WOD Wednesday: Crossfit Inspired

Today’s workout comes from my Spartan Race WOD Newsletter that I get each day in preparation for the event. Although I probably won’t be participating (it’s really intense) I like to do some of the workouts sometime. Because of the weather, I won’t be going to the gym today, so I will be completing my workout from home and maybe throw in a 30 minute run. Enjoy!

Warm up: Jump rope 10 minutes

30 Burpees

30 Jumping Lunges

2 Minute Plank

30 Tricep Dips

30 Bodyweight Squats

2 Minute Plank

50 Crunches

Cool down: Stretch

Fitorbit Trial: Online Personal Training

Today is the first day of my Fitorbit Personal Training. It’s an online based training. You get matched to a Fitorbit training expert based on your personality and goals. Your trainer will work with you to create an interactive fitness plan filled with personalized workouts and meals that easily fit into your busy schedule. Your trainer will monitor your progress, answer any questions that come up during the day, and give you motivation and feedback to help you stay on track to slim down and tighten up.

I chose to go with a woman who seems likes she’s on it when it comes to fitness and body building, which is what I want to achieve. Her name is Terri West (in the picture). She shot me over a plan yesterday, and I am currently following it somewhat (I haven’t gone shopping for the week yet, I will tonight). I will also try out her workouts, and today’s it back and chest, which I am excited about. I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t seem very personalized at all, it seems computer generated. However, I will try it and see how things go. My trial ends September 4th, so if I lose the last 7 pounds in my goal, I’ll be happy. If she can motivate me after that time period, I may try it for a few more months. We will see 🙂

I am also doing a 30 day plank challenge. It started yesterday and everyday I hold my plank for a little longer. On day 30 I would like to be at 2 minutes. I am currently at 1:02.1 Wish me luck!


Are any of you guys currently doing a fitness challenge? How is it going?
