For those of you that are new, this will start the second week of programming workouts for BirthFIT. I wanted to touch on a few things. When approaching these workouts, all that matters is how you feel that day. It doesn’t matter if you were a CrossFit Games competitor the year prior or a Boston Marathon record holder. Check in with yourself to see how you feel on each particular day. If you are an advanced athlete in your 37th week of pregnancy, you may want to think about doing the intermediate or beginner workout or decreasing the weight even more. If you are a beginner athlete and due any day, you may just want to do half of the rounds or half of the time for an AMRAP. Those are all completely normal and acceptable. What is normal for you may not be normal for the woman working out next to you and vice versa. Use these workouts as your pregnancy programming or a framework from which to design your own workouts with substitutions. Whatever you do, just move and have fun:)
