A few posts back I talked about the Crossfit Cindy Workout. Well tonight I gave it a try! Here’s what I did for my cycle:
- 10 push-ups
- 10 pull ups (using resistance bands)
- 10 body weight squats
Make it through each once and this counts as a full cycle. Past that I kept things simple and just repeated the cycle for 20 minutes. If numbers of cycles, beating your own time, etc., motivates you then by all means, check out Formosa’s post. Otherwise I can say that doing this continuous for 20 minutes does get your heart rate up. I was able to maintain 10 pull-ups and 10 squats for 20 minutes — the squats got dicey near the end but I did it. The push-ups, however, fell apart at about the eight minute mark and I had to go to my knees.
This one is simple enough that I found myself asking: Why didn’t I think of that? I think I’ll try to add this to my weekly rotation. I’ve found that the older I get the harder it is to motivate myself to exercise. One way I do get motivated is to not do the same thing more than once-per-week.
Call this one a keeper!
