Anybody wanna write me a lower body WOD while my elbow heals?

So far I've done Thai kicks and knees followed by 100 flutter kicks and 30 squats when I had someone holding the thai pads for me, and then I did three rounds of 25 box jumps, 50 back extensions, 75 leg lifts and 400m run, and I did 3 rounds of 33 reps situps, walking lunges, squats and good mornings. On the 10th I did "porch" jumps, leg lifts, calf raises, situps, scissor lunges, 800m run and 50-sec superman (which should be the name of a band). Someone wrote me this excellent WOD with scissor lunges, calf raises, sprints and pistols, but the pistols made me fall on my butt. Today I did half-tabatas (8 min total) with squats, situps, flutter kicks and in-place lunges.

Anyways, I am running out of ideas so if anyone has anything... remember I'm still working on level 1 skills so don't give me anything crazy please. :-)

How about this...

Belt squats for strength first. Then:

Tabata protocol-
High knees
stationary bike (calories)
High knees
stationary bike (cals)
Air squats

You can cut the repeat of h-knees and biking if you want. Want more?

Hi Yael,

Did you try the pistols standing on something? It's easier if you don't have to hold the other leg up and the load-bearing leg still gets plenty of work.

Well, I was thinking of trying to do one-legged squats and see how low I can go before trying it again, I'm a bit traumatized. :sad:

Also, if I'm only doing core/lower body WODs, should I be taking extra rest days? It seems like my hammies have been sore nonstop forever.

LOL, Okay, let me rephrase this. I don't want to use my elbow, so I'm looking for lower body WODs. This is because I can't do swings, pushups, burpees, deadlifts, or anything with weights unless I somehow figure out how to strap them to my legs, which I've heard isn't recommended.
