Happy Sunday, friends!
To be honest, I’ve been struggling a bit to find a good, CONSISTENT workout schedule between mom-ing, working, wife-ing, yoga training, the excuses could go on. While I’ve still been able to work out on my days home with Char (during her nap), the days that I go into the office, well that’s another story. Mom + wife guilt sets in an once I’m home, I just want to be present. And once she goes to bed, I’m ready to relax + spend time with my hubby if he’s home.
With that being said, I’ve decided I just have to get up and do it in the morning. If you know me, you know I’ve never been a morning person. However, since having Char, mornings don’t really bother me anymore, I actually kind of enjoy them. So, on the days that I go into the office, I will be getting up at 5:45 to get my workout in before she wakes up at 7. I went ahead and planned out my week of work outs to hopefully make this new schedule a little easier! I wanted to share it with you guys for 2 reasons: 1. By putting this out there, it will help to hold me accountable and 2. in case you’re looking for inspiration too! Feel free to screenshot it, save it + share it 🙂
I have my 5th weekend of yoga teacher training this upcoming weekend. We have long training days filled with tons of yoga so I did not incorporate any other workouts on those days. I will also be adding in at least one yoga class during the week and will do some at home as well.
If you’ve been following along for a bit then you know we have converted our garage into a home gym where we do CrossFit style workouts. Most of these workouts can be transitioned into a global gym as well. If you need help making modifications or have questions, just send me a DM on Instagram 🙂
So I know not everyone knows all the CrossFit lingo so I wanted to breakdown what AMRAP means since I have it on a couple workouts this week.
AMRAP stands for As many rounds and reps as possible. So, for Metcon #1 it’s AMRAP 12 minutes–as many rounds and reps as possible in 12 minutes of 24 hang power cleans and 24 wallballs. Once you’ve completed 24 of each movement, that’s one round. You continue those movements until the 12 minutes is up and your “score” is the total number of rounds you completed, plus any additional reps of a uncompleted round. Make sense? If you workout at an actual CrossFit gym, you will compare your scores with others in class which makes working out more fun bc who doesn’t love a good competition?
I hope this was helpful and I will keep you guys updated on stories with how the morning workouts are going!! Let me know if you guys like seeing my workout plan in advance and I can share it more often 🙂
