25 Dead Lifts (135, 95)

This was my first WOD doing 20-inch box jumps since giving birth. My “Bambi legs” are getting better! I used 95 pounds for the deadlifts and did all of the pull-ups unassisted. My T2B need some work, so I ended up scaling them after about 7-8 reps to strict knee raises. I finished this WOD in 11:39.

Saturday: 5K run (27:25)

  1. I am loving all the work out posts!! 🙂 Keep them coming!! Way to go on getting back into the swing of things post-baby! 🙂

  2. I love that you remained so active during your pregnancy and when you were able after baby’s birth. I’m not a mom, but I remember back in the day (the 80’s) my sisters were starting their families. They were more or less told to sit back, eat for two and rest ALL the time. They all gained too much weight and had tough labours. Now, I’m seeing pregnant ladies and new moms who look great. They are eating well and working out. There is a lady at my gym who is due in Oct. She rides the stationary bike, does Yoga and lifts light weights. It’s great that pregnant ladies are taking charge of their health these days for themselves and baby. Great job!

  3. Those are some impressive workouts! I just started CrossFit and am half way through the fundamentals course. You inspired me to try it and I’m sensing a very quick addiction! 🙂 It’s fun to see your workouts and impressive how much you can do so soon after baby Q! Nice work!
