Bruce’s Beach – Manhattan Beach, CA


I had a short and awesome stint living in Southern California, Venice Beach to be exact. I made a friend for life during that time and he turned me on to a park in Manhattan Beach that is great for workouts near the beach.  Better yet, there’s a set of pull up bars near the beach.



We’ve done all sorts of workouts here. During one of my more recent visits we did the MARSOC short card:

1. 30 Push-ups
2. 30 Air squats
3. 30 Crunches
4. 10 Burpees
5. 10 Windmills
6. 30 Push-ups
7. 30 Mountain climbers
8. 30 Flutter kicks
9. 10 Burpees
10. 10 Cherry pickers (4-count)
11. 30 Push-ups
12. 30 Star jumpers (or jumping jacks)
13. 30 Back Extensions (“supermans”)
14. 10 Burpees
15. 10 Chain breakers
16. 30 Push-ups
17. 30 Lunges
18. 30 Hello dollies
19. 10 Burpees
20. 10 Trunk twists
21. 3 Max sets of dead-hang pull-ups or flexed-arm hangs

Long card anyone? Not I. But go nuts.

I’ve dropped in at Crossfit Beach Box and LAX Crossfit. Will share those posts in the future.
