    I just did my first Crossfit last night, apart from the 'box' (see I'm a pro already) being all men, it was good fun. Before that I got a load of ideas from nerdfitness.com, maybe that could help you?

    So true! I do Crossfit 4x a week and love my gym! It has a family mentality which is one of the reasons that I keep going.

    You're lucky it has showers! Many boxes don't.

    Monday: Run 2-3 miles, 5x5 squats, 5x5 deadlifts
    Tuesday: Run 5x 150m sprints, bench 5x5, pullups 5x3, push press 5x8 (65lbs)
    Wednesday: Run if I feel like it, hockey practice (1hr)
    Thursday: 4 sets of-- 30 overhead lunges (25lbs), 50 full bw squats, 10 knees-to-elbows, usually takes about 20 minutes
    Friday: Run a mile, climbing in the gym for a couple hours, maybe lift a little (high reps, low weight) if I feel like it)
    Saturday/Sunday: hiking or doing something outside, otherwise cardio for an hour or so, or maybe the WOD off CrossFit.com

    It's not the heat, it's the stupidity.

    Except for my morning walk 5x/wk, I don't really have a schedule. Some crunches. Some squats, some "girl" pushups. Some resistance. I like occasionally lifting my living room chairs because it's an uneven movement, so I have to be careful, and because they're heavy and I use a lot of muscles. Some calf work using the edge of my stairs.

    But not really a schedule. I write it down so I don't completely avoid the things I like least (pushups), but it's pretty much do what I feel like. Sometimes I'll just turn on music and dance around the apartment 'til I'm sweaty.
