Warm up

TrickyFit Warm up video -


Chelsea - is a CrossFit workout and as a certified CrossFit trainer I am aware that this is a real toughy!

Chelsea lasts for 30 minutes and every minute on the minute you are required to complete the following:
  • 5 Chin ups
  • 10 Push ups
  • 15 Squats
This workout is an interval workout designed to work your stamina, power and metabolic conditioning. Each minute you complete the 30 repetitions (5 chin ups, 10 push ups, 15 squats) and then whatever time you have left in the minute is rest time. The Work:Rest ratio is around 2:1 which means that we are working at a high intensity and getting a short recovery. As the exercise takes its toll, the time required to complete the 30 repetitions increases and the recovery period shortens. This workout really does suck. It takes a monster effort and the accomplishment of completing the most continuos minutes you can is an effort that you must be satisfied with after giving your best. If your best is below 30 minutes then you have work to do ... If it is above 30 minutes then your time may look like Chelsea + 2 that is 32 minutes or 2 rounds past the prescribed 30 minutes.

Good Luck and give your all
