Strength and Skill

SIDE LUNGES. This is not a skill or lift that is often practiced in the CrossFit world, but the strength and range of motion utilized in this movement is fantastic for helping to stabilize pelvis. Warm-up and then perform 3 working sets of 8 on each side. Yes, your weights will be lighter.

Conditioning

Today’s conditioning is higher intensity cardio. Make sure you stay around 70% intensity throughout the workout. There is no built in rest, so you decide where you want to rest and when. If running is not happening for you, then perform a 250m row or 15 modified burpees or walk the 200m. We have women walk 200m all the time, and it’s still a great workout. Pick a weight for the double kettle bell swings that you can do all 10 reps in a row for at least the first round.

 

5 Rounds
10 Russian Double Kettle Bell Swings (26-35lbs)

200m Run

Accessory Work

We will finish with some of the animal movements we did in the warm-up. This may feel a little different now, so move with ease. You may want to throw some deep stretches in the mix as well.

    Im wantung to do this workout today but it is pouring so I cant run. I have an airdyne how many calories should i do in place of running?

      RAINING?! How lovely! The run is 200m, so that would be on the shorter and quicker side of things. I would either do AirDyne for 30 seconds at a higher intensity (80-90%) or shoot for 15-20 Cal each round. Sometimes they workout to be quite similar, but pick an alternate and just keep it consistent throughout the workout. Have fun!
