Today, I want to share a home prenatal workout that can be safely done in the second trimester. I’m 6 months pregnant or in my 26th week of pregnancy. Importantly, ANYONE can do this workout–just adjust your intensity!
A CrossFit update.
You know how much I love it, but I put my CrossFit Omaha membership on hold until after the baby. I had to modify the WOD’s a great deal and was having a tough time telling myself to “ease up” in a group environment! Additionally, because I teach and train, I have access to a gym.
As I mentioned before, CrossFitMom.com is a fantastic resource for women considering getting pregnant, currently pregnant or postpartum that want to scale WOD’s accordingly.
Let’s get started! Here’s a 6 month belly shot for extra motivation. Ha!
This WOD is a 20 minute AMRAP which means in 20 minutes you try to get in as many rounds as possible.
- 30 air squats
- 20 modified push-ups
- 15 dead lifts (I’m using a 50 lbs. kettlebell)
- 10 half burpees
Keep going until your 20 minutes have expired. For those of you without a belly, feel free to sub full push-ups for modified and full burpees for half burpees.
Let’s talk gear:
First of all, I’m in love with the print! These are slim-fit and noticeably smaller than my Chase capris, so I wasn’t sure I could get them on (especially now!). But, they fit fantastic and feel so supportive–like everything is “held into place” if you know what I mean!
Made with PlayDry material, so they are moisture wicking and in a dark shade of grey that hides sweat. The waistband sits low and is wide-also flattering.
Do you own bold or neutral workout gear?
