I haven’t discussed much about workouts lately, but I have been getting them in. I have been going to Crossfit 5 days a week and am finally feeling more confident and not as lost around the box. This weekend also starts my journey to half-marathon number 3 in April.
This weeks workouts have been especially great, I even did my very first RX workout today! That never happens, I always have to scale back from what’s on the board! I attribute a week of good workouts to the fact that I have really been paying close attention to my nutrition. I had a couple of weeks there where I left every workout feeling really defeated. I knew that my diet definitely had something to do with it, so I recommitted to eat clean/Paleo, to make sure I am eating enough, and that I am getting enough dense carb sources to fuel my workouts. When you fuel your body right, it’s amazing what you can do with it!
Enough about my food journey though, what I really want to do is share a Crossfit style full body workout with you that you can get done at home in 30 minutes. This workout was inspired by a workout I did on Wednesday, which was fast, hard, and fun.
All you need for this workout is a timer, I use the Interval Timer app on my phone, you can preset your interval times so it beeps every time your minute is up. You will also need something to jump up on, a bench, a sturdy chair, a step, if you are uncomfortable doing box jumps, sub step-ups.
This full body workout is meant to be done super fast, and your goal is to fight your little heart out, and push yourself to get in as many reps of each exercise as you can.
Don’t have 30 minutes? Then cut back on the number of rounds. One round will take you 6 minutes, and that’s with rest. If all you have is 6 minutes for fitness, then utilize that 6 minutes wisely, dig deep, and get sweaty!!
Try the workout, tell me how many rounds and reps you got in!
