Happy Move-it-Monday purely fit friends!

How was your weekend? Did you watch the Superbowl? We did and got bored very quickly. Anyone else? Did you do any food prep yesterday?  Our weekend was great with a mix of work and play. We enjoyed having a coffee date at Starbucks and warmer weather. Love going to a different location sometimes to change up the working from home scenery. And ran into another Vizsla owner. Love talking with other Vizsla dog owners. Nerd alert. We also managed to do some food prep. Didn’t finish, but plan to finish it today.

And starting today through Feb. 15 if you are a current purely fit life club member or if you sign up within these two weeks you get a special discount code to purchase yourself one of our all time favorite sports bras. You will receive an email soon with the details!

Purely twins crazy skater 12 minute amrap full body workout.

Crazy skater?!?


Let us explain.

plank twist purely training workout

We wanted to do something fun for 12 minutes and see how many reps of this move we could do. We went back and forth deciding what the exact move would be.

We were looking for an exercise move that was fun yet worked the entire body.  We wanted to have some jumping, some twisting, some weights and some bodyweight action all in one.

And that brought us to our crazy skater.

plank twist

It might look complicated but promise it’s not! And did we mention it’s a lot of fun 😉

You will need a free weight or something for a little resistance for this workout.

You can control the intensity of the workout by how heavy the weight you use and how fast you move through the exercise. You’re in control! Isn’t that just so empowering?!? Knowing you have the choice at how hard you will push yourself when you workout. We think so.

Here is your crazy skater workout breakdown:

Variations for fitness levels:

Beginners –  Go at a slower pace. Use light weights (or kettlebell or even a water bottle or a milk jug (remember to keep lid on). If the jump lunges are too much – just step back and forward. Omit the jump part.

Advanced – Push yourself with using heavy weights. Go for speed.

Busy People – Go heavy again with the weights and do just 5 or 6 minutes. No breaks. Push hard.

Watch the video as we explain better how to do the crazy skater workout 🙂

  4. Can’t wait to try this one when I get home tonight. Quick question, and I’m sorry if this is a question you’ve already answered somewhere on your blog, but what type of fitness mats do you use? I’m looking for some mats to perfect my home gym, and those look nice and rubbery. The one I have right now seems foam based, and it slides around sometimes on my hardwoods when I’m jumping around.

    1. the black mats used in our workout videos are from Dick’s Sporting goods store in their fitness department. They can slide around a little the more soft ones, but we then have one large heavier rubber based one too that is in the videos that does not move but not as soft to land on.
