“It’s a Trap!”
CrossFit Darkside Benchmark WOD
- For Time
- 100 Burpees
- 200 meter Run to start, then again every 2 minutes
The workout begins with a 200 meter run. Then perform burpees until the 2:00 mark and run another 200 meters. So, athletes will run on minutes: 0, 2, 4, 6, etc. and perform burpees in the remaining time until the next 2 minute mark is reached…until 100 burpees are completed.
Score is the time on the clock when the last rep of burpees is completed.
About the wod
Background: “It’s a Trap!” is a benchmark WOD from CrossFit Darkside @crossfit_darkside (El Cajon, CA, USA). They originally posted this WOD on their website as the workout of the day for April 3, 2017. The top 3 male scores that day were 9:50, 11:53, 13:14; female: 9:39, 15:25, 15:49.
The workout was designed by Coach Corey Brinkley, who submitted it to us. Corey said, “Burpees being a movement that is universally hated, we wanted to create a workout where you are rewarded for keeping the burpee intensity high. The reward is less running! The “It’s A Trap” name came from the coaches repeatedly saying during the workout explanation that you can dig yourself into a big hole if you don’t push hard and you’re only getting a few burpees each round.”
