Cross Fit Butt Kick

I have been working out quite a bit at the cross fit gym.  Luckily I have a couple awesome friends who know their Cross Fit and they help the rest of us stay in line!  I modify all of the workouts so that they are more pregnancy friendly.  And even with modifications I am getting one heck of a workout!!

Here are a few of the workouts we've done there lately:

7 minutes.  Sets of 3-6-9-12-15...
Squat Thrust

7 sets of:
9 dead lifts
12 push ups
15 box jumps

3 rounds of:
20 medicine ball cleans
15 knees to elbows

I do LIGHT weights {sometimes as light as a PVC pipe}.  I don't do deep squats or lunges.  I use lights medicine balls.  I do assisted pull ups and did those instead of the knees to elbows.  Its hard to be the slow wimpy one in the group!  The girls are ALL very encouraging though and help me keep perspective.  Oh my goodness I am going to miss these rock star women!!

This cross fit gym is AWESOME!  They are a lot more accommodating of our kids.  They let them play on the mats and the two ropes while we work out.  They are right close to where we are so we can keep an eye on them and keep them out of trouble.  There are rarely soldiers working out when we are there but I have to admit that I LOVE it when there is a group of them working out {usually combatives} while we are there.  Their energy is INFECTIOUS!!!
