Last night I was scheduled to coach the 6pm WOD but no one showed up. So I put together a quick and actually tough WOD to prep for a baby.
I did a 1 mile walk split into 400m laps and with rest in between.
Lap 1: With a friend’s baby😛
Lap 2: with a 20# med ball
Lap 3: No additional objects
Lap 4: 15# dumbbells
It took me almost an hour (with the rests between laps etc) to complete. Maybe 40min. And it was a good WOD! At 30 weeks pregnant it was all I really wanted to do.
We started with back squat but since I did some on Tuesday at 85# that wrecked me I decided to do 75#. We did 5×5. And that was enough😛
Then we did our main WOD that I had to modify a bit:
15 HSPU <– 15# dumbbell press
15 Goblet Squats <– 26# for 3/4 rounds. Did air squats on the last round
15 Pull ups <– Ring Rows
15 Wall balls <– 10# ball
I managed to get 4+15. Which was plenty! My lower back was really aching since a lot of the movements required you to use your lower back for positioning, stability, etc.
Working out is definitely getting tougher! I’m 30 weeks pregnant now and I definitely feel 30 weeks! I think October might be my last month really working out. November I will most likely need to just relax more. But we’ll see.
Last night I showed up and there were only 2 of us there for the 6pm WOD. So we joined a few others who are practicing for the Pensacola Beach Brawl and did 2 of their WODS:
50 Hang Snatch <– used empty barbell
40 Box jump overs <– Step overs for me
50 Pull ups <– Ring Rows
This WOD was done with a partner and we finished in roughly 5:35.
We rested about 10min and then did WOD 2:
500m Row <– 0.6m bike
15 Burpees over the sandbag <– did not touch chest / body to floor
100m Sandbag Run <– a light jog without a sandbag
This was done in a waterfall effect. I didn’t look at the time though when I finished to know exactly how long it took me. I know the bike took 1 min but everything else was much longer😛
I missed a WOD last Thursday 9/1/16 in here – my bad.
Started with a 12m EMOM of:
Sled pushes 100m <– 25# plate on it
HSPU <– Strict DB Press
Then we did a WOD:
10 Tire Flips <– did a medium/light tire
10 med ball squat cleans <– 20#
I have no idea what time I finished in since we were outside and no one was keeping track of time.
Last night we did 3 rep max OHS and I maxed out at 95#.
Then we did 4 RFT:
25 cal airdyne
10 HSPU <– seated DB press 20#
10 Cleans <– 75#
This took me 23:56. Just under 24 min! Mostly due to the biking. I wanted to cut down on the calories but it didn’t seem like an option so I just sucked it up.
Today we did three 5min WODs with 5 min rests in between.
10 Cal Airdyne
10 Hanging Knee Raises
7 cal Airdyne
15 KBS <– 24#
7 cal Airdyne
10 Thrusters <– 35#
Overall I’d get 2 – 3 rounds per 5 min WOD. I went a little too fast on the 2nd WOD and my HR was really high so WOD 3 I didn’t even get 2 rounds.
I think it’s time I went down to 2 WODs a week and coaching 2 times a week. I’m getting HUGE and I’m 2-3 weeks away from the 3rd Trimester. Life is about to get even tougher!
The WOD was supposed to only be 1 rep max of 2 different barbell complexes but really that wasn’t going to take much time for me nor give me much of a workout. Thankfully the WOD was updated to do the Crossfit Lite WOD and we made the barbell complex an EMOM:
1 Power Clean + 2 Front squats + 1 Split Jerk <– 95#
800m Run <– 1.2m on the airdyne
50 sit ups <– knee raises
1000m Row <– 1.2mi on the airdyne
50 sit ups <– knee raises
800m Run <– 1.2mi airdyne
I finished in about 19:02 and felt like I at least burned a few calories along the way.🙂
The weather has been thankfully a lot nicer than it has been but it was still rather hot by the evening.
I started with Back Squat 3 x 6 at 105#.
Then we did “Tiger Blood”:
3 rounds of:
10 Clean & Jerks 135 lbs <– 75#
400 m Runs <– 0.6mi airdyne
This took me about 10:54 and it made me dread the day when I am no longer pregnant and can run again😛 the jerks I know really affected the run since I could feel it when I got on the bike.
