Weekly Workouts: 32 & 33 Weeks Pregnant


Weekly Workouts: 32 & 33 Weeks Pregnant

These last few weeks have been full of anxiety around the future, mindset work, and shifting energy. Now more than ever, I’m incredibly thankful for the time I can spend moving my body and connecting my breath. Sometimes that looks like a series of functional progressions and other times it looks like sled pulls and bike sprints. Both have been cathartic in this time of flux.

My workouts continue to slow in intensity due in part to a shifted schedule, but also my body is asking for more rest. This baby is growing and I’m uncomfortable from time to time, so my workouts reflect that change. Still I make time for movement each day, knowing that it doesn’t have to be the intense AMRAPs of early pregnancy.

Daily Movements

I incorporate my daily movements as part of my bed time routine, spending 15-25 minutes moving slowly and mindfully through this list of movements.
