Workout Recap - Week of May 30, 2021
It was a slow start to this week's workouts, as I didn't want to rush my recovery from whatever trauma I'd inflicted on myself during the previous week. I got things on track, though, and I'm ready to push on.
Speaking of getting on track, I've also got a post coming up soon that isn't just another workout recap! I'm still debating just how much preparation to do for it, but in any case, the current streak will end this week!
2 sets of:
5 Pull Ups (pass)
10 Push Ups (pass)
15 Prisoner Squats (pass)
Bonus: 5 handstand push ups
This was very light compared to what I usually do because it was meant more to gauge my current condition than to push myself. My strength was still good, but I ended up far more winded than I should've, so I'm glad that I didn't try to do too much. In light of that, I'll tick down the difficulty for now and see how my body handles it.
Close Handstand Push Ups - 3 sets of 8 (pass)
Isometric L-Hang - 3 sets of 15 breaths (pass)
Bonus: 30 squats
I hadn't intended to go so hard with this one (see the comments to the previous workout), but I felt really good after what I'd started doing, so I decided to just go for it. As before, I was more out-of-breath than I'd like, but I think the fact that half of the movements were an isometric hold helped me to get through it.
Prisoner Squats - 3 sets of 20 (pass)
Bridges - 3 sets of 10 (pass)
Bonus: 8 chin ups
My lack of stamina certainly had some influence here, and I was stiff until partway into the second set of bridges. I might look to take more time before going into the deep end again on these.
Pull Ups - 3 sets of 8 (pass)
Push Ups - 3 sets of 15 (pass)
Bonus: 16 straight leg raises
These felt good, and I wasn't left sucking as much air in the end as I'd been anticipating. Good signs for going forward.
