During this pregnancy, I intend to keep lifting heavy and incorporating CrossFit into my training. Hope you enjoy this third trimester 20 minute EMOM workout!
Interestingly, the last workout I shared with you was also a 20 minute EMOM (every minute on the minute). I am in love with EMOM’s lately as they hold me accountable with timing while offering a brief rest break.
I did this workout at 32 weeks pregnant, and it was a spicy one!
20 minute EMOM
Set your timer (<—affiliate link) for 20 x 1:00 minute intervals.
- On the EVEN minutes, complete (20) kettlebell swings 35#
- On the ODD minutes, complete (3) squat clean thrusters 65#
Here is a video showing both movements of the workout.
However fast you finish the movements, is the amount of rest you get before the timer goes off again. The kettlebell swings got my heart rate up, and I only had around 15-20 seconds before that darn “beep”! But, I was able get through the thrusters fast enough for more than a 30 second recovery.
If you need to increase the intensity, my suggestions would be to use heavier weights for both movements, or try 5 reps of squat clean thrusters, instead of 3.
My Coach Cooper
When I do my early, early morning workouts, Cooper always joins me. I know he’d rather snuggle in our bed, but he dutifully follows me to the garage. You see him on a yoga mat for many of my workout videos!
He knows he can always catch some Zzzzzzz’s later, and occasionally I do too!
We both need our sleep to keep up with this ball of energy!
What’s on tap for your Halloween weekend?
