  • AMRAP in 20 minutes
  • Pull a random card and perform the number of reps of the corresponding movement for that card.
  • Hearts = Push-Ups
  • Spades = Jump Lunges
  • Diamonds = Sit-Ups
  • Clubs = Air Squats
  • Jokers = 15 Burpees
  • Aces = 1 rep
  • Jack = 11
  • Queen = 12
  • King = 13 reps

Start a 20-minute clock and immediately pull a random card from the deck. Perform the number of reps of the corresponding movement for that card. For example, if you draw 7 of Spades, perform 7 Jump Lunges. Draw another card and perform the corresponding movements as many rounds as possible in 20 minutes.

Don’t have a deck of cards handy? Check out the ‘Draw a Card’ app (iOS)‘.

Score is the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute clock expires.

Background: In the wake of the 2020 COVID-19 pandemic, CrossFit Games athlete Samantha Briggs @bicepslikebriggs posted a modified version of the classic “Deck of Death” WOD, suggesting movements that require no equipment, that anyone quarantined or “sheltering in place” could do at home.

Briggs added, “Make things more fun by FaceTiming a friend, take it in turn to pick a card and the other person has to perform the movement! Keep taking it in turn for the full 20 minutes!” In her post she said she had plans [on March 17, 2020] to FaceTime friend and fellow CrossFit Games Champion Tia Clair Toomey @tiaclair1 to challenge her to the Deck of Fitness “game.”
