I'm feeling especially grateful for my CrossFit gym right now, because even though I can't go, I've realized my coaches have prepared me for this moment. I've learned all the exercises I need to be strong and I've learned how to push myself past my comfort zone. I just need to find the inner motivation to do it at home alone. And with this simple workout template crafted by my coach, Jade Jenny, head CrossFit coach and owner of Champlain Valley CrossFit, I've created this two-week CrossFit workout plan.
I chose four different exercises per day and mixed them up to target different muscles, using mostly bodyweight and dumbbell exercises. Having this basic plan set up for two weeks avoids me staring at my dumbbells every morning, wasting time figuring out what to do. I set my alarm for 5:15 a.m. and work out from 5:30 to 6:15 a.m. — the warmup, workout, and cooldown takes just under 45 minutes. It feels so important to be in a routine, and having alone time first thing in the morning puts me in the positive mindset I need for the
chaos joy of working from home with two kids.
Two-Week Home CrossFit Workout Plan
Equipment needed: two pair of dumbbells (15 pounds and 25 pounds), a jump rope, a box (I used my coffee table), a kettlebell (20-40 pounds; use a dumbbell if you don't have one), and a set of sliders or two paper plates
Directions: After a five-minute dynamic warmup, perform each of the four exercises below for 40 seconds followed by a 20-second rest. Repeat this four-minute workout eight times for a 32-minute workout or do as many rounds as you choose based on the time you have, such as five times for a 20-minute workout or 10 times for a 40-minute workout.
After the workout, be sure to do a cooldown such as these stretches. Keep reading for instructions for each exercise.
