“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), who originally posted this WOD on their website as their workout of the day for April 3, 2017. The post said the top scores that day were 9:50, 11:53, 13:14 (male); 9:39, 15:25, 15:49 (female).
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.”
It instantly became one of the most popular bodyweight (no equipment) workouts on WODwell.
