CrossFit Inspired Kettlebell Workout with Carrots’n’Cake

October 16, 2013 · 4 comments

I do not “do” CrossFit. However, I love the idea of competing against yourself and making fitness more like an actual sport. I’ve been to 5 CrossFit classes where I sampled different WODs. The classes are an hour long but the actual workout is really quick and perfect for people are time constrained.

I asked my friend Tina from Carrots’n’Cake to share a challenging workout that I could do using just a kettlebell in 10 minutes inspired by CrossFit. The AMRAP (as many reps as possible) workout that she came up with was way more challenging that I anticipated even with my training at Barry’s. Watch below to try it out yourself.

Let me know in the comments what your final score is. Tina got 5 and I scored a 4.

Tina is a certified NASM trainer as well as a level 1 CrossFit coach.

Are you a fan of CrossFit? It seems like people love it or hate it. What is your position? We also shot a video answering your top 5 CrossFit questions coming soon!

I’m going to mix this in with my other workout routines, thanx for the video! Just one quick question though. How heavy was the kettlebell you were using? I know the amount of weight you should use is personal but a guideline would be nice.

I think around 15 lbs but am not positive. I’ll have to ask Tina!
