12 CrossFit Workouts You Can Do At Home

CrossFitters are some of the most intense workout junkies around — but even the most dedicated WOD-disciple won't be able to get into the gym every single day.

For those of you who aren't exactly sure what that means, don't worry. WOD, in CrossFit parlance, means Workout of the Day. When it comes time to get sweaty in the box (CrossFit gym, natch), the WOD serves as a set of instructions for the physical challenge you're tasked to complete.

Most of the time, you'll have to use equipment like barbells, kettlebells, ropes, and more to complete your WOD — CrossFit programming is built around Olympic-style lifts like cleans, presses, and snatches. But every so often, the implements take a back seat to more basic physical challenges.

Skip out on the big weights and barbells and check out these CrossFit workouts to do at home — and beginners, think about checking out these workout styles before you step foot in a box. You'll need basic implements like a jump rope and pull-up bar for a few of the WODs, but most of them can be completed with just your bodyweight.

If you're just starting out in the CrossFit world, don't be afraid to adjust any of the workouts for reps or time.

The Workouts

Walls to Knees

20 minutes, as many rounds as possible (AMRAP)

10 strict knees-to-elbows
3 wall walks
Set a timer for 20 minutes. Complete as many rounds as possible before the clock runs out. If you're struggling to finish many rounds at all, try scaling down with a 15 minute AMRAP of 10 hanging knee raises and 50-foot bear crawls. 

You'll need a pullup bar for this WOD — check this one out if you don't have one at home.

Lunge Ball Burner

For time

100-m walking lunge
100 push-ups
100 medicine-ball cleans
100 pull-ups
100-m walking lunge
Set a timer and see how quickly you can finish the circuit using proper form. Shoot for a time under 30 minutes, according to feedback from the community on

The Burpee Sprint Maxout

5 2-minute rounds

Give your all during your reps, then rest for 3 minutes between rounds.

2-Minute Burpee Burnout

20 minutes AMRAP

10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

Every minute on the minute (EMOM) for 30 minutes

5 pull-ups
10 push-ups
15 squats
For CrossFit newbies, EMOM means that you'll perform a round of the exercises at the start of every minute, resting until the start of the next 60 seconds. That will get harder, and eventually you might not have any time to rest.

If you start running behind the clock, finish out the period at your own pace, counting the number of rounds you can get in before the timer sounds.


Descending rounds of 50-40-30-20-10 reps

You'll need a jump rope for the double-unders. To perform situps per CrossFit specs, put the soles of your feet together and reach your arms back over your head on each rep.


For time

100 pullups
100 pushups
100 situps
100 squats
If the century mark proves to be too much, scale the pullups and pushups down to 60 reps. Aim to finish in 20 minutes for a respectable mark, according to


5 rounds for time

20 pullups
40 pushups
60 squats
Set a timer and rip through 5 rounds of this workout. Beginners can aim to finish in 30 minutes, according to
