I used to find training alone quite therapeutic.
My music blasting out.
But these days its a task to gee myself up.
This morning was no exception, it never helps that it’s a Monday morning to boot!
Any-who it was Front squats for strength today.
In the cage I went and followed a few warm up sets with first just the bar and then 2 sets adding weight.
I used the ball again for my depth guide and found a few light stretches inbetween sets nice on the joints though not holding the stretch for longer then 8 seconds.
It can be bad for a pregnant womens joints and ligaments to over stretch!
The WOD I was programming for tonight at Crossfit London was of my own making.
I wanted to work to moves that worked on moves that were poles apart and as I hadn’t had a Push Press in a WOD for a while it was an obvious starting point.
I wanted a challenging weight for the rep range of the Push press so prescribed weight for men is 42Kg and Women 30Kg.
A move which I love for many reasons, one being the way it works your heart rate into a frenzy with a high rep range is the Clean.
So there you have the WOD
The Push press and hang power clean.
When I tested this out I completed it in 7 minutes 40 seconds
Not bad for over 6 months pregnant!
