I’ve been neglecting my CrossFit workouts…oh well. Yesterday was really hot out and I knew Clementine wouldn’t want to go for a run with me, so I made up a quick circuit workout! My neighbors probably think I’m so weird working out outside, but it was too nice out to be inside.
This workout it awesome because it’s pretty quick, each exercise is only a minute long so you don’t get bored! You can do anything for a minute! It’s also great full body workout if you don’t have any equipment or a gym, all you need is about 6 feet of space! You can even just pretend to jumprope if you don’t have one handy. I just used the timer on my phone.
You can really do these exercises in any order, but I like to do them in the order they are written because it really works each muscle group effectively. The donkey kicks really burn! Fire hydrants are just side donkey kicks, like a dog peeing…you get the point. I’ll definitely be trying this workout again. It’s quick and I can do it anywhere!
What is your favorite “no-gym” workout?
Sorry, another arm workout, but I’m trying to get my arms toned for my sister’s wedding!!!!! I’m so excited! I can’t even contain it! So this seems like a pretty boring workout, but it’s so painful that it can’t be boring. Sounds awesome, right?! Haha well I thought it was. Best part is you can do this anywhere! You just need 100 feet of space for the running portion. You can do it right out in your yard and run down the driveway, at a park, at a large gym, around a track, in the woods…ya get the picture. So lace up and let’s go!
There is a 20 minute time cap, try to Make sure you pace yourself. Don’t go all out right from the beginning and do all the push-ups you can in your first round. Do a smaller number so that your arms aren’t completely spent right from the beginning. This is a HUGE number of push-ups, make sure you work up to it. Do this workout with 75 push-ups, really listen to your body.
Correct Way To Do a Push-Up:
Push-ups are actually a great whole body exercise. They should be working your abs and back if you are doing them correctly. When you are doing the push-ups try to keep your elbows in close not poking too far out to the side. Also, keep your body straight, don’t sag in your back! Hand should be pointed forward with your fingers slightly spread. Do not keep the weight in the back of your hands.
Good Luck! I just barely finished the 200 in 20 minutes. I had about half a second to spare. Get those arms workin!
