WOD 12.29.09


Pre Game

2 min Jump rope

Then…4 Rounds of this circuit:

1) 12 push-ups

2) 21 squats

3) 12 dips

4) 60 sec jump rope

Main WOD


Annie is a CrossFit benchmark workout routine. Perform this 2 exercise circuit as fast as possible:

1) Double unders

2) Full sit-ups

Rep sequence 50, 40, 30, 20, 10

* Completed “ANNIE” in 8:46 minutes

This was my second attempt at this routine.  The 1st time, I was unable to execute double unders- a jump rope maneuver where the rope travels under your feet twice per jump. A good substitution is knee tucks.

I have since got a nice feel for this move. In all 5 rounds, I did not miss one jump.

1st attempt on 10.29.09_______11:34 min

Are you going big with your workouts this holiday season? Are ya working out at this time at all?

Any one of these routines would definitely fit the bill, if you’re looking for a quick workout you can do just about anywhere.

Be Well,
