Crossfit Challenge Continued

Alright friends, here is week three of the crossfit challenge (a week late—sorry!). For those who may find this routine challenging due to physical limitations or because you are just starting a workout routine, try doing this routine with the modifications. If that is still difficult, try starting with walking 30 minutes a day 4 times a week. Adding a little physical activity is better than none at all. You can add resistance training by adding resistance bands to your workout. Don’t give up. Everyone’s limits are different. I love running, but I am not a particularly fast runner. I can improve my speed to a certain extent, but I will never reach the ability of a professional runner. All I can do is continue to make progress and compete against myself. My next set of exercises (once this crossfit set concludes) is going to focus on starting an exercise routine when you have physical limitations or are starting to exercise after being away from it for a while.

Day 15: 15 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 16: How many rounds in 10 minutes (keep going, taking breaks between sets if needed for 10 minutes): 5 push-ups, 10 sit-ups, 15 air squats

Day 17: 30 walking lunges, 50 jumping jacks (4 rounds)

Day 18:  Longer run (or whatever it is that you like to do–biking, swimming, etc) that lasts at least 30 minutes

Day 19: Rest day

Day 20: 15 vertical jumps (crouch down, then jump as high as you can, land and do it again), 10 push-ups (5 rounds)

Day 21: Run 1 mile, for time, followed by 100 jumping jacks and 20 sit-ups
