Caught in the CrossFit

I signed up for CrossFit tonight. Go me! It’s hard. I have respect for anyone that does CrossFit on the regular and at a high level. I was sweating and exhausted.

My first workout is below for anyone who wants to give it a try but may be too scared or nervous to make a commitment quite yet.

Warm Up

  • 400 meter run
  • 30 second rest
  • 5 push ups
  • 10 sit ups
  • 15 air squats

3 Reps

Bench Press

  • 70% max – 5 reps
  • 80% max – 5 reps
  • 90% max – as many reps as you can

Stretch while you aren’t benching (make sure there is a spotter still!)


  • 1500 meter rowing
  • 600 meter run
  • 75 double jump rope
  • 75 push up (hands up)
  • 60 burpees

In any order, even split them up, just finish as fast as you can.
