Crunch time

I know all you students are cramming for time right now, but it is important to keep working out to relieve stress and get your nose out of your books. CrossFit releases endorphins into your body, these chemicals make you feel happy. This will help to eliminate depression and anxiety that all students suffer from during exam time. So after exercising you get a “Natural kick ” which is longer lasting and safe unlike drugs or stimulants like caffeine.

Come down and do a workout and get in and out of the gym in 30 minutes. I will post 8 minute workouts at the gym available for you over the next couple weeks to accommodate your schedule.

Try doing a Tabata mashup, take 2 exercises and do alternating tabata intervals with each, having a combined total rounds of 16.

For example:

  • Deadlifts
  • Handstand Pushups

Do 20 seconds of Deadlifts, then rest 10 seconds, do 20 seconds of Handstand Pushups and repeat 8 times.
