10% off of my personal record time with a big smile.
