Workout Challenge: Week One

My friend introduced me to her friend who loves CrossFit. Her gym was running a challenge and she got points when other people came to the gym and attended a CrossFit class. It was free and sounded like fun so my husband and I gave it a try. The class we have been attending is not quite as hard core at CrossFit. It’s more a mix of CrossFit meets boot camp. It’s challenge and a lot of fun! We got rid of our gym membership to save money. We have been running and doing Insanity; therefore, this change in exercise left us feeling sore. It was wonderful. We went a few times and loved it. For the next 6 weeks we are going to be doing this CrossFit/Boot Camp and I am excited about it. I decided to share a toned down Crossfit Workout with you. I’ll be posting a 30-day CrossFit workout that you can do at home. I will post each new week on Wednesday (sorry I am a day late….I thought I hit post yesterday, but I only saved it). Feel free to print it out and give it a try. I will let you know how our CrossFit workouts are going too! Happy exercising!

Day 1: 20 walking lunges, 10 push-ups, 25 jumping jacks (4 rounds)

Day 2: 10 burpees (you can modify these by going down onto your knees and putting your legs out slower if needed), 1 minute plank, 1 minute side plank (both sides) (3 rounds)

Day 3: 25 air squats, 10 sit-ups, (4 rounds)

Day 4: Longer run (or whatever it is that you like to do–biking, swimming, etc) that lasts at least 30 minutes)

Day 5: Rest Day

Day 6: Ten vertical jumps (crouch down, then jump as high as you can, land and do it again), 10 push-ups (5 rounds)

Day 7: Run 1 mile, for time, followed by 100 jumping jacks

Don’t forget about the burpee challenge! Today is 18….you can do it! I did 35 in class tonight. Tomorrow is 20.
