GO Green Fit: Legless Row, Deficit Push-Ups

This workout routine is another tough one, but if your workout is easy chances are you won’t be seeing a lot of results. Here, our trainer combines a 10 calorie legless row, 15 kettlebell swings, and 20 deficit push-ups. As with all crossfit exercises, strength plays a big part in this routine. Our trainer is doing 4 sets with 3 minutes of rest between them. You’ll need the break, but your upper body will feel stronger in no time.

Push-ups are basically the standard when it comes to toning your chest. They don’t require any weights and you can do them virtually anywhere. The trainer’s feet appear to be elevated and the motion is more of a dip. This is a more strenuous version of the typical push-up, and the higher your feet are, the more work you’ll upper body will have to do. If you find these too difficult, stick to a normal push-up and build up your strength until you can pull this off. The legless row will work your arms and back. But for this one, form is important. Try to not use your legs and you’ll feel a burn when it is done right.
