If this wasn’t proof that the second trimester sees the return of your energy level then I dunno what is!!!!
I had a rather tasty looking WOD lined up for tonight’s classes. I needed to run through first though, to make sure how long it would take and what weights to use.
But rocking up to the morning class I really liked the look of Steve’s program I was teaching at 7.30!
Why not do them both I thought.
Not only am I full of energy but I am really enjoying the strength programming that we are running at Crossfit London. If I can keep my strength up through my pregnancy maybe running around and picking up a baby wont be such hard work! Is that wishful thinking?
Squats for strength.
Warming up with the bar and two more sets adding some
Working sets were 2×5 and 1×5+
This felt hard today! I think I am just going to be quite up and down throughout the next 5 months. At least I am still getting it done.
Met con for this morning was as follows….
8 Handstand Push ups
12 Knees to elbow/Toes to bar
16 Kb Swings
5 rounds Please!
Knees to elbow have always been a challenge for my and today was no exception!
I got this done in 14 minutes and used a 16kg Kettlebell. Love it!
I went home and caught up with a bit of work at home before heading back to the gym for a PT session.
It was then that the second WOD came in.
Finishing the PT session off I contemplated the weight to use.
The WOD was a mix of cleans and push ups with a prescribed weight of 40kg for women.
Keeping the my baby in mind I was not about to follow the prescribed weight.
I decided on 35Kg, loading it in such a way that I could easily take off 5kg if needed.
I needn’t have worried the weight was just right.
And now for the WOD
15 Hang power cleans 30 Push ups
12 HPC 24 Push ups
9 HPC 18 Push ups
6 HPC 12 Push ups
3 HPC 6 Push ups
I got through this in 8 minutes and 45 seconds Whoop Whoop.
