It's raining, it's pouring...

(singing) It's raining...It's pouring...The old man is snoring...

It's easy on rainy days to stay in bed and make excuses for all the reasons you should not work out. That is the beauty of CrossFit. Multiple exercises can be performed in the comfort and warmth of your home. Below are some sample WODs great for the house or apartment.

WOD #1
5 rounds-
20 squats
20 situps
20 pushups

WOD #2
as many rounds as possible in 12 mins-
5 handstand pushups
10 dips (use a chair and prop your feet on the couch or another chair to increase the difficulty)
20 jumping lunges

WOD #3
5 rounds--
15 dumbell or KB swings
20 squats
25 situps

Get creative. If you have a homemade set of parallettes than add that to the workout. If you have a set of dumbells then throw in some renegade rows, thrusters, man makers, shoulder press, push press, or push jerk.

A big holler baller shout out to the 5:30 and 6:30 AM Deep Eddy boot campers for trudging out in the rain this morning and getting in a killer workout.
