Last week was a good week of workouts for me! At 33 weeks, I definitely feel bigger, slower, and more awkward than I ever have before, but I’m just doing my thing, making modifications when I need to, and having as much fun as possible!
That said, here’s a recap of last week’s workouts along with a few videos to give you an idea how my workouts have changed since I’ve entered my third trimester.
Monday’s workout kicked my butt. I was sore for days!
5 rounds for time of:
5 [Power Clean + Front Rack Lunge] (95, 65)
L3: (85, 55)
L2: (65, 45)
L1: (55, 25)
I used the Rx weight for this workout, which was fine on the Power Cleans, but my legs and glutes were screaming for mercy on the front lunges. I also did Squat Thrusts instead of Burpees, which you can see me doing in the video below. I finished this workout in 8:01.
The WOD was “Cindy.” I finished 9+5, and I did all of the pull-ups (more than 50) unassisted! Yay!
I felt so sick on Thursday, I almost didn’t go to CrossFit. But, thinking back to my first trimester, I remembered working out usually helped me feel a little bit better, so I went to class. I didn’t feel awesome, but moving around definitely helped ease my morning sickness at least for a little while.
For the WOD, I used the Rx weight for the Barbell SDHP (45 pounds) and opted for step-ups instead of Box Jumps—I just didn’t have the energy. I also did Squat Thrusts instead of Burpees. I finished in 7:32 with lots of pregnancy mods!
10 Box Jumps (24, 20)
10 Barbell SDHP (75, 45)
L2: (24, 20) (65, 35)
L1: (20, 15) (45, 25)
I was a beautiful day yesterday, and I finally made it to a Saturday WOD, which was awesome! Prowler pushes and farmer’s carries!
“Ginger & Ida”
Rest 30 seconds
Rest 2-3 minutes.
*You choose the weight for both
*Prowler Push should be a sprint
*Distances in class
*This WOD is not timed. 2-3 minute rest between rounds. Believe me you will need it!
