While the exercises aren’t new, the term is being passed around frequestly as people boast about the intensity of their workout routine. If you’d like to try a corss fit workout you can either go to a specific training studio that caters to that type of workout OR you can come here and we will give them to you for free 🙂 We are starting out with a basic cross fit routine.

Cross Fit Workout 1
50 Squats* cardio boost for extra weight loss results. Pick an exercise such as jumping rope, running, jumping jacks, stairs etc. and add 1-2 minutes at the end of the routine.REST- Rest periods should not exceed 5 minutes. Our golden rule is not longer then 2. Once your done resting, repeat the routine several more times (see the difficulty levels below)
*Can’t do a push up??? Try doing the push ups on your knees or a wall to start.
* Pull -up alterations – If you’re at the gym they have many machines that help you do pull ups. However, if you are at home you can use a band. Here is a video that uses bands to help you do pull ups. You will need a pull up bar.

It’s up to you whether you use weights on the squats or not. My recommendation would be to do this full routine once. Then you will have a good idea of how difficult it is for you. If it is too easy, alter the workout.
EASY: 2-3 rounds (no weight)
MODERATE: 3-4 rounds (some weights)
HARD: 4-5 rounds (everything is hard, kill me into shape)
This is a basic routine. We will be posting more difficult exercises as time goes on. If you know someone who has been dying to try a cross fit routine, send them these fitness tips.
