List of the best crossfit leg workouts
Good thing is that CrossFit leg workout, or CrossFit’s in general, can be done anywhere. You don’t have to hit the gym if you are busy, you are encouraged to do this though.
I have a couple workouts that I love to share with you!
Exercise with weights
The Hurricane of leg workouts s as called by CrossFitters!
You will need a barbell of a weight suitable for your gender and fitness.
It’s a chain of repetitions of thrusters and pullups done successively as follows:
21T-21P-15T-15P-9T-9P- No Stops!
Scary yet fruitful! If done right supposed to cut body fat by 4%.
Challenge yourself to maximum duration of 3 minutes. Ps. some would just take 2 minutes to finish!
Exercises with no weights
Can you moon walk? No? Switch to Walk Lunge. He he!
Regardless of how funny it looks, your muscles will love this exercise. Painful? Yes, but worth it!
400 meters walk lunge should be done in 10-15 minutes. Again it’s dependable. You won’t like muscle injuries or stiff knees. Eventually you will be able to do the exercise as prescribed.
Squat & Run!
Mexican Hips is a dream to pursuit. Second me at this? Who would fight this? This exercise is typically for you, Ladies out there. Men? Ahem!
It’s simple, or that’s how it seems. You run 400 meters then do 5 repetitions of back squats. Repeat the chain 5 times.
Running after squatting is such a different experience. Did you ever hear the quote friends that sweat together stay together? We’re talking about workouts, don’t get it wrong. Anyway pick the right friend who will support. It’s a tough exercise, heaps of fun with the right buddy.
You won’t feel your legs for the first 100 meters and then you will adjust. Again keep on improving your speed and the weights. Just make sure you won’t shock your body! Wanna give it a shot?
It’s a WOD that our coach used to call WTF.
Sorry but it’s really exhausting, that’s usually the only take people have on CrossFit’s.
It’s as simple, or as exhausting, as that: 1 mile Tread mill running-100 pullups-200 pushups-300 bodyweight squats-Treadmill running; dare you do it though!
You won’t feel your calves, glutes, quadriceps,..you name it! You will get addicted though!
CrossFit’s will literally do magic to your body, Just some dedication. Dedication and patience are the clues to real results.
I developed some tricks to keep me on track. Change! Your soul loves change. I always try new gyms. I buy myself new leggings every now and then. I update my playlist. That’s so important! Music will give you the rush or the energy pump you need. I keep track of Beyoncé, Meghan Trainor; and the booty..you know?, and J Lo. Kim? Who cares?
Now I have my body to motivate me. Whenever I feel the pain I take a look on my new sculpted friends on the back!
