Breast Cancer Awareness Month

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. My CrossFit box teams up with an organization called Sweat Angels and this month all the donations go towards Barbells for Boobs. I know that with each workout I do I am giving to this wonderful organization but I wanted to go a bit further and do a little bit more. 

So in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I am going to donate $1 towards Breast Cancer Research for every pink headband purchased in October! At the end of the month I am hoping to write a big check to the National Breast Cancer Foundation, Inc. 

There are so many runs and walks throughout the month dedicated towards breast cancer survivors and fighters, making any of the pink headbands perfect for the events! Personally, I think that the Breast Cancer Pink Headband would make a sweet gift for the fighter or survivor in your life.

Thank you!

5 At-Home CrossFit Workouts

Being a college student and working makes it difficult to get to my CrossFit box every day to do a workout but I try to get in there at least 4 days a week. The days that I can't make it to any classes I still try to accomplish something at home. While I can't mimic every WOD that they do at the box at home due to a lack of equipment, I can still make up some of my own to get my blood flowing.

I have come up with a few workouts that the only equipment you need is yourself and they are sure to get your blood flowing! These are perfect for the days you can't make it to the gym or are traveling on the road. (Be sure to do some type of warm-up before doing a workout to reduce the risk of injury!)

Each exercise is 6 rounds of 20 seconds work, 10 seconds rest. Take a one minute rest between exercises.

1. Air squats
     - rest 1 minute
2. Push-ups

3. Lunges
     - rest 1 minute
