One thing that this pandemic has taught us is to take care of our health, besides appreciating what we have without taking it for granted. If you have a balanced workout/fitness routine and the feel of sweat droplets rolling all over your back and down your cheeks excites you, it’s good to go.
However, incorporating the same exercises can be exhausting and mundane. So, to spice up your groove while challenging yourself why not try CrossFit?
Yes, all those strange words that you were figuring out all this while like ‘Boxes’ (CrossFit Gyms), ‘WODs’ (Workouts Of the Day), ‘AMRAP’ (As Many Reps as Possible) and more has all got to do with CrossFit.
CrossFit consists of a strength and conditioning workout where functional movement is performed at the high-intensity interval. It promotes flexibility, strength, builds muscles and does a lot of wonders. Some types of equipment you may find in accomplishing the workouts are rowers and bikes, kettlebells, medicine balls, rings, speed ropes and plyo boxes.
