Workout Recap - Week of October 31, 2021

This was a fairly straightforward week to close out the month. I didn't do anything particularly ambitious with it, but keeping my rhythm while making gradual progress is an accomplishment in its own right.

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 16, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 plyometric push ups, 3 burpees


More gradual progress, with my push ups this time. Ever a welcome sight.


Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

5 sets of:

10 Chin Ups

10 Lunges (each side)

10 Side Lunges (each side)

20 High Knees (each side)


Time = 9:45

Bonus: 7 breath isometric flex hang


This was in line with my previous attempt at this workout, though I'd say having a slightly tougher bonus suggests some improvement in my performance.


Wednesday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 4, each side (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 1 set of 31 breaths (pass)

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 12, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


I had a time crunch this day, but I'm happy with what I was able to do despite that. It's nothing amazing, but it's a clear step forward from my last time doing a single set with this routine.


Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

11/8/5 Pull Ups

21/15/9 Prisoner Squats

21/15/9 Straight Leg Raises


Time = 4:45

Bonus: 5 handstand push ups


This was a simple, well-rounded workout, so I'm satisfied with having torn through it fairly smoothly. I won't deny that I could benefit from a more aggressive approach to these triplets in general, but there's nothing wrong with the occasional maintenance workout.


Saturday

Type: As Fast As Possible

1 set of:

40 Prisoner Squats

30 Push Ups

20 Hanging Knee Raises

10 Pull Ups

10 Bridges


Time = 4:15

Bonus: 13 breath isometric flex hang


This was an improvement from my previous performance on the same workout, so I'm certainly happy to see that progress. I was a little disappointed in how taxing the pull ups felt; even if I might've jumped the gun on going into them right after the previous movement without giving my forearms much of a break, I'd expect to pump out ten of them without significant issues on the first set of a workout. Something to be mindful of going forward, perhaps.
