Will things become more difficult as you enter your third trimester? How can I stay active and perky during pregnancy using modified WODs and C2P workouts so I’m not limited in what I can do? What can we eat to continue to build muscle and lose fat while also getting fit based on our baby’s needs for nutrients from mommy?
We put together a list of the most popular questions from this week’s WOD Nation class via email, Facebook messages, and over message boards. Here they are:
When is the best time to tell my CrossFit coach that I am pregnant? Is there a grace period before having to come clean or do I have to tell him/her immediately following an announcement? Any tips on how best to approach telling him/her about your pregnancy responsibilities (school, job, child care) vs activities outside of CrossFit. – Cheryl R.
Cheryl, great question! So everyone has their own preference when it comes to telling their coach. It does depend on their “handling” factor—i.e., some people keep it quiet all together whereas others often feel pressured into revealing personal information as soon as possible after finding out about the pregnancy—whether it be just one month or six weeks later! Before going with your individual plan for how you will inform him or her about being pregnant around a competition season though lets first go over what you need to know first
How To Eat In Between Heats Crossfit Competition?
The best way to eat between workouts at a Crossfit Competition is to bring some quick snacks with you. Some good old rolled oats are perfect for this role. They are one of the most convenient fast food options for athletes, as they are ready in three minutes, literally. You can also use flaked fish or chicken that has been cooked beforehand and stored well in your refrigerator overnight. The thing about these foods is that they can give you an easy energy boost but will not affect your performance the following day because the high quality proteins contained within it will help slow down muscle breakdown during recovery periods. This type of food works especially well if you come across a competition on Saturday where you don’t want to risk having low blood sugar levels or cramping up before test day on Sunday! To get this amount of food into your refrigerator, just put one sealed container of ground turkey, chicken breast half block no bone visible, 3 TBSP canned tuna (no added sugars), 3/4 cup raw unsalted pistachios (salted or unsalted!) and 1 32oz box rice cakes (or any other kind). Seal everything inside a smaller Ziploc bag and seal tightly! Then freeze them until needed after test day. Added bonus: these go great with avocado toast!

CrossFit Banned This Popular Nike Training Shoe
” If you want to use an active shoe with the Nike Free RN Flyknit, since the Nike Free RN is now banned, you can’t. It was announced that the Nike Free RN Flyknit will be discontinued by March 31st of this year. Nike warns its fans about buying or wearing these shoes on their site. They say “Due to quality issues” they are not able to keep product in stock so shopping online for them is out of question currently. The official announcement doesn’t give more details about why they are no longer manufactured but I would assume it has something to do with the production of the Nike Spark FlyKnits which are also confirmed as being discontinued at some point too (see below). The NSF website states: To ensure your safety during our transition away from products including this model, we will continue sell remaining inventory of men’s and youth specific colorways through February 28th 2018 on nike.com/sale .
