MONDAY SHIFT 08/12/2019
30 Seconds Min Jog, Taps, Row, Bike
3 Ring/TRX or Upright Rows
6 Push Ups
Score: Total Time
Goal: Under 15 Min
For the first part - the 30 second part - you can choose between Jogging, Taps, Row, or Bike! Just find a pace that you can move with for the entire 30 seconds.
Then you will complete 3 Rows, 6 Push Ups, 9 Squats.
No weight needed today!
For the rows you may do ring/trx/paralette rows. Remember the more parallel to the ground you are - the more difficult these become. Since it's only 3 in this workout feel free to make them more difficult than you normally do! If you don't have any of those as options you will do an upright row with a kettlebell, dumbbell, or even a pair of light dumbbells. You will hold the weight at your waist, keep the shoulders pulled back, and pull the elbows high and outside to pull the weight up your body - like you are zipping up your jacket.
For the push ups - you will do knee or elevated push ups.
Make sure on your push ups that you touch your chest and thighs at the bottom. Keep the elbows in with the hands just outside shoulder width next to the chest. Belly tight - no sagging, snaking, or butt up in the air. Press all of the way to lock out at the top.
For the squats you won't be using any weight. Feet are roughly shoulder width apart. Reach the butt back and down with the heels down. Drive the knees out. Keep the belly tight and chest lifted. Get the butt lower than the knees at the bottom. No plopping or rounding. Drive through the heels, drive the knees out, and lead with the chest to stand all of the way up at the top!
If you need to use a slightly higher target due to pain or range of motion issues -that is ok. Really focus on keeping your heels down and chest up.
RUN/JOG - To avoid the added pressure to the pelvic floor that the impact from running can create, sub: Taps, SU, Row, Bike, Farmer Carry, Sled Push/Drag, Quick Step Ups.
If you're postpartum and working towards rehab-ing your core and pelvic floor you can choose from the same subs for pregnancy and/or scaling the distance that you run so that you can focus on your posture, breathing mechanics, and managing the pressure of your or and pelvic floor.
THRUSTERS - To focus on managing proper posture, breathing mechanics, core pressurization, and/or joint stability sub: Dumbbells instead of the barbell, Less wieght, Box/Target/Supported Sqaut + Press, or Air Squats
PULL UPS - For managing the pressure of the core and pelvic floor during Early Pregnancy or later on in the Rebuilding stages of PP sub: strict pull ups or banded pull ups. To avoid any coning in the belly during 2nd/3rd Trimester or Rehab stage of PP, while hanging from the bar sub: Ring Rows, Bent Over Rows, Banded Lat Pull Downs, BIRTHFIT Banded Woodchop, Banded Lat Pull Downs, DB/KB Front Raises. Kipping Pull Ups should only be added back into the later stages of Rebuilding in PP once the rehab is complete and athlete shows proficiency in strict movements.
