7 Creative Exercises to Keep Your Crossfit Training Constantly Varied

Ever tried lifting with a bamboo bar? The Sotts PULL? Or tested your mobility with overhead Kossack Squats? Add these fun and challenging exercises into your training.

7. NEXT LEVEL COSSACK SQUATS

“Taking Cossack Squats to the next level by using the stick and emphasizing good posture of the upper body and looking straight ahead. The goal is to do it it with a 20kg bar.”

6. WORKOUT FROM SAM DANCER

“10 squat 10 press. Every round lower the bench one click. Mine was 9 total rounds and I used 50# dbs”

5. ABS AND CORE WORKOUT FROM TIA CLAIR TOOMEY

“So here is another core workout I did today as an accessory.
Accumulate 6mins of the following in 8mins;
-2min Plank hold
-2min Side Plank (each side, total 4mins)
*I tried to challenge myself by adding weight and doing it on the boxes but for beginners this can be performed on the ground.”

4. THE SOTTS PULL

A fun and deceptively difficult variation of the famous Sotts press.

3. JEFFERSON CURLS

“Three sets of ten Jefferson Curls to make the hamstrings flexible and the bottom position better. If you have tight hamstrings you are more prone to rounding your lower back in the bottom of the squat.”

2. BAMBOO BAR AND KETTLEBELL THRUSTERS

1. SPLIT SQUAT BAMBOO WORK

The bamboo bar makes everything even more unstable and forces your core and body to work even harder to maintain balance.

About The Author

Editor-In-Chief at BOXROX. I come from a background of rugby and weightlifting. Growing up in the English Lake District, I spent a great deal of time swimming in its stunning lakes and rivers. In 2015 my brothers and I became the first people to swim the 145km length of the River Eden, from source to mouth, in 9 days. We also swam the Corryvreckan whirlpool, the third largest in the world, and Crossfit is a huge part of my training for these events.
