Leg Day: CrossFit Leg Day

Intro

Warning: this workout will cause you to sweat!!

Haha, with all seriousness, this workout is a killer. Been trying to step out of my comfort zone lately to really challenge myself to grow! This workout definitely accomplished that. Only 3 exercises for a 25 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible). Just to give you an idea, this is me post workout.

This workout is no joke, so let’s get to it!

RB Up Right Rows: 10
Hip RB Side to Side Steps: 15 each way
Hip RB Diagonal Steps: 15 each way

25 minute AMRAP
5 Front Squats
8 Hexbar Deadlifts
10 Wall Balls

TIPS:
Make sure to pace yourself. You don’t want to go all out. After I completed a round, I made sure to rest at least 1 minute until I started the next round. You might be more conditioned than me, so your rest time will be shorted & vice versa. Goal is to not fatigue to quickly! Also, make sure that you’re breathing properly. You want to take quality breaths in through your nose & out through your mouth. Control these two things & you should be able to power through this workout!

Cooldown

Putting the equipment away lol.
Followed by a 5-10 minute lower body stretch.

Outro

Circuit training is new to me so expect to see more posts like this! I enjoy switching up my training. This gives my body a new stimulus to adapt to in order to continue to grow. If you’re interested in training with me, you will found all the information you need to know on my Working With Me tab. Leave a comment letting me know what you think! Hope to hear from you soon (:
