CrossFit workouts are generally intended to improve and develop strength and conditioning. It is an ideal routine for women since it allows the enhancement of a wide variety of physical skills such as endurance, stamina, speed, balance, strength, and flexibility. Since the focal point of CrossFit workouts is functional body movement, it is the perfect choice for women who are involved in physical activities and those who are always on the go.
With this strategy, you are met with everyday workout challenges that continually changes. The result would be that you're likely to reach your highest fitness level in no time. Let's have a look at eight CrossFit workouts for women to keep fit.
Combination of dead lift, squat, and push press – the initial stage of a CrossFit workout is the practicing the basics of squatting, push press, and dead lifts. A woman should be able to feel things out first before starting some heavy routines later. This can be done in a week.
Light and moderate weight for the early stages – the purpose of lifting weights is to develop strength as well as determine a good technique for the entire duration of the workouts. Remember a woman's objective in CrossFit workouts is to be fit, not hurt herself.
Now let's go down to business...
Cindy – Cindy is a routine composed of a combination of pull ups, pushups, and squats. Repeat a pattern of 10 pushups, 5 pull ups, and 15 squats in a 15-20 minute span. As one can see, everything starts with a light training and progress will be seen in no time.
Dead lift to fast run – the next ideal CrossFit for women is a pair of dead lift and running. What you need to do is perform five sets of dead lift. Each set must be with five repetitions as well. After that, you run 1.5-2.0 miles and record the duration of the entire routine.
Double under + sit-ups – double under is an exercise done with the help of a jumping rope. What you do is jump with good enough elevation to enable the rope to go and pass under your feet twice. This can be pretty tough for women but it sure does develop reflexes. Combine this exercise with sit-ups right after.
Fast run coupled with pull-ups – perform a repetitive routine of pull-ups (the maximum you can perform simultaneously) and then be able to run not more than 500 meters right after. Repeat and then determine if there is an increase or decrease in the number of pull-ups you can do right after every run.
Thrusters and pull-ups – the key in this routine is repetition. Start with similar number of thrusters and pull ups. For instance, begin with 20 and 20, and then repeat with lesser, say 15 and 15 and so on.
Burpee – Burpee is a term referring to a type of pushup that incorporates elevation or a jump. This is quite a tough routine for a woman but it can enhance endurance and the cardiovascular strength in general.
