After feeling poorly for what felt like ages…well only a week.
I am back to life and back to training.
Today I tackled deadlifts for strength.A few things have changed for me though.
I have gained a little more weight since before I went to Thailand and grown a bit more to my bump. My baby is moving a lot more and I just don’t feel able to lift heavy weights right now. I guess what I am trying to say is that my pregnancy is starting to slow me down again.
Previously I found 65kg no problem for me to deadlift.
Today 60Kg was a challenge.
I completed 3 working sets 2×5 and 1×5+
I wont be pushing myself to hard from now on.
My third tri-mester is starting and rest and other things become priority.
For the WOD today I was sill incorporating some strength in the form of push ups and ring dips.
5 Rounds of
60 sec Max Ring Dips – 60 sec rest
60 sec Max Push ups – 60 sec rest (I did my push ups with my hands on a box as before)
This is a 20 minute WOD that quickly becomes challenging if ring dips or push ups are not your strong point.
For once the Push ups were my strongest move!
A nice teaser back into the swing of things.
With no holidays left just work and preparation we shall see how far I can continue with training and what else may need scaling?
