CrossFit Inspired Cardio

I have a super fun workout challenge for you today! All you need is yourself and a pair of running shoes. I like to do this workout at the track but it can be done anywhere. If you are running outside and not on a treadmill you can use MapMyRun to route your mile.

But before I share the workout I want talk about this kid for a second…


Oh Caden I love you so much, and you never cease to amaze me with your super human baby strength. Seriously, this little guy is going to put both myself and Josh to shame.

We have one cabinet in the kitchen that we did not baby proof that contains our tupperware. Caden loves to play with the lids and containers so we left that cabinet open for him to explore.ย This past weekend I was shocked when he took the biggest lid we have and proceeded to do this…



He made his own push sled! He tried to roll the weight on top of the lid but couldn’t get it on his own so I helped him and then he took off. Up and down the hallway for 20 minutes.

I have done this exercise multiple times in front of him with a towel and weights, but never expected him to try and do it too. It was so cute and pretty amazing to watch him go. I am inspired by how strong he is!

I love CrossFit workouts because I know they are going to get the job done in a decent amount of time. These types of workouts push me to move faster and allow me to track my progress.

Perform the following exercises resting only when necessary. Record your time. This is a great benchmark workout to measure your improvement. Try it today and do it again in a month.

  1. This looks like a great workout! I love simple workouts that get the job done!

  2. Oh my lord…I cannot believe he went up and down your hallway with the weight…he’s going to be one hunky toddler (:

  4. Thanks for the workout idea Tamara. Came home from work and with a little moderation completed it – burned 335 calories in 45 minutes and my heart rate was in the 150’s – 165’s a good portion of the time. Instead of the run I did my miles on the elliptical. One question – when doing the bicycle crunches – can you clarify if one on each side is a count of 1? Those pictures of Caden inspire this 55 year old to keep moving.
    Love, Mom

    • Glad you liked it! I counted 1-2-3.. but you can count 1-1, 2-2, 3-3… if you want. It is more crunches and that is never a bad thing ;).
