Re: CrossFit doesnt work...

The PT test emphasizes situps, pushups, and running, but I don't see that emphasis reflected in your program. Where's the Crossfit Warmup (WFS)? Where are the sprint intervals?

9 lb weighted bars are a waste of everyone's time. 25 lb. bars aren't much better. Even petite women (like me) need more weight than that for any kind of intensity.

If you want to see significant improvements in just eight sessions, you need to jack the intensity way up. See Steve's comments on using short rounds rather than a whole pile of one type of exercise. You might also look at the list of bodyweight workouts in the WOD forum.
