WOD 5 September: The Big (Friendly) Chipper

05 Sep

A slight change of pace today, as we mixed things up a little.

Gone was the usual CrossFit warm-up of endless squats, push-up and burpees, and in came “Dodgeball”. And I tell you: these guys and gals meant business today. Sure there were smiles and laughter (and squats, push-ups and burpees), but these were a thin mask over the face of pure competitiveness!

Don't let the smiles fool you...

Dodgeball at CrossFit London: Not for the faint of heart…

We followed this up with some work on the snatch balance, aiming to catch the bar in as a deep an overhead squat as possible.

We finished things up with partner WOD called the Big (Friendly) Chipper:

  • 25 Burpees*
  • 100 Squat cleans
  • 40 Push-ups*
  • 100 Bar hops
  • 40 Sit-ups
  • 100 Push-press
  • 2x Alleyway run*

In each case only one partner was working at a time while the other provided “encouragement”. Exercises marked with a * were performed with partners tethered together with a rubber band in order to foster team spirit (and not just ‘cos I was in the mood for messing with folk…)
