Crossfit Workouts

Postby 48highlander » Tue Mar 04, 2008 9:07 pm

So just wondering after recovering from doing the Filthy 50's today for unit PT, anyone here who is a crossfiter have favourite/dreaded workouts, and what their scores times/are. Today 34:34, which I think is not bad for a first time doing that particular exercise. (and then a 6 mile run right after :))

I have this crazy leg workout that I do and have given to some of the pro athletes I used to train. I call it "Super Legs"....
20 squats
20 lunges (10 with each leg)
20 jump squats
20 split squat jumps (lunge position, jump up, change legs in the air, land, repeat)
all done in 90 seconds....
You can also add a med ball if you'd like once it starts to get easy. This is a workout I used to throw in to the routine maybe 1-2 times every 2 weeks to change things up.
Troop #3....starting April 21st. Finally!!!!!!!!

I do almost that identical, but use a BOSU in each exercise :thumbsup:

I started doing CrossFit about three weeks ago...WOW! I am so happy that I've finally found something that I can mostly do at home, and something that provides motivation to keep going. HUGE fan thus far!

Well I did a version of that the other day, or last week or something. The workouts are very hard, and I sometimes have to scale back the weight or do some substitutions, but before starting CrossFit, I haven't been able to get motivated for a workout. Just seeing the comments on the website, and the videos is inspiring. Plus, wanting to get better and improve my own fitness has helped motivate me as well. I like the balance the program offers.

At this time of night, I find myself sitting on crossfit.com refreshing the page over and over again to see tomorrow's workout!

This is my new favourite workout (third time doing it) I call it "total body anihilators" (it has no name)

For time 21-18-15-12-9 reps of 90lbs (50lbs with a bar):
Deadlift
Hang Power Clean
Front Squat
Push Jerk

Did it last time about a month ago and only completed up to 12 reps and it took approx 50 mintues, today completed the workout (all reps as prescribed) in 43 minutes.
