We adopted this workout from the CrossFit Kids program to see if our “adults” could hang. Imagine if you started doing CrossFit at the age of 4…these kids that have been are breaking all their school records. Can’t wait to see the first batch of kids head into collegiate athletics and onto professional levels.

Workout
Medicine Ball Shuttle Runs
A 6, 10, 14, and 20lb ball will be set 10 yards apart from the starting position. P1 will run to each ball and bring it back to the start position. P2 will then return all the balls to their original position. Teams will complete 6 rounds for time.

This series will be targeted for parents who do not have the option of heading to a gym.  You can pretty much scale down any CrossFit workout with just a pull up bar and set of dumbbells or resistance bands.  But, we’ll make it even simpler than that, we’ll start off with bodyweight exercises only.

Obviously you won’t be able to get the full potential of benefits, but any physical activity is better than none!

You can YouTube any exercise on here for a demo.  Credit to a CF affiliate from the CF message board (www.board.crossfit.com) for the base program.

10 push ups (head up towards the horizon, straight plank, chest lightly touches floor, elbows in, full extension of the arms at the top)
