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.
Tuesday: 6 hours of walking around Savannah
Wednesday: CrossFit (drop-in at CrossFit Steadfast)
Friday’s WOD was short and sweet:
I used 75 pounds for the Deadlifts and Front Squats and finished in 5:05.
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.
