Active recovery? You’re probably thinking “ain’t no one got time for that!” Don’t worry we get it. You’re focused and committed to achieving your goals. You’ve got a one way ticket on the gains train and you don’t want to get left sitting on the platform! Well if you haven’t already, have a read of our post about calorie intake on training days vs rest days and that might just help you drop that mantra you’ve been clinging to that “More is Better” when it comes to your training and workouts.
I am so stoked to get a new PR on Murph today! Last year I struggled with my pull ups and push ups and finished around 48 minutes. This year I felt great during and after the workout and hit a PR of 36 minutes 47 seconds! Having done half Murph a few weeks ago at our box North Naples CrossFit, I had a lot of information to help me strategize.
I’ve owned three CrossFit affiliates and a yoga studio, so I understand the importance of showing up to a gym and being part of a community. But being an adult (kind of) I also understand life gets in the way. Work, family, dogs, all things that distract us and sometimes prevent us from actually showing up to classes. So having a gym at home is a great solution to that problem (or excuse)!
I know it’s cold out, but here’s a workout to get you outdoors for some fresh air and vitamin D! Enjoy this body weight workout of running and push-ups.
Jason and I are left to our own devices during Open Gym sessions we often look to CrossFit.com for their workout of the day.

Saved by a downpour, Jason was spared the pain of running 1200m – that’s what happens when you drop into boxes in the North of the country in the middle of summer!
