'Let the bodies hit the floor'

Today I want to share something with you guys that I haven't really mentioned before...


 CrossFit is an intense interval training workout that combines cardiovascular exercise with strength training for short but extremely difficult workouts. These sessions are called Workouts of the Day, or WODs, and often contain exercises like weighted squats, Olympic weight lifting, pull-ups, and push-ups.

At the moment in the fitness industry it has become a bit like either love it or hate it.
I am a strong believer that every person is entitled to their own opinion but should never knock something until they have tried it and yes it could be dangerous (like anything nowadays) but only if you go straight in to CrossFit without attending the course to help you understand and perform each given exercise correctly. Or if you perform with silly weight that you know is too heavy for you...always remember to start off light and work your way up once you become fitter and stronger.

As it is such a gorgeous day today why not try this quick CrossFit at home workout, in your garden with the sun shining:

25 Squats  5 Push ups
20 Squats  10 Push ups
15 Squats  15 Push ups
10 Squats  20 Push ups
5 Squats  25 Push ups

Perform with no rest in-between and remember to record your time.
