THERE’S SOMETHING IN THE WATER!
With so many growing bellies (and new baby Covies being delivered) we are making a special effort to accommodate these amazing athletes by providing scales and modifications designed specifically for these changing bodies. Every day there will be a posted scale (or the coach will have them to share during class) for those Covies either expecting or postpartum. PLEASE KEEP IN MIND THAT EVERY WOMAN is different and there are no ‘universal scales’ for each phase of pregnancy or after-birth. Just like our non-expecting athletes, each of us is built differently and our job is to help you find what works best for YOU.
Coach Maria has done an amazing job furthering her education, running postpartum classes AND sharing her knowledge with all the coaches at the Cove. We never want someone to feel that they ‘can’t do the workout’ as prescribed and stop coming. A healthy mama makes a healthy baby so please continue to come and know we will have something appropriate AND exciting for you to do to keep your workouts as fresh as always! These scales will be a bit more extensive in terms of explanation in the Daily WOD and News posts as we want to provide as much context as possible. We are thrilled to announce these scales will now be posted as “P/PP” (Pregnant and Postpartum) along with our regular FX, Performance and Open tracks.
*increase weight each set
Every 4 minutes for 16 minutes:
400 M Run
15/12 Cal Assault bike
Coach’s Tip: Dropping the reps for the Deadlift but working up in weight. Just like yesterday, even though we are going heavy our focus is always on positions. The metcon is a cardio dream! Running, biking, and a little bit of gymnastics. We are looking to heave at least 30 seconds of time for max reps.
Speaking of new additions to the Cove family, welcome Ethan! Ashley and Dustin L. are proud parents to this cutie!
