Workout Recap - Week of March 14, 2021

I'm happy to be back up to five workouts for this week. Timing was a bit wonky for me on Saturday, so I pushed back the weekend challenge workout due to lack of faith in being able to give a representative performance, but otherwise, nothing too special comes to my mind for introductory commentary.



Type: As Fast As Possible

4 sets of:

10 Pull Ups

20 Mountain Climbers (each side)

15 Prisoner Squats

20 Mountain Climbers (each side)

Time = 7:15

Bonus: 5 handstand push ups

Trying to push my workouts to have more volume of big movements more often. I'm happy with how this one went. My legs were feeling some burn, but that was the point.


Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 5 (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 2 sets of 7, each side (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 11 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none

Continuing to make gradual progress with these movements, which is great. I ought to get back into the habit of doing some explosive movements as a post-warmup bonus, but aside from that, the tortoise keeps plodding along.


Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

8 Lunges (each side)

12 Push Ups

10 Straight Leg Raises

25 High Knees

Time = 9:30

Bonus: 9 chin ups

This didn't seem like much up front, but I was sucking wind by the end of it. It could've used more upper body movements, perhaps, but it's hard to fault much when I can feel that I'm going hard enough to make progress.


Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Push Ups - 2 sets of 7, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 2 sets of 4 (pass)

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Bonus: none

More progress with the push ups, while I wait for my comfort with the others to build enough for me to do more. All in all, an unremarkable but effective workout.


Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 6 (pass)

Shrimp Squats - 2 sets of 7, each side (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 12 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none

I repeated this pass/fail routine since I was in an awkward spot of being too hungry to feel up to a timed workout but not having enough time to eat and digest for a later workout. I added to both the handstand push ups and the L-hangs, though, so it wasn't a wasted workout by any means, just not the one I'd planned for.
