Be FFAB! Workout of the Week I

Guys -- I'm committed to bringing more workouts to this blog!! CrossFit style workouts are my favorite but most Be FFAB! workouts, like this one, will be workouts anyone can do, anywhere! This AMRAP (as many reps as possible) can be done at home, outside, OR at the gym and there's no equipment required! Looks easy? Think again! (Those burpees will get you!) AMRAP-10

Valentine's Day Workout

Hey friends! It's a snowy day in DC, but no excuses, right?  You can do this workout in the house with no equipment! And you really only have to convince yourself to get moving for 10 minutes! It's just 10 minutes long! (Granted, you should definitely warmup and cool down which will tack on time, but once you get going you'll be glad you did!) And what's Valentine's Day without a little workout?

Note: If you can't do push-ups with good form (no snaking, as they say in CrossFit) then lower to your knees or do incline pushups! If you can't jump in your apartment or wherever you live, swap the jump squats with air squats or lunges. However, if you decide to do lunges I would suggest 10 on each leg, not 10 altogether (too easy)! Alright Valentines, feel the burn!

Valentine's-Day-WorkoutOh wait, burpees not your thing? Read why they're good for you from Rx Review!

Interesting fact from the article: At the 2012 CrossFit Open, one of the workouts was as many burpees as possible in 7 minutes! The winner that year completed 161! That's amazing! 

How many could you get?
