Cross Training AMRAP Workout #1
With my second femoral neck stress fracture finally on the mend, its time to get back into shape! This week, I am easing back into it with short (3-5 mile) runs, and cross training workouts every other day. I cannot stress how important cross training is for runners! Not only does it get your core nice and strong to help you run faster, it also keeps your muscles balanced and your body injury free.
For anyone that is interested in a good cross-training workout, here is my first AMRAP workout this week (AMRAP stands for As Many Rounds As Possible). All you need for this workout is a stop watch and a few weights. I have listed weight suggestions to use in parenthesis, but feel free to use whatever weight you feel comfortable with for this workout. After your warm-up, start the stopwatch, and do as many rounds as possible in 30 minutes. Ready, set, GO!
AMRAP WORKOUT #1:
Warm-up: 25 push-ups, jump rope 200x, 30 sit-ups, 25 3-count flutter kicks
