Catchy title isn’t it? Not really, I know. I’m not feeling overly creative and it pretty much sums up the workout.
Yesterday I hit the gym for the 3rd time this week. Not only does it feel great to sweat again and have sore muscles, but it’s also nice to get away and have some alone time. As much as I love hanging out with Brooke, getting away for even just an hour gives me some time to regroup-just me, myself, and I.
Anyway, yesterday’s workout was a good one. I was thinking about doing an all leg workout but was feeling lazy in a way so I decided on a simple, CrossFit inspired workout I found on Pinterest. I changed a few things around because I’m not quite ready for an actual CrossFit workout. Here’s the original workout:
5, 10, 15, 20 Workout (from Fit Foodie Finds)
Pushups– So I did 5 box jumps instead
Box Jumps– 10 pushups for me. I tried as many as I could off my knees then dropped down when I needed to.
- 15 sit ups- I mixed these with crunches since I have zero ab muscles.
- 20 squats
The original workout says to repeat this 10 times. I repeated it 8 times and that was plenty for me! I was thinking I’d just do 5 rounds but I made it to 8.
I’m sore today! I feel it in my abs which is great since I really need to work on developing those muscles again.
This is a great workout because you could definitely do it at home. Instead of box jumps you could try jump squats. The next few days I’ll be without a car so no way to get to the gym so I’m in need of some home workouts. Any good ideas?
Have a great weekend! 🙂
I’ve suggested this so many times that I think Jillian should start paying me for free advertising, but I’m loving my Jillian Yoga Meltdown DVD (if you Google it, I think the whole thing is on YouTube). It gives me such an incredible workout for being yoga and I totally end up sweating all over my yoga mat.

I am going to do that next week! Thanks 4 the idea! 🙂
YAY! Love the changes you made in the workout. I also agree that 8 is plenty. I was with other people, so I probably would have stopped before 10 😉 Thanks for the shout out!
Bodyrock.tv has great ones you could modify also search zuzkalight or ZWOW n YouTube, she’s fantastic too 🙂
I actually sell home wokout DVD’s!
