Workout Recap - Week of October 24, 2021

I had intended to do five workouts this week, but my schedule was wonky on Saturday, and it ended up being more sensible to cut back to four than try to force something. Fortunately, to be sure, but I'm pretty happy with what else I was able to do.

Sunday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 6, each side (pass)

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

Archer Push Ups - 2 sets of 15, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 plyometric push ups


Gradual progress with my pull ups is always good to see.


Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

4 sets of:

7 Pull Ups

10 Burpees

20 Mountain Climbers (each side)


Time = 7:45

Bonus: 11 straight leg raises


This felt pretty great. I do still need to be mindful of keeping my hips tucked when I kick back at the bottom of the burpees, but aside from that, I feel like I was able to push through pretty well despite the high volume.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 2 sets of 3 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 2 sets of 26 breaths (pass)

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 2 sets of 9, each side (pass)

Bonus: 2 sets of 3 two-way suicide jumps, 5 burpees


The uneven handstand push ups felt much more stable than last time, so I can start shifting some attention from holding my balance to going through a consistent and complete range of motion during them. Excellent progress.


Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Pull Ups

21/15/9 Lunges (each side)

42/30/18 Mountain Climbers (each side)


Time = 7:30

Bonus: 5 breath isometric front tuck hang


I'm thrilled at how few breaks I needed to make it through the pull ups. I was down to doing mini-sets of two reps by the end, but getting more than halfway through each set before needing a break and not needing more than three mini-sets for any of them is better than I'd expected.
