Today’s workout was inspired by a Cross-Fit from a couple days ago. The original Cross-Fit was this:
5 rounds for time:
- Run 1/4 mile
- 30 box jumps
- 30 wall balls
This sounded like a great plan until I realized that that was a lot of box jumps! Since my legs were already sore from yesterday’s run, I decided to scale down to three rounds. 90 box jumps and wall balls were good enough!
The full set would have been a great workout if I wasn’t training for a marathon. I just don’t want to push my legs too hard right now since I sort of need them :).
After the Cross Fit inspired workout, I did a couple ab exercises.
- Side Plank– 3 sets of 30 seconds each.
- Bicycle Crunches– 3 sets of 15.
- Low Ab Crunches- 3 sets of 10.
It was definitely a challenging workout even at three rounds! Those jumps become extremely exhausting. Definitely a calorie torching workout.
I hope you all had a great Tuesday. My friend got into town today so we had a great night tonight. It’s going to be a fun week! I feel like it’s already the weekend! 🙂
