Actually does that sound a bit weird? Maybe we should think of another name for ourselves!
Well, we’re up to Week 2 of CrashFit. If you’re just joining us this week, you may want to check out Week 1 and start with those exercises. Remember, everyone can join in the live Facebook workout session on Monday nights. You don’t have to do the current week’s workout, just do the exercises from the week you’re up to during the ad breaks :)
Thanks to the following for joining in:
If you did the exercises in your own time, check in on the Facebook album so I can add you to the list :)
So how did everyone find Week 1 exercises? This week there are mostly new exercises, so make sure you check out the videos. Let’s have a look shall we?
Week 2 AMRAPS
Here’s your 5 x AMRAPS for this week. Start out doing CrashFit during the ad breaks with me and all the other CrashFitters on Monday night and then try it again during the week at whichever intensity you feel most comfortable with.
AMRAP #1: Star Jumps vs Pulse Squat
Yes, Adam we all know what Star Jumps are!!! The pulse squat will get intense towards the end, just take it easy :)
AMRAP #2: Push Ups vs Scissor Kicks
Remember you can choose the level of push up that suits you. I go for the Learner ones!
AMRAP #3: Book Row vs Bicycle Situps
Make sure you keep you back nice and flat for the row and keep your elbows close to your sides.
AMRAP #4: Wall Squat with calf raise vs Marching
Again, this wall squat is a little intense towards the end. If you don’t like it, just do standing calf raises instead ie raise up on your toes while standing, perhaps with a hand on the wall to steady yourself.
AMRAP #5: Slow Couch Climbers vs Bringing Back the 80s
Bringing Back the 80s is Adam’s name for this exercise – who had a flashback to aerobicise classes? ;)
Just a few things to remember:
- Take it easy
- Take it easy
- Seriously, take it easy. Don’t do anything that hurts, work at a comfortable pace. It’s not a race.
- If you have any questions, post it on the FB wall or send me a message.
- You’ll need a mat or a comfortable spot on the floor and a telephone directory or book.
- Don’t laugh at me doing the exercise videos!
