5.5.20 At-home Workout
Today we're going to re-visit a workout we introduced about a month ago. It's the CrossFit Benchmark workout, Annie. We periodically re-test these benchmark workouts so we can track our improvement over time.. cause the work we do IS MEASURABLE!!
This is one of my favorite, cause I LOVE Double Unders (2 passes of the jump rope under the feet for each jump).. but this one is always deceivingly difficult cause of the volume of sit-ups. EXPECT to be sore for a couple days after this one.. good thing it's the weekend!
This workout not only requires a good bank account of muscular stamina, but also a HIGH degree of coordination and timing to be able to do the double-unders..
"Annie” 50-40-30-20-10 Reps of each movement For Time (AFAP) As Fast As Possible:
Double-unders (DUs) (If you can't do DUs, do 2x as many jump rope singles OR work on your coordination by doing Double Taps- Jump, tap the thighs twice before you land back on the ground!)
Lots of jumping today so be sure to warm up those Calves and Achilles! To "unpack" the abs after all those sit-ups, try doing the Yoga pose "Cobra" for 20-30 seconds!
