Workout Recap - Week of May 16, 2021

Still keeping things simple, with some little stretches mixed in.


While I do dislike these intervals where this blog is basically just a series of workout recaps, I think it's good for me to have something to keep doing. Movement need not be remarkable to yield good results.

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 3 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Uneven Push Ups - 3 sets of 9, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


I had a slight bit of tightness in my right forearm this time, so it seems like whatever sets that off is more sensitive to bar work than to pushing the floor. It might be a sign that I'm going a little too hard on that, so maybe I should try mixing in more impromptu pull ups or dead hangs to improve adaptation.

Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 7 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 3 sets of 14 breaths (pass)

Bonus: none


Going steady here. Nothing fancy, but I'll take this performance.


Friday

Type: Pass/Fail

Shrimp Squats - 3 sets of 7, each side (pass)

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

Bonus: none


Pushing a step further with the squats. I think the biggest difference in my daily routine (from a fitness perspective) since I started working from home is that I'm not going up and down several flights of stairs each day anymore, so I should be vigilant about keeping my lower body in good condition.


Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 3 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Uneven Push Ups - 3 sets of 9, each side (pass)

Bonus: 10 straight leg raises


Nothing ambitious about the workout itself, but I did push myself in do some bonus this time. On a long journey, even small progress leads to fruitful returns.
