Last Week’s Workouts {Week 25}

I’m definitely starting to feel pregnant! My belly feels large and in charge, and I know I still have a long way to go. I can’t even imagine how difficult workouts are going to feel during the third trimester. Oh, boy. Until then, I’m going to get in as many workouts as I can. That said, here is a recap of last week’s workouts!

Sunday: CrossFit (Open Gym)

Mal and some of his buddies decided to do “Nate,” a hero WOD, at Open Gym on Sunday, so I joined them with my own (pregnant lady) version of it. I subbed Pull-ups for the Muscle-Ups, Push Presses for the Handstand Push-ups, and did the kettlebells swings as usual. The kettlebell swings were surprisingly the hardest part for me. I finished 15 rounds in 20 minutes.

Friday’s WOD was short and sweet:

I used 75 pounds for the Deadlifts and Front Squats and finished in 5:05.

Saturday: CrossFit

Saturday partner WOD = the best!

In teams of 1 male and 1 female, complete 10 rounds of the following as fast as possible:
20 Wallballs (20, 14)
16 Power Cleans (135, 95)
14 Toes to Bar OR 18 Knee Raises

L3: (20, 14) (115, 75)
L2: (14, 10) (95, 55)
L1: (10, 8) (75, 35)

*Split work as your team deems necessary. For instance, if you are not great at wallballs and your partner is, maybe you could break it up that you do 7-8 reps and they do the rest. Talk about your weaknesses and strength with your partner.

It is no problem if your partner is doing a different weight or scaling a movement

I teamed up with my favorite partner (in life) and we divided all of the reps 50/50. So, by the end of the workout, we had each completed 100 Wallballs, 80 Power Cleans, and 70 Toes-to-Bar/Kipping Knee Raises. We finished in 24:35. Mal did Rx; I did L3.

  1. Your workouts are impressive! I’m sure you will continue to workout during your third trimester, but probably not as intense or a lower impact. I’ve always been a high impact exerciser. My recent foot injury has taught me it’s ok to slow down sometimes. What’s important is staying active and maintaining your fitness. Good luck to you!

  2. You are a fantastic pregnant fit role model!! And so cute in that picture with the husband!!!! Keep up the terrific work.

  3. I love that you are still working out hard while being pregnant! I hope one day I can do the same. It would be great to hear your insight on what types of things you have had to change in your workouts and other things the non pregnant sort might not know! It would be helpful for the future 😉

    1. If you look at the bottom of this post, I link to previous posts where I talk about all of the exercise modifications I’ve had to make and in what week of pregnancy! 🙂

  4. I just found your blog on blog lovin today 🙂
    I love the workout where you can use your partners strength’s (or your own), such a good idea and a way of using teamwork to get the ‘job’ done 🙂

  5. My husband and I just started crossfit a couple of months ago and we are really enjoying it. It has been a while since I was in shape so it has been a rough beginning but I am improving. We are currently trying to become pregnant and I was wanting to know more about crossfit during pregnancy. I have had one MD say she doesn’t recommend any crossfit during pregnancy. Are there some sources I could look in to to make my decision?

    1. It depends on the doctor, but most are okay with women continuing their current fitness routine while pregnant. I think crossfitmom.com has some good info about CrossFit and pregnancy. Hope this helps!
