I’m working on a special project with a photographer friend that will depict a pre-wedding CrossFit-style workout for the bride, groom and entire wedding party; it’s going to be awesome!
As part of that I’ve been brainstorming workouts and CrossFit moves that relate to marriage, a wedding, and couples and it’s seriously a fun exercise! (Haha. Get it? Oh, how I love the puns!)
So, whether you’re planning a pre-wedding workout, couples workout or actual wedding WOD, consider any of these awesome approaches to making working out, wedding-relevant!
WOD 1 “The proposal”
Cause he got on bended knee to pop the question!
Now you’ll both be doing knee taps with alternating lunges across the gym (10 meters each way) carrying a bumper plate and building a “cake” on the other end!
Lunge in both directions, one direction carrying a plate that you leave stacked at one end, and one direction empty handed (on the way back).
WOD 2 “[Med]ball and Chain”
The old ball and chain!
Therefore, with a partner:
Repeat three times for a serious workout!
WOD 3 “Teamwork”
A married couple must be able to work together!
Like a three-legged race, tie your legs together and perform the following stationary exercises:
For a good laugh, you could try to complete a burpee together!
Also, check out the graphic below of movements that you can correlate to aspects of marriage below! Use these to create your own wedding WOD!
