Crossfit Workout | Living it up on the East Coast

LOVING the East Coast.

Living it up on Hilton Head Island this week, 0 complaints.

Typing right now is a bit of a struggle because my chest is THAT sore from a Crossfit class I did (not a complaint because I enjoy being sore!)… Yep, you heard me, I did CROSSFIT. 🙂

I’m visiting my aunt and she is a Crossfit fein so I decided to go to her local gym & try it for myself. & well, I’M IN LOVE.

Crossfit is my jam! The workouts are all high intensity and the quicker the better.

If you follow me on snapchat you saw I was the onlyyyyy girl in the class, benchpressing with the guys & I kicked their butt when it came to the walking lunges! muhuhaha.

So basically you are done in 10 minutes, dripping sweat & feeling like a BEAST. I LOVED it.

Today I wasn’t able to make it to a class because i was awfully busy, ya knowww, layin’ out… 😉

However that was no excuse to not get a sweat in.

I hear over & over again, “What do I do if I don’t have any time to workout?”

Huhhhhh?

No one has time to workout.

We make time for it.

I love working out anywhere,

especially at home, outside, a yoga class, cross fit, dance, going for a walk, hike, bike ride, swim, at a park, you get it.

“Working out” does not mean going to the gym for an hour.

Ew, who really wants to do that EVERYDAY?

Keep it spicy, switch things up, make it ENJOYABLE.

Think about how goooood you feel afterwards.

Today I had a Crossfit inspired workout out by the pool because i’m on a real kick from it.

I warmed up for 5 minutes with body weight squats, jump squats, burpees & lunges. Once I was sweaty I got ready to WORK.

ALL I did was: Bulgarian split squats (one foot on bench, one foot on ground, & lunge) for 30 reps on each leg, push ups for 12 reps, & squat to side shuffle to squat again for 20 reps, I did this circuit for 10 minutes with no rest between each exercis (I only got through 2 of each exercise) & then I was done!

How easy is that?

I was dripping in sweat (as seen on snapchat) & felt GREAT.

So, who doesn’t have time to workout?

Think again, muchacho!

Much love,

Amanda

( i’ll be over here with my detox drink if ya need me!;) )
