Travel WOD #2
Today’s WOD follows a classic CrossFit rep scheme, 21-15-9. In this couplet, you will do 21 air squats and 21 pushups. Then repeat the movements doing 15 reps of each movement. Lastly do 9 reps of each movement. Air Squats and pushups is a good combination when you are traveling because you don’t need any equipment. This workout can be done in a hotel room.
The round of 15 in any 21-15-9 WOD can be the toughest. Get a sense of your capacity during the round of 21 and pace accordingly so that you can finish this WOD. Begin with a 7-10 minute warmup and end with a 5-7 minute cooldown/stretching session.
Travel WOD #1
Today’s WOD is a long one and it will test your aerobic endurance. Don’t go all out right out of the gate. Find a nice pace, but don’t go too slow. Do the pushups on your knees if standard pushups as a scaling option if necessary.
