How Hard is CrossFit?

How Hard is CrossFit?


Hurricanes and CrossFit workouts have one thing in common: Both are brutal. Doing this total-body workout against the clock can burn 261 calories in 20 minutes. That nearly as many calories as you would burn during a typical half-hour gym workout.


Set a timer on your watch or phone for 20 minutes. Do 5 pull-ups, 10 push-ups, and 15 squats, in that order. That’s 1 round. Do as many rounds as you can before the time runs out.


Use an overhand grip to hang from a pull up bar with your arms straight. Pull your chest to the bar. Pause, and then return to the starting position.


Assume a push up position. With your elbows tucked, lower your chest until it is just a few inches off the floor. Pause, and push yourself back up.


Stand with your feet set slightly beyond shoulder width. Now push your hips back and lower your body as far as possible. Stand back up.
