Why not try mixing it up

So i absolutely LOVE it when people tell me they are actually reading my blog and a friend of mine has asked if i will start posting some more cross fit style workouts that i do...some will be easy to do with out a gym others not so much HOWEVER i will try and give at home variations so you have no excuses not to do it!

So this morning as per usual i went to the gym at 6am, i sat down in the coffee area as we do most mornings awaiting our early morning death sentence...we entered the gym to see the WHITE BOARD...yes it is a moveable board which the instructors write exercises on which means you work on it at your own pace but you have to do a certain number rather than doing circuits where you have a set time. So im trying to remember what we did today and it went a little something like this

(warm up for 5-10 minutes before the class starts)

50 dead man press ups (go all the way down and take your hands off the floor, takes a while to master the technique)
0.25 mile sprint
50 plate lunges (hold a weight above your head and alternate lunges - 25 on each leg)
0.25 mile sprint
50 burpees
20 chin ups (if you can not do chin ups at home what i want you to do is hold a dumbbell in each hand above your head, arms straight...then simple jump as high as you can :)  )
1 mile run
100 crunches
100 squats

try this and tell me how you felt...this is how i felt...


It was such a good workout and something you can easily do at home...however i love the buzz of doing it in a group so why not get some people together and have some cross fit fun :)

Lots of hardwork and dedication :)

(just for the record i did not make this workout up! Compliments to JAN the gym instructor for putting this workout together...so if you do it and love it be sure to pop in to zest(if you live near by that is) and thank him for an awesome workout)
