Sorry for the lateness of this post. I have a pretty good excuse though……………
Andrew took a video for me and kindly posted it on YouTube for me.
The 4th was a Saturday and meant I was jumping into one of Phil’s classes after finishing up with a Pt client.
Phil is also leaving Crossfit London but more permanently as he is heading back to Canada. He will be missed but we hope will keep in touch.
The work for today was a healthy dose of Front Squats as we are starting a new cycle we have switched from overhead to front.
It’s prob a mixture of tiredness and pregnancy but my strength feels like it is purposely limiting me, this is prob a good thing though.
We did 4 sets of 5 and while others were cleaning the bar into a rack as I got heavier I used the rack as I didn’t feel I wanted to clean a heavy weight near my bump.
The WOD for today was a body weight wod, an amrap of 15 minutes. We were chasing 10 rounds which Phil had got while he tested the workout.
It went like this
3 Pull ups
6 Ring Dips
I managed 12 rounds. I would like to add that I can’t wait to train when I have lost this baby weight for I am sure I will be flying through pull ups with no band !!
And now for the video.
I want to finish by adding that while some ladies kip through pregnancy I personally feel that it is too much on the joints in relationship to the relaxin hormone which by this point of pregnancy is at its highest level.
Pull ups with a band are fine but in my experience don’t allow yourself to strain through any reps. Use whatever band is needed and worry about them after your baby is born.
