The great thing about CrossFit for developing a workout is that it’s pretty easy to come up with something after you learn how workouts are constructed. Working out alone can be difficult and it’s often hard to find motivation. Personal training is a great way to get a quick workout in and you can usually bring your kids.

Here are 3 ways workouts are put together and how you can do this yourself:
- Amraps (As many rounds/reps as possible). You set the amount of time you want to do the workout for, the reps alotted, and perform the workout.
10 Minutes for as many rounds possible of 15 sit-ups, 15 squats, : 30 plank
2) Workouts for time. Using the same rep scheme above, you set how many rounds of a workout you want to do.
5 rounds for time: 15 sit-ups, 15 squats, :30 plank
3) Tabata intervals. One Tabata on your phone, using an app, is 8 rounds of 20 of working out and:10 of rest.
Set a Tabata timer from a downloaded app on your phone, and get to work. Rest 1-2 minutes between exercises. The easiest way is to pick 3-4 exercises and get to work.
Your workouts don’t need to be long and complicated. The magic is in the intensity.
The best way to measure your progress is to track your workouts. Keep a journal or note on your phone of a few workouts and your scores. Repeat a workout every month to see if you’re improving.
