Workout Recap - Week of March 20, 2022

I do think I increased the intensity this week, as expected, though I had overlooked that it'd be sensible to give myself an extra recovery day after the treatment I went through, so I did only four workouts. My timed performances left something to be desired, but I like to see that as motivation for the future.

 

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

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

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

One-arm Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 3, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


Stepping back up to where I'd left off with these movements, and I felt good about how I did. On a related note, I ought to either strip the grip pads off of my pull up bar or repair/replace them, since they all seem to have some tears from how much use I've put them through. It seems unnecessary to risk ripping one of them off in the middle of a workout.


Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 6:15

Bonus: none


Well, this was a pretty awful completion time, compared to how I've done in the past. I was expecting some regression, but seeing this much was a bit embarrassing. That said, I can't fix it without working on it, so I should that this as my temporary new baseline and work from there until I can recover my previous form.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

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

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 10, each side (pass)

Isometric L-hang - 2 sets of 13 breaths (pass)

Bonus: 3 pull ups


Feeling good with these movements, at least. I'll want to retrain regular pistol squats for a bit to make sure that I'm still comfortable with the full range of motion before doing those with my hands behind my back again, but I was in need of a confidence boost after that last workout, and I'm glad that I got one.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

11/8/5 Pull Ups

11/8/5 Burpees

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 5:15

Bonus: 5 breath isometric one-arm dead hang (each side)


A return to burpees is something that was long past due. I'm actually fairly satisfied with how this went overall. I'm sure it could've been better, but it didn't feel as terrible as Tuesday's workout. All in all, a nice bit of positivity to build on.
