CrossFit Fave

crossfitToday’s workout was one of my Crossfit faves.  It’s quick workout in which you’ll burn tons of calories in a short period of time.  I finished it off with my Ab Pyramid workout and some stretching. It goes as follows:

  • Row 1000 meters
  • 21 Thrusters
  • 21 Wide-grip pull-ups
  • Row 750 meters
  • 15 Thrusters
  • 15 Wide-grip pull-ups
  • Row 500 meters
  • 9 Thrusters
  • 9 Wide-grip pull-ups

If you don’t have a rowing machine available you can run on the treadmill or outdoors instead.  If you can’t do pull-ups on your own you can use an assisted pull-up machine or choose another exercise that will work the large muscles of your back (lats, traps and rhomboids). When doing the thrusters just select a weight that is heavy enough for you to complete the required amount of reps.  For example, when doing the 21 thrusters, select a weight so that you can just make 21.  If you can do 30, it’s too light.  If you can only do 15, it’s too heavy.  You’ll find the right weight through trial and error.

Have a great Easter weekend everyone 🙂
