Strength & Conditioning.
Today’s strength and conditioning blends together. The actual strength portion for today does not and should not have a timer. If you must have a timer, then set a 20-30 minute clock just to do work in that amount of time. When you are feeling a bit recharged, then you will start the longer mono-structural training. This can be anything that you feel like doing. I even had a mom, that was not allowed to exercise any more, use her physio ball for 20 minutes just to move her hips. If you have an idea that is not listed, then please do not hesitate to ask me:)
3 Rounds
12 Double KB Swings (Medium to Heavy)
24 Double KB Walking Lunges (Each Lunge Counts)
-Rest as needed-

Today is the mono-structural day. Pick a movement such as walking, running, rowing, swimming, or pulling a sled. Put on a meditation, good music, or The BIRTHFIT Podcast and just move at 70% for an extended period of time. Do not hesitate to ask me about a walking sled pull.
1 Mile Sled Pull
30 Min Run
5K Row
45 Min Walk

    Im a little behind on my workouts because I did a ton of walking this weekend.I used 26lb kbs gor the double kb swings and 13lb kbs for the lunges. Then a 26lb kn gor the single leg deadlifts. For the conditioning I rowed 5k to give my feet a break. They swelled and hurt all weekend from walking. Overall a good workout.

      That’s okay mama! 26lbs for those single leg deadlifts are no joke! Try to put your feet up on a wall! :)
