• Last Week’s Workouts {24 Weeks}

    February 15, 2014

    Another great week of workouts! I actually worked out quite a lot this week—only one true rest day. Jeez, that’s more activity that I typically got before I was pregnant! I dunno, I guess I was felt especially good this week!

    I know at some point pregnancy is going to slow me down in a major way, so I’m staying as active as possible while I can. That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts!

    Sunday: CrossFit (Open Gym)

    Mal and I did “Fight Gone Bad” during Open Gym. Recap here. (Brightly-colored socks always make workouts more fun!)

    Monday: CrossFit

    The WOD was an AMRAP 10 followed by a quickie, all-out workout. Recap here.

    Tuesday: 60-minute spinning class

    Wednesday: CrossFit

    Wednesday’s class had a nice little WOD: Burpees + Double Unders. I did Squat Thrusts instead of Burpees, which were still really hard! Jeez, Louise. I was surprised how exhausted they made me. I remember the days when I could bust out 10 Burpees, no problem, but now I’m stopping after 4 or 5 Squat Thrusts to rest. Oh, how things have changed! I finished 8 + 2.

    Thursday: CrossFit

    Thursday’s workout was kind of deceiving. We warmed-up on the Power Snatches before the start of the workout, and our coach told us to work above the WOD weight, so I did a bunch of reps at 55 pounds—nothing crazy because I’m still getting use to how and whether I can navigate my baby bump with a barbell. (So far, so good!)

    When it came time to do the WOD, the first round of Power Snatches seemed so light. I plowed through them and felt awesome. Well, this drastically changed by the second and third rounds… oh my goodness, the Power Snatches got SO HARD. Not really heavy, but just exhausting—same goes with the Sumo Deadlift High Pulls. I thought it was maybe because I was pregnant that I was struggling so much, but everyone was slowing down and breaking up their reps. Apparently, the Toes-to-Bar (Kipping Knee Raises for me), box jumps, and rowing just really wore us out!

    I finished 3+25 (the clock ran out during my 4th row) using the prescribed weight and 20” box for box jumps.

    Sounds like a busy week! I love fun socks too–Pure Barre recently came out with colored sticky socks and when I saw them at my studio it was the most exciting part of my day!

    Dang girl! Most of my workouts had to be inside because I was snowed in all week but I got them in! But looks like you got me beat!

    Man you’re doing so well! You can lift so heavy any way when I hear you say you ONLY did 55lbs ….it’s still epic in my eyes! :)

    Wow! That’s impressive workouts. I’m more envious of your ability to take “off” days. I have an extremely difficult time with that. I have to do some active even if it’s lower impact. I can’t just have a day where I do nothing.

    That’s great! It’s so interesting to read how things area changing along the way, I hadn’t even considered how the baby bump might affect the barbell =)

    My baby didn’t arrive until 42 weeks and I exercised actively all the up to the day before he arrived (12/3/13)… So you may not have to slow down much!

    Looks like you had a great week of workouts this week! I’ve had more of a low key week when it has come to exercise this week as work has been pretty busy but I’m hoping to step it up again this week.

    You rock, Tina! These look like some great workouts. Baby Haupert must be havin’ fun jumping around with you ;)
    I’m going to wear some neon high knee socks during my workout one day.

    Those are fun socks!!

    Way to rock your workouts this week :) By the way, you might not have to slow down much, I taught fitness classes up until my baby was born (15 days past her due date…grrrrr! hah), and felt fine. Just had to go to bed early!

    Have a nice weekend!

    Great workouts. I keep thinking about buying those ProCompression and then wussing out and buying boring plain colors instead, but those are so fun!
