7 Engine Building Assault Bike Workouts for Crossfitters

"It doesn’t have to be pretty to be effective" - Rich Froning

The Assault bike should be a part of your training for several reasons.

Not just that it burn a lot of calories, but it can also be used as a useful recovery tool and is helpful when injured. It allows the injured area area to move and provides blood flow.

The bike is also really beneficial for working on your endurance and conditioning. Using the assault bike at high intensity can also boost your mindset as it teaches you how to push yourself through tough workouts when the pain gets real. To make it a little bit harder and even more fun on the bike you can always play with various rest intervals and different calories amounts.

Try adding these WODs into your training:

Workout 1

5 Rounds:

  • 15 cals on the bike
  • 1 unbroken round of DT

Athletes that use the assault bike can expect big increases in their cardiovascular fitness (lower WOD times) and leg power.
