Now, I probably won’t log every single work out I do – unless you want me to, of course! Periodically, I will update you on a WOD so you can get an idea of what kind of Crossfit activities I am participating in and how I modify a workout so I can participate with my class.
As I mentioned in a previous post, my gym writes all of their own workouts. Typically, I take a look at the WOD and make minor adjusts so that I can participate with the rest of my class. If major changes are needed on the workout for me to participate, I then just opt to a workout posted on Crossfit Moms and workout by myself that day.
Since my body is consuming calories like crazy, I have to eat first thing in the morning and before my WOD in order to even have the energy to stand, let alone make it through a workout. Pre-WOD I juiced some carrots, celery, cucumbers and an orange (about 20 ounces worth). It was fairly tasty, though I’m not a huge fan of the juiced veggies but it’s the quickest way for me to get them down. Especially, the veggies I don’t like (carrots)! Post-WOD I had two hard-boiled eggs and a chocolate whey protein drink made with almond milk and a banana. My whey protein of choice currently, is Stronger, Faster, Healthier’s Daily Balance. I used to drink their Recovery protein after a workout but this one is a little too intense while pregnant. I won’t bore you any longer with what I ate today but you can follow me on Instagram (@AshleyCline) for more food updates.
Today’s Pregnancy WOD
3 rounds for 30seconds/30seconds
“Quick Feet” – stepping up and down quickly on a 65 pound plate, this was me modifying “Double Unders”
3 rounds of 5 reps: 35lbs – I took it NICE AND EASY. The rest of the class did 60-80% of their 1RM.
6 rounds of 1 rep: 45lbs – Still keeping it very light. The rest of the class did 90% of their 1RM.
5 jump squats between each of the 6 rounds – I took it easy on my jumps but still participated
10 Minutes AMRAP
8 Step ups with an 18″ box – rest of the class did box jumps
9 KTE (knees to elbow)
10 Push ups – rest of the class did hand release push ups
I was able to do 6.3 rounds in the 10 minutes while maintaining a comfortable heart rate.
Not too intense of a work out today but I still feel accomplished! Here are some glamor shots of me deadlifting.
