Ok, today I tried the same WOD my hubbie did this morning… (Did I mention before he goes to a grown up CrossFit gym now, leaving me to workout alone)… Cue crocodile tears of self-pity 🙁
Back squats 10-8-6-4 reps
(Max weight 50kg)
(For those of you laughing at my squat weight, in my defence my core is still shot and I didn’t want to snap like a twig).
15 KB swings (12kg)
5 rounds for 10:53
(34 seconds faster than my husband).
Not that we’re competitive at all… BUT I BEAT HIM! (nah nah nah-nah nah)
Knees to chest (3 x 10)
Finished off with (attempted) knees to chest, hanging from the chin up bar. Total disaster. Severely limited by (1) Lame grip strength and (2) Lame core strength. Will have to work on that…
My main query after this workout (other than ‘why does it hurt so much?’) is:
When is it safe to return to abdominal/ core exercises post-Caesarean section?
