Fitness Friday-Crazy Eights

Welcome to another week of the Fitness Friday Blog Hop inspired by Jill at Life as I See it [Fitness, Health & Happiness].

Life As I See It [Fitness, Health and Happiness]

This week I am going to focus on a workout that can be sued while you are on vacation and don't have access to a gym. The workout is called crank or crazy eights because you do eight exercises for eight reps and eight times through and trust me this is a killer workout!

The eight exercises are:

Burpees with a jump squat
Mountain Climbers - 16 total
High Knee Run - 16 total
Arm Jumps - Heels to butt - side to side - on your arms...x8 total
Spiderman Jumps x 8
Prone Jacks x 8

I usually time myself so and write it down so that I can keep track of my improvements. I will be away in a few weeks and I plan to do this workout several times and pair it with some running to keep myself in shape while I am away.

Don't forget to join in on the Fitness Friday Blog Hop.

  7. Great vacation workout plan. And the fact that you have a vacation workout plan is awesome! My family thought I was crazy for taking P90X with me on vacation LOL

  8. If you have a laptop and some wifi I find exercise videos to be a great option on vacation. They're usually short and to the point, and with free sites like exercisetv, they're easy to find. Plop the laptop on a desk or bed and follow along.
