30 Double Unders or 30 Box Jumps (12”)
Don’t judge a book by its cover! I’m for real. We’ve all heard the phrase, but this morning when I looked at the 12” box jumps, that is exactly what I did. LOL! The joke was on me.
Note, I opted out on the double unders. Buying a jump rope is my to-do list. I’m determined to get the double unders, I just need practice.
Two weeks ago, I kicked it out on the 24” box jumps, so how hard could 12” boxes be? Haaa! Do you know Alicia Keys, “This girl is on fire?” I swear I was singing a similar tune about my quads—and that was only after round one (30).
Though the box was shorter, the pace was faster. Geez… I’m trying to remember how many rounds, but I’m so wiped out. I think I did four or five rounds. Either case, I did at least 90 reps of each.
If you’re reading this and you don’t work out. Stop!
Do you care about your health and well-being? Just for fun, I googled the phrase, “Why should I work out?”
A ton of articles popped up. My favorite ones are listed below. Take a few minutes to read through whichever headline resonates with you. I hope that at least one of the articles strikes a nerve in you… to the point that you decide to get moving. Start with a 30-minute walk two to three times a week. When you walk the same distance in a shorter amount of time, challenge yourself to walk further and faster. I promise, you’ll feel it.
Later we will talk about CrossFit. 🙂
