Today my friend Ashley and I went to check out something I’ve been wanting to try for a while…. CROSSFIT! We went over to Crossfit Crofton to meet the staff and get in a workout. If you’ve never heard of it, check out the CrossFit website. It’s basically a hard-core workout that includes many powerful forms of exercise, from running and powerlifting, to agility and yoga. It has been used to get fire-fighters, military, athletes and the like in shape for their sport or job. The owner, Garrett, was great and put us through a short, fun workout that had us sweating and cursing by the end. My favorite kind of workout!
Here’s what we did:
Rowing machine – 400 m
Shoulder warmup, hip opening stretches
3 x 10 bodyweight squats
2 x 10 warmup pushups
Main Set – Complete as many rounds in 12 minutes as possible!
6 bodyweight rows
Cool Down and Stretch
Fun? yes. Easy? NO!
I completed 11 rounds of these suckers and it was a great workout! I think we’ll be back soon to sign up for some sessions 🙂
Did you get your behind moving today? What’s you’re favorite workout??
Note: If you are not accustomed to exercise or have cardiovascular issues, Crossfit is not for you….yet. Exercise is a good idea, but exercising safely is more important. This is not a beginner’s gym. However, if you are generally healthy with no health risks and want a nice whipping of your behind, go for it!
