A1. Strict Pullups @ 31X1, 4 x AMRAP(-1), rest 90sec (red skinny band)
As soon as I did the first strict pull-up my entire core/ab area completely clenched up and did not feel good on my preggo belly. Modified this so I was doing pull-ups starting from the top of the bar, going down for the three count, pausing at the bottom then going up as fast as I could while using the red skinny band, which gave me no issue.
A2. Dips @ 31X1, 4 x AMRAP(-1), rest 90sec
B. EZ Bar Biceps Curls @ 31X1, 3 x 4-5, rest 90sec
1. EZ bar + 10#, 5 reps
2. EZ bar + 20#, 4 reps
3. EZ bar + 20#, 4 reps
Felt like such a gym bro while I did these. It actually got surprisingly heavy, very quickly.

Jump Rope Singles
16:20. Hardest I’ve pushed in a while, even more so than my last preggo group class. Felt so awesome to feel a little sweaty and get my heart pumping a bit more again (though not ridiculously/scary more)! Probably went about 80-85% for this. Kept all KB swings unbroken and wanted to do the same for the jump rope, but I fucked up halfway through my first set of 20. Otherwise, all good. The AD was pretty killer, but I tried my best to keep a balance on the AD by using it as a little bit of a break while also still chipping away at the cals as best as I could.
