Because I had off from work on Monday and Tuesday (Fall break for school – hooray for annual leave days!), I decided that instead of going to the gym, I’d simply do a workout in the comfort of my own home. We are blessed with a screened in porch at home so although it was still pretty chilly, at least I had a roof over my head.
Tabata – Double Unders
The way this WOD works is pretty simple – I did 10 burpees and 1 tater, then 9 burpees and 2 taters, 8 burpees/3 taters…all the way until I finished with 1 burpee and 10 taters. For those of you who are picturing me doing a couple burpees and then snacking on some potatoes, let me show you what a “tater” is when it comes to crossfit:
Basically, it’s a kettlebell swing followed by a front squat. I used a 25 pound kettlebell for mine – needless to say, by round 6 they really start to suck.
I forgot to start my timer for this WOD because in all honesty, I was wiped out from the double unders, so I have no idea how long this workout took me to complete. And in full disclosure, the original plan was to finish with another tabata of double unders, but the only thing I could do after finishing the burpee/tater mash-up was lay prostrate on the floor. So instead I did some stretching and called it a day.
