Crossfit inspired

Posted in Cardio by Mike on July 30, 2007

Back to 4 am, this one is inspired by some of the great crossfit workouts:
20 X pushups
20X butterfly kicks
20X kettlbell crunches (Scilian crunch) 12K
30X bodyweight squats

Do that 3 times.
I had a minute to burn so I did jumping jacks, yes jumping jacks, for that minute.
Time : 10:01
Avg HR: 132
Max HR: 157

I was surprised by how quicky my push ups died off. Of all four exercises, I felt that first. I used to do quite a few of these and after that, my bench was always, proportionally, ahead of my other lifts. That is until about a year and half or two years ago, when I all but stopped pressing in all its forms.
This was my first experiment with a bodyweight type workout, I figure I’ll do more as time goes by.

This evening it was time for a walk, so we walked the big hill and the some. I also did 5 neutral grip pullups on some playgrund equipment at that park.
