CrossFit Trenches Memorial WOD

5.9K 146
  • AMRAP in 20 minutes
  • 7 Burpee Box Jump Overs (24/20 in)
  • 7 Clean-and-Jerks (135/95 lb)
  • 7 Toes-to-Bars
  • 7 American Kettlebell Swings (70/53 lb)
  • 7 Plyo Push-Ups (45/35 lb plate)

For the plyo push-up, start with your hands on the ground and do an explosive push-up such that your hands leave the ground and end up on top of the plate (that’s one rep). Drop your hands from the plate to the ground and repeat.

This workout requires the use of only one plate for the plyo push-ups (both hands go from the ground onto the same plate).
