CrossFit is all the rage right now and, with its Open competition (aka CrossFit Games) starting just last week, there's even more of a reason to give it a try for yourself.

To further entice you and give you a taste of what CrossFit is all about, here's a WOD ("Workout of the Day") that will work your entire body in just 4 moves.

Try to do as many rounds of the following moves without taking too much time to rest between exercises.

Set a timer for 15 minutes and then start with 15 Kettlebell Swings.

When you finish, move immediately to 10 Burpees, then 15 Air Squats, and finally 10 Push-ups.

When you finish all 4 exercises, you've completed 1 round.

  • Be sure to keep track of your rounds and reps, so the next time you do this workout, you can fully embrace the CrossFit philosophy and try to do more!
  • Here it is in a quick-n-easy list form. Pin it to your fitness board for future reference!

Note: please consult your doctor before starting a new exercise program.
