A Fun Idea For A WOD

My friend and I used to do this before we even heard about Crossfit, but it definitely has a Crossfit feeling.


Grab a deck of playing cards.
The suit represents the exercise. (i.e. Hearts=Burpees)
The number represents the reps. (Jack=11 Queen=12 King=13 Ace=14)
Jokers=5 reps of each exercise

You can fill the in the suit/exercise combos with whatever you want. We usually did something along the lines of:

Spades=Situps

Hearts (because you love them)=Burpees (with the pushup at the bottom and jump at the top)

Clubs=Squats

Diamonds= Kettlebell Swings

Other options could be DU, HSPU, Lunges, Knees to Elbows, Regular Pushups, Etc.

You end up doing 114 reps of each exercise. Just pray you don't pull too many hearts in a row.

If its too easy for you, go through the deck multiple times!

Re: A Fun Idea For A WOD

um... I believe this WOD is called "Deck of Cards" and is a CrossFit standard at many affiliates. There are many variations, but nothing new.

Re: A Fun Idea For A WOD

There is a crossfit version of that I think, at least we did it on our box... Jokers were 400m runs, JKQ were walking lounges and aces were DUs... It was the meanest thing I've ever done haha

Hi,

I created a spreadsheet to do this: http://www.statisticool.com/deckexample.xls (safe for work, family, etc.)

Edit as required,

Justin

Re: A Fun Idea For A WOD

SEALFit version has 1 mile runs, there is also a "core" version with mtn climbers, flutter kicks and stuff.

And yes, it is always done for time. My last time was around 23 minutes with pull ups, push ups, squats and sit ups, and 1 mile runs for the jokers.
