So I’m writing this post from my phone this morning. I’m actually on location at a film shoot! I caught wind of an underground, low-budget zombie flick being filmed in a neighbouring town and they were looking for a few more people to be extras. Since being in a movie is on my bucket list and dressing up like a zombie is super fun, I figured I’d volunteer! I’m currently waiting for makeup to be done and then shooting this afternoon. I will share some pictures and the experience in another post! In the meantime, follow me on Instagram (@thebexfactor)and I will post some pictures of the day there.
Workouts are so hit or miss lately. I missed Monday’s class to play chauffeur for my parents.
Tuesday was the first class in a new round of yoga. It will probably be my last class of mom and baby yoga which is sad. I might have to switch to one for tots now that Liam is moving around so much. Seriously, where did my baby go? Tuesday evening I went to Crossfit.
Box Squat – 75% 4×5 – I rolled with 85#.
- 5 Deadlifts @ 65% 1RM – I think I used the same bar as my box squats
- 15 KB swings – I rolled with 16kg
- 200m run
I finished in 13:04.
Afterwards Melea had us do 150 Russian Twists with a minimum 12kg kettlebell (I cheated and used an 8, haha).
Wednesday I made an effort to go to the morning class to make up for Monday.
Power Snatch – 80% 3×5 – I just used an open bar to work on technique. Since it was busy and I was worried about Liam, I didn’t want to be lifting heavy.
Each min on the min:
- 10 Thrusters @ 30% of
your Front Squat
I used a 35# open bar which was more than my 30% front squat. I got 135 reps, so 13 minutes. It was BRUTAL! It was super hot in the box and I was just dripping sweat.
I was definitely feeling the workout by the end of the day and Thursday was even worse. I didn’t make it to class Thursday night as my mom was in town and we went for dinner. Which was kind of ok because there was a whole bunch of squats. No thanks, my butt is screaming enough! However, I bought a speed rope some maybe one day this weekend I can test it out and do this workout on my own.
I gotta go eat some brains now!!
