Workout Roundup

I often get asked what I do for exercise. Here’s a recap of this past week. Not necessarily typical, but it’s what is was. Being mindful of a few tweaky parts (maybe it was all the years of gymnastics, or maybe it’s age), juggling family, work and listening to my body determines the flow of my exercise routine. I hope to post more of these workout roundups to give you a flavor of what I do.

My tip for this week:

Be conscious of MOVEMENT, not just exercise. I think we’ve become obsessed with the concept of “working out” and we downplay the benefit of the variety of movement that can take place within a day’s time.

NOTE: My CrossFit workouts take place at a CrossFit gym and I recommend that yours do to (at least until you are properly trained in such movements)!

CrossFit Park City

1) EMOM (Every Minute On the Minute):

1 Power Snatch (build in weight)… I worked up to 95 lbs.

Not a “PR” (personal record), but I was happy with this given my tweaky parts and a focus on form. This was a good warm up to part 2.

2) 15 • 12 • 9 (reps of…)

Power Snatch (75 lbs)

Chest to bar pull up

7:42 Rx

Deep tissue massage (quads, IT bands, shoulders and neck)

My body needed this. I often find it hard to justify a “massage” as it’s sounds like I’m pampering myself, but this was far from a feel good massage. It makes a huge difference in how I feel over the course of a month if I stay consistent with deep tissue work.

I traded in a day at the gym this morning for Halloween parades and parties at the boys’ schools. Well worth it.

Then it was time for a long walk with the pup on a beautiful Fall day!

CrossFit Park City


30, 1, 20, 1, 10, 1

The weights I chose: (135 lbs, 185, 155, 185, 165, 185)

This workout was a bit of a guessing game. While I played it a little safe, it was still a great workout and showed how deadlifts create such a strong neurological response. I have pretty good hamstring flexibility, so my focus is always on using my legs more and keeping my belly tight (especially after two big babies!).


Tuesday, November 3rd

CrossFit Park City


20 Minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) of…

5 pull ups

10 push ups

15 air squats

(16 rounds, 11 reps)

Not even close to a PR, but again, I felt good about this. Nice steady pace, a great workout, and able to recover quick and move on with my day.
