You've probably heard the term ‘CrossFit' thrown around—maybe you've heard it so many times that it's too late to ask what it is. CrossFit is a fitness regimen that incorporates high-intensity interval training (HIIT), weightlifting, plyometrics, powerlifting, gymnastics, and other exercises. According to the CrossFit website, "CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity." There are currently over 13,000 CrossFit affiliates, half of which are in the United States. CrossFit workouts are data-driven. They repeatedly show results for people committed to the workout. If you're ready to see results fast, to gain muscle and strength, and to sculpt and tone your body, try these CrossFit exercises at home.
Burpees are the ultimate strength and endurance exercise designed to get your heart rate up and your limbs burning in no time. A burpee involves a push-up and a jump done alternately and as quickly as possible. To perform a burpee, stand with your feet shoulder-width apart. Get into squat position and put your hands on the floor inside your feet. Thrust back into a plank and do one push-up, then jump your feet back toward your hands, stand, and jump in the air. When you land, immediately go back into squat position and start again.
