Last Week’s Workouts {29 Weeks}

Rectangle 58

Hi, I'm Tina!

I’m the owner of Carrots ‘N’ Cake as well as a Certified Nutrition Coach and Functional Diagnostic Nutrition Practitioner (FDN-P). I use macros and functional nutrition to help women find balance within their diets while achieving their body composition goals.

Fit + Fueled

An in-depth, 4-week reverse dieting course for women who feel like their metabolism has slowed down, think they might have hormonal imbalance and can’t lose weight no matter what they do.
Get all the tools to take your physique into your hands. Over six-months, you’ll transform your life, mindset, and body in this program that’s part-course, part-coaching, and part-community.

So, I guess last week was just a blah week for my workouts because I felt a whole lot better this week. I had plenty of energy and basically felt like my old self””minus, of course, the extra 30 pounds on my body! Haha!

Sunday: Off

Monday: 2-mile dog walk + CrossFit

Kerrie and I took Bentley and Murphy to the dog park to let them run out some of their doggie energy.

And then I headed to CrossFit for this workout:


I scaled the crap out of this one, but I was still SO SORE the next day (holy quads)! I scaled the Thrusters to 45-pounds, did Squat Thrusts instead of Burpees and Kipping Knee Raises for the T2B. I flew through the workout and finished in just over 7 minutes.

Tuesday: CrossFit

Chest-to-Bar Pull-ups won’t happen again until Baby Haupert arrives, so I scaled to regular (unassisted) pull-ups and reduced the number of reps to 5. I had planned to do 10 reps per round, but it was taking me a lot longer than expected to get through them. The max number of pull-ups I can string together nowadays is 3 reps and, as soon as I start feeling fatigued, that number quickly drops to two or one rep at a time. Long story short, doing 5 reps per round made a lot more sense. I finished this workout in 12:29.

“Johnny Chimpo”
5 Rounds, as fast as possible of:
10 Chest to Bar Pull-ups
20 Sumo Deadlift High Pull (53, 35)
30 Double Unders

Wednesday: SoulCycle + CrossFit

I got my SoulCycle on Wednesday afternoon (review here) and then headed to CrossFit for a workout.

I had no intention of doing a double workout on Wednesday, but by the time I got home and took Murphy for his afternoon walk, it was almost 4:00 PM. I was still in my workout clothes and wasn’t really tired after SoulCycle, so I hopped in the car with Mal and went to CrossFit. Plus, the WOD was one that you could easily push yourself or go as easy as you wanted.

“Said No One Ever”
4 Rounds of the following:
:30 Power Clean (95, 65)
:15 Rest
:30 Box Jump (24, 20)
:15 Rest
:30 Push up
:15 Rest
:30 Overhead Squat (95, 65)
:15 Rest

I scaled the Power Cleans and Overhead Squats to 55 pounds and did banded push-ups (pictured below). I can’t do regular push-ups anymore and my belly gets in the way if I do them on my knees, so banded pull-ups are a great option for pregnant ladies. They’re also awesome if you just want to work on proper push-up form. I know a lot of people do the “worm” when they start to get tired, so the band helps you keep your form. I’m always super sore after doing banded push-ups because you can’t cheat on your form at all, so I get a really good workout.

You can either place the band right below your sports bra strap (pictured below) or at your hips (pictured above). Both options work, but if you’re someone who does the worm, I’d go with the hip option to give your core a little support.

Thursday: Off

Friday: CrossFit

Open WOD 14.4 was a smoker! And I didn’t even do the 50 Toes-to-Bar! (I scaled them to Kipping Knee Raises.) I got through the super heavy, 95-pound cleans with 12 seconds to spare, so I was more than happy. 14.4 is definitely a good one! I had “CrossFit Cough” all night! Ha!

“Open WOD 14.4”³
60 Calorie row
50 T2B
40 Wall Balls (20, 14)
30 Power Cleans (135, 95)
20 Muscle-ups

Saturday: Off
