***See my update at the end!
Just finished planning out my Cardio Cross Train class for tonight and I'm ready. Ready to kick butt & take names.
Tonight, we will be doing a class similar to CrossFit: a set number of reps & intervals done over a certain length of time. Typically, the CrossFit WOD (workout of the day) includes cardio and some weight intervals, but we'll be doing simple cardio with body weight to keep things from getting too hectic. The schedule for tonight looks like this:
Run the length of the room 5 times
That's 1 round. We're going for as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes.
Jump rope 20 times
10 squat jumps
Again, as many rounds as possible in 10 minutes.
Depending on how I'm feeling & if the participants are still alive & kicking, I'll throw some power lunges in between the rounds.
For core, I'm doing 2 minute intervals.
10 plank walks
5 rope climbs
Push forward & backward in plank 8 times
4 full sit ups
Each interval for 2 minutes, as many rounds as possible.
What do think will be the reaction from tonight's workout. Stay tuned!
Try it out & let me know what you think!
I can't win -- they still complained! Halfway through, they were saying how it was hard work & they wanted to stop. No! After class, I all but forced them to tell me what they do like since they made it pretty clear what they don't. They like last week better! So...back to square one next week.
