Workout Recap - Week of September 5, 2021

I'm trying to get back to the workout pattern that I used to have, so this week and the next will be a transition period. I'm not expecting the change to take longer than that, but we shall see when the time comes. It's not that there was anything particularly special about my previous format, but I'd prefer the balance to tip in favor of doing more work against a clock.

Monday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 1 set of 6, each side (pass)

Stand-to-stand Bridges, one wall touch on the way up - 1 set of 8 (pass)

Archer Push Ups - 1 set of 15, each side (pass)

Bonus: 20 breath isometric dead hang


Jumping back to doing three movements for one of these workouts was interesting. I was certainly feeling some burn by the time I got to the push ups, which made it more of a challenge to keep my form clean. Since I do feel like I'm running out of breath faster than I ought to when doing timed workouts, maybe this can be a step towards addressing that.


Tuesday

Type: As Fast As Possible

3 sets of:

21/15/9 Plyometric Lunges (each side)

21/15/9 Push Ups

21/15/9 Sit Ups


Time = 5:15

Bonus: 7 pull ups


A familiar workout of late, with a shift to doing plyometric lunges instead of normal ones. The extra pep felt good.


Thursday

Type: Pass/Fail

Close Handstand Push Ups - 1 set of 16 (pass)

Isometric L-Hang - 1 set of 30 breaths (pass)

Shrimp Squats, both hands behind me - 1 set of 10, each side (pass)

Bonus: none


I had a devil of a time getting started on this workout for whatever reason, so what should've been two sets got cut down to one. I'm not exactly happy about that, but I can't change it now, so I'll just have to try harder in the future.


Friday

Type: As Fast As Possible

1 set of:

40 Prisoner Squats

30 Push Ups

20 Hanging Knee Raises

10 Pull Ups


Time = 4:15

Bonus: 10 bridges


For the time being, I think doing a short timed workout is better than doing no workout at all. That said, I felt more winded by the end of this than I would've wanted. No alarms for the moment, but it's something to be mindful of going forward.


Saturday

Type: Pass/Fail

Uneven Pull Ups - 2 sets of 5, 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 13, each side (pass)

Bonus: 4 sets of 3 plyometric push ups


Compared to the start of the week, I don't think my fatigue during the push ups was quite as bad, but it was still something to be improved on. Still, I'm counting this as a solid performance.
