Lately I’ve been getting a lot of questions about cross-training – what do you do, why is it important, and do I need to do it? And while I’m no doctor or trainer (yet), I know cross-training is essential to a well-rounded plan because it helps strengthen your full body, decreasing the risk of injury.
What I can confidentially share, are some of the workouts I do. Granted, most of the time I was doing them at Enrgi Fitness, they are 100% doable from your local gym or even your home (as long as you have some weights and willing to be a bit creative). So without further ado, here is the first of many workouts I will begin to share on a(n almost) weekly basis.
36 minute AMRAP (as many rounds as possible) at each station
6 stations, 6 minutes at each station
1 minute of plank, 1 minute of supermans in between each station
Station 1 (on a treadmill and only station not in AMRAP form):
1 minute right side shuffle, 1 minute left side shuffle, 1 minute center fast jog (x2)
20 kettle bell swings, 10 push-ups
200 meter row, 20 sit-ups on rower
20 box jumps, 20 tricep dips
200 meter ski, 10 single arm snatches on each side
20 wall balls, 20 bent over rows
After trying it out, let me know what you guys think! And if there are any specific requests, I can look to incorporate them in future workouts
