CrossFit & Circuit Workout?

This particular circuit you will probably see a whole lot of to be honest because I want to continue to use heavier weights as time progresses and speed up my times (when I start timing myself) but for now, I am just thankful that I was able to finish! lol. If you are someone into the sport, you should definitely do these circuit workouts, bet you will love em, maybe? 🙂

My 2 Minute Burpee Challenge – YouTube Video

https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=I8-yI5Yxzck

I was challenged the other day to do burpees for 2 minutes and record it and so today I did do it to the best of my ability and to be honest it wasn’t easy. I ended up doing 3 rounds (off camera) because today was my circuit training day.. but yeah sore and fatigued! 

If you are interested in seeing what my workout entailed today, follow me on Instagram, I post regularly with my workouts and I try to upload them on my blog as much as possible as well!
