Remember back when Tish and her fiancé Mark (congrats, you two love birds!) checked out BRICK CrossFit, aka Bob Harper’s gym? Well, the peeps at BRICK are at it again—this time with SpeedX, a spin-off of CrossFit. The high-energy 60-minute class blends a fast-paced cardio workout with high-interval strength training. But just in case you can’t get to BRICK to try the new class yourself, they designed a workout just for us that you can do at home! Whee!
The BRICK SpeedX Workout
What you need: Grab a heavier set of dumbbells (10- to 20-pounds should do ya), a towel, some water, a mat, some rockin’ good tunes and a whole lot of positive energy.
How it works: Each station consists of two movements. Perform movement A for one minute doing as many reps as possible, then immediately perform movement B for one minute, doing as many reps as possible, then immediately perform movement A once again for one minute. Rest for 10 seconds then move on to the next station. Repeat the full circuit once for a 15-minute workout, twice for a 30-minute workout, three times for a 45-minute workout or four times for a killer 60-minute full-body workout.
For best results: Do this SpeedX workout two to three times a week on non-consecutive days. Eat balanced and clean to give you the energy to get through it and recovery properly.
