Crossfit style workouts can help you get awesome results without the usual repetitiveness you might find at a typical gym. When you add a friendly competition to the mix, you’d be surprised how hard you can push yourself. A co-worker at my office, Keith Queen, is a very experienced crossfitter and has all the equipment needed to complete these high-intensity style workouts. Lucky for me, I have the pleasure of joining him when I’m feeling bold, adventurous and need a switch from my normal routine.

Rules: This workout is call the “Partner Workout – 600 Yards” and involves one member going through the below moves while the other holds plank. If the team member drops out of plank, they both must complete 5 burpees before continuing on the course. Member A completes moves while Member B holds plank and then they switch. Both team members are timed through the workout including the time in between members switching roles and once they’re done the other team must try to beat their combined time. Flip a coin to see who goes first.
