Location: Washington DC, Crossfit Affiliate
Trainer: Chris, as always
Photographer: Cameron, my hubby
Inchworms: Start standing. Touch your toes (or get as close as possible) then inch your hands forward as far as you can go. Then walk your feet in toward your hands. Repeat over and over.
Ring Rows: Hold onto the rings. Lean backward, keeping your body straight. Pull yourself upward using only your upper body.
Ring Pull-Aparts: Start in the same position as ring rows. Pull your arms apart. [This was my first time doing these. They are way more tough than they look!]
Pushups: I do regular “boy” pushups. I can’t go all the way to the ground though! The belly gets in the way.
Wall Squats A: Standing with your back against the wall, carefully squat, going a little further each time.
Wall Squats B: Standing facing the wall, carefully squat and keep your body as close to the wall as you can!
For three rounds…..
12 Spin-Arounds: Chris just made these up. Holding a weight plate, I sat on the box and had to use my core/lower body to spin around from one side to the other.
4 Prenatal Burpees: A single burpee consists of 1 pushup, 1 squat, 1 step-up (weighted) with left leg, and 1 step-up with right leg.
12 Dumbbell Curl + Press: Starting with the dumbbell at your side, curl it up to shoulder, then press it overhead. I did 6 per side.
Altogether, I took about 13 minutes to complete the Workout portion.
