Workout Recap - Week of May 8, 2022

Good bit of work for this week. The next couple of weeks will likely be lighter (due to some travel and other matters), so I'm glad that I went hard here.



Type: Pass/Fail

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

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

One-arm Push Ups, feet together - 2 sets of 4, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 plyometric push ups

I'm very happy with what I was able to do with this routine. It's been a slow road making progress with my bridges, but I really feel like I'm exerting much more control throughout almost the full range of motion, aside from a little drop at the end of the descent. If I can get that addressed with continued work, I should be very close to free stand-to-stand bridges.


Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

10 Chin Ups

10 SEAL Burpees

10 Table Bridges

20 Tuck Jumps

Time = 11:00

Bonus: 2 sets of 6 towel pull ups

The first set was pretty clean here, but it was an absolute grind by the third one. SEAL burpees (doing two extra push ups with alternating knee lifts) have quickly become a variant that I like a lot, but they're more taxing than they seem like they should be.


Type: Pass/Fail

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

Pistol Squats - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Hanging Straight Leg Raises, with hip twists - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 4 towel pull ups

I felt very good doing the pistol squats with this routine. It's safe to say that my comfort with the movement is pretty much restored, so I can push further on the rep count.


Type: As Many Reps As Possible

3 sets of 30 second intervals with 10 seconds rest of:

Burpees (total = 24)

Mountain Climbers (total = 100, each side)

Sit Ups (total = 30)

Bridges (total = 45)

Cross-body Mountain Climbers (total = 82, each side)

Hanging Knee Raises (total = 60)

Bonus: 2 sets of 7 close pull ups

My hip flexors were not happy with this workout, but I felt good about it overall.


Type: As Fast As Possible

7 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

7 Burpees

Time = 7:15

Bonus: 1 pull up, 1 bridge

Great to see that I'm on the cusp of tying my old personal record with this challenge.
