CrossFit Crave Halloween Partner WOD
- For Time (with a Partner)
- 75 Lateral Pumpkin Jumps
- 50 Pumpkin Push Presses*
- 100 Pumpkin Goblet Squats*
- 50 Pumpkin Box Jumps* (20 in)
- 75 Pumpkin Squat Cleans*
- * 5 burpee penalty (both partners) each time the "pumpkin" touches the ground
- Use a medicine ball (20/14 lb) as your pumpkin
Break up the work as needed between partners. Start with the “pumpkin” (medicine ball) on the ground for the lateral jumps (over the pumpkin). After the lateral jumps, working partner must have the pumpkin. Partner A must pick the medicine ball up to begin the push presses. When partner A completes their set they must hand the medicine ball to partner B without letting it touch the ground. If either partner drops or puts the medicine ball down at any time (starting with the push-presses through the end of the workout), then both partners must do a 5 burpee penalty each.
About the wod
Background: This “Team Halloween” holiday partner WOD allows athletes to use a medicine ball in lieu of an actual pumpkin. But if you want to use a pumpkin, and don’t mind cleaning it up or stopping mid-WOD to find another one, then absolutely, go for it!
We first found this workout posted by CrossFit Crave @cfcrave (Celina, OH, USA) on their website as their workout of the day (WOD) for November 3, 2012 – a belated celebration of Halloween, which was obviously a few days earlier, on October 31, 2012.
