There’s more than likely a gym (or in CrossFit terms, box) in your community but it’s not always easy to fit in a time to go around your busy schedule.

One component of CrossFit is weight lifting, and you more than likely don’t have free weight barbells in your home, but that doesn’t mean you can’t benefit from a CrossFit style workout from your own living room.

How do I start Crossfit at home?

Remember to talk to your physician before starting a new exercise routine. Once you begin also take care to listen to your body. These workouts appear easy, but if you’re just starting out, take it slow. You should feel tired but if something hurts, stop.

If you are wondering how many days a week should I do Crossfit? Try to start doing it slowly.  It is better to add to your workout days than to take days out. So start with doing a WOD 2 days a week and see how you feel.

If you feel like you need more you can add days.  This way you will get the best CrossFit workouts while still getting the rest you need to recover.   

You may want to keep a record of your progress. Try alternating workouts, for example, do workout 1 on Monday, workout 2 on Wednesday and workout 5 on Friday.

Keep a tally on a calendar or notebook of which you do each day. In a CrossFit box, each workout is timed. It’s a good idea to run a timer at home too, you can then track your progress and see how much you’re improving with each subsequent workout.
