I’m sure you have heard of this huge workout trend, right? It’s a functional training method from the US, that’s getting more popular each year. My Instagram feed is being flooded with pictures of bad ass boys and girls, lifting heavy barbells and kettlebells and looking AWESOME!
So needless to say, I was super excited to get an invitation to visit the Reebok CrossFit 020 box in Amsterdam. Together with Fit Girl Anna, we participated in a training and had a fun get-together with Erwin van Beek, CrossFit specialist and trainer. When we arrived, we were welcomed by Erwin himself. Anna and I hopped into an amazing Reebok outfit, and it was time to get started! We warmed up with eight minutes of rope jumping. I looove rope jumping, it got my heart racing within the first minute. Erwin really pushed me to my limits, but in a good, supporting way.
The WOD was a combination of DL’s and KBS’s. Say.. whhaatt? The workout of the day were deadlifts and kettlebell swings. A. Lot. Of. Them..!
The WOD scheme looked like this:
- 1st minute: 1 DL, 10 KBS
- 2nd minute: 2 DL, 10 KBS
- 3rd minute: 3 DL, 10 KBS
- …. all the way up to the 20th minute: 20 DL, 10 KBS!
