The 60-30-10 workout

I’ve started doing cross fit again this month, and I think it’s influencing the naming conventions and style of my workouts – of course! I decided I needed a little amped up training last week – could it be the 3 weddings i’m attending this quarter!! Yes perhaps.


So here’s a little fun one for you to try – it’s super easy, short but super high intensity. You can do this as your 2nd workout of the day, or after a strength circuit to end your session with a little burn baby burn:

The 60-30-10

  • 60 Seconds: Run up the stairs (or, Sprint on a treadmill with incline of at least 2.0)
  • 30 Sit-ups/Reps of abs (any type; mix it up! I like hanging leg raises…)
  • 10 Push-ups (any style but keep good form in a solid plank, getting your chest to the floor and your neck neutral)
  • Rest to catch your breath
  • Repeat until you drop 🙂

3 times through = Beginner

4 times through = Athlete

5 times through = Super Star!
