A fit Pregnancy looks different for everybody. Some women have self-control. They have these teeny cute baby bumps, and gain 12 pounds their entire pregnancy, and some women are so hungry they will eat anything and everything they can get their hands on. They deliver a 5 pound baby, wonder where the other 40 pounds of baby weight came from, and then quickly remember all the donuts they couldn’t say no to. Consider me in the latter group.
Okay, back to this fit pregnancy business. Despite eating ridiculous amounts of waffles, CrossFit has been something that I’ve been able to consistently do during this pregnancy. It was a welcome relief to morning sickness, an energy booster, and continues to be my outlet for “me” time.
This week we’ve got another great workout that anybody can do (pregnant or not). If you are expecting be sure to check out the modification section below!
- 60 Squats
- 50 Mountain Climbers
- 40 Step ups or box jumps
- 30 Lunges
- 20 Lateral Jumps
- 10 push ups
- Keep track of your time using a watch or a Timer. (We frequently use the MYWOD app and recommend it to our readers. You can keep track of your workouts, they’ve got How To videos, and of course the app has great timers.) Set your timer to go off every minute, so you know when to begin your next set of jumps.
- Plyometric Box: You can always use a retaining wall or stable stool.
- Be sure to modify this at home workout to your ability level. If you’re just starting your fitness routine, you may want to cut the repetitions in half. If you’re expecting and need to make room for that cute baby bump of yours do elevated mountain climbers and push ups to a box or chair.
At the start of the timer, begin with 60 air squats, then move on to 50 Mountain Climbers (elevated if you’re expecting), then 40 box jumps or step ups, then 30 lunges, then complete 20 lateral jumps (you can jump over any small object here or even back and forth over a line in the concrete), and finish up with 10 push-ups.
