~My Top Five Favorite Workouts~
I have been recording all my workouts. We do a mix up here at the farm but my husband did his crossfit level 1 coach training this year, so I get to be his guinea pig. We like to joke that I’m his fitness protégé and I like to poke fun at him because his nutrition game could use some work. So we have compiled a few of the favorites for 2018 thus far. I hope you get a chance to give these workouts a try and please let me know what you thought !!
1.) ~11 terrible minutes~ (but worth every bit of effort)
A.) Deadlifts 5 sets of 3 ….. increasing that weight baby
B.) METCON – Chipper (just get it done)
50 wall balls , 40 box jumps, 30 kettlebell swings (16kg) 20 burpees, 10 rope lowers…… but wait…… on the top of every minute complete 2x heavy clean & jerks.
2.) ~Everday is Leg day~
A. Back squat 6 sets of 2 ( go heavy , don’t be afraid to fail )
B. METCON – 12 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible)
6 power cleans 55#, 12 front rack reverse lunges 55# , 12 Bar facing burpees
3.) ~Team Husband & Wife~

5.) ~Double or Nothing~ in partners
A.) 15 min AMRAP (One partner working at a time alternating complete rounds)
3 power cleans #70 , 6 burpee box jump overs
B.) 15 minute AMRAP ( yup I know again yikes)
10 Push Press 55# 20 wall balls (my 14# was not happening at this point… down to 10#)
I realize most of these workouts require investing in gym equiptment. If you have a garage in your home it is the perfect place to throw around a barbell! During the Summer months I enjoy taking these workouts outside (I use the side of my house as my wall ball target).
Working out from home is the best decision I ever made! It is a bit of an investment to get the equiptment you need at first but worth every bit ! As a busy Mom of 5 I love the convenience and efficacy of doing hiit training at home!
