3/5 Workout

My workouts have been pretty sporadic these past couple days. That is why I have not been posting. Here is my short workout I did today. Very simple but my shoulders were shaking at the end.

All done with 26 pounder kettlebells

Suitcase Deadlift 12 x 3
KB Push Ups 10 x 3 (barely made it to 10)
Snatches 10 on each side x 3 (feeling the forearms swell)

Rest and repeated 3 times. Pretty tired after that but I managed to get through this next sequence. Baby started crying towards the end so I did not get a chance to do more.

Squat and Press 5 on each side x 3
Swings 20 x 3

Now I can empathize with my clients about how the forearms get a bit tender. I guess I am just not use to having the kettlebell rest on my arm like that. I remember I built up a little tolerance several years ago. So I guess I have to do that again. Even though I felt my form was better than average. I do feel stronger. I can now use the 12kg with most of the exercises which feels good!

My weight has been bouncing between 116-118 depending on if I just breastfed or how much water I have in my body.

There you go Lauren. Training doesn't need to be complicated or fancy as you know. The basics are the best.

Sounds like you are getting back your body!

Lauren, What was your pre-pregnacy weight ? And what is your goal weight?

Your workouts look great, a great base. I used to throw 20 min. swing WO's w/8kg transfers, 1 min. on 1 min. rest (40 reps), in my kitchen between doing dishes! My cats thought I was crazy!

My pre-pregnancy weight was mostly around 112-115. I also had more muscle then too. I would say my goal weight is around 112. But I am more in to looking lean and being strong then what the scale says. We all know that muscle weighs more than fat. So if I gain more muscle back this time and stay in a slghtly higher weight category, I will still be content!

Your kitchen workout sounds fun! You should film that sometime.
