Workout Recap - Week of March 27, 2022

I'm currently recovering from some nasty DOMS, which is a fair sign that I did actually push myself pretty hard this week. I can live with a bit of pain management/tolerance in that exchange.

 

Monday

Type: As Fast As Possible

4 sets of:

10 Jump/thrust Squats

10 Push Ups

20 Mountain Climbers (each side)

20 High Knees (each side)


Time = 8:00

Bonus: 5 pull ups


I want to get back to doing big leg movements, since firing those thick muscles is a key part of improving metabolic conditioning. This was a stepping stone to gauge how I might be able to handle doing some burpee volume, and while the results could have been better, it felt good enough that I think it'd be fair to go further.


Tuesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 8, each side (pass)

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

One-arm Push Ups, feet together - 1 set of 4, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


I was feeling some time crunch, so just a single set and no bonus here. Still, I'm pleased with how I did.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 15 (pass)

Pistol Squats - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)

Isometric L-hang - 1 set of 16 breaths (pass)

Bonus: 15 prisoner squats


My return to pistol squats was a struggle, because I suppose I've been slacking on doing the full range of knee motion with unilateral leg exercises for a while now. I'm glad I didn't try to do more advanced variants.


Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

11/8/5 Pull Ups

11/8/5 Bridges

21/15/9 Push Ups


Time = 5:45

Bonus: 10 squats


I had some DOMS kicking my ass/thighs, but I think I managed to push through to a fair performance. It's not the best I've ever done, but adding in that I also sprinkled some half-dozen individual pistol squats in throughout the day to try redeveloping some of that muscle memory (at least with respect to maintaining balance and fluidity of motion at full depth), I'll take it.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

6 sets of:

5 Pull Ups

10 Push Ups

15 Prisoner Squats


Time = 6:30

Bonus: 2 skin-the-cats


Given that I did an extra set compared to last week's go of this routine and only extended my completion time by one 15-second increment, this definitely feels like a win. At least I'm within sight of being back to averaging less than one minute per set.
