Forget Milk. Crossfit, it does a body good.

I have to say that going to and watching the Crossfit Games in LA last weekend was tremendously inspiring. I was really pumped up and ready for a great workout yesterday, and that’s what I got. The workout is called “MACHO MAN.” Or perhaps MACHO WOMAN, lol.

I really love this workout (although it was very difficult near the end) as it involves quite a bit of barbell work which is always an excellent ab workout in itself. Win, win.


Every minute for 20 rounds of the following:




I did this with 35 lbs. and started sweating bullets by the third minute and was having doubts whether I would finish or not. Mental game on! I just concentrated on doing 1 set at a time and doing my reps with the best technique possible. Having some rest between the sets was very helpful as well. Needless to say, I finished it and would actually do this workout at home with dumbbells.

After 180 total reps, what’s sore today? My shoulders. My abs (yes!). My hamstrings. My ass (yes!).

Now your turn!
