Today CrossFit is a worldwide fitness program that involves strength and conditioning of the body. The training program incorporates everything from a casual jog or sprint to high-intensity weightlifting or squatting. “Workout of the Day” is what is meant when the word WOD is uttered.
And in today’s world, working out is as necessary as taking one’s daily cup of tea. This daily fitness regime does not only demand total dedication, determination, and enthusiasm, but also a suitable regimen of working out so that your body can get maximum effectiveness from the workout regimen.
Although functional conditioning of the body usually deals with individual action and personal development both mentally and physically, not every drill involves only one person.
Partner CrossFit workouts are frequent in almost all gyms, and a superb way to build up relationships in the gymnasiums while at the same time enjoying to the fullest with others who are working out.
There are a number of variant partner WODs, starting from the ones involving two athletes to those that engage each member of the gym.
Check out the best CrossFit Partner Workouts
Below are some of the best partner workouts that you can try.
Every team has a “pet rock,” which could be a medicine ball, heavy plate, or kettlebell. The pet rock is not supposed to come in contact with the ground during the whole drill. So at the same time as a partner is approaching and taking care of the workout, the other one is grasping onto a weighty pet rock, until the time they switch over.
Rather be Dead
The following has to be completed as a team of four people split into two teams. There are three rounds, which are to be completed in the form of a relay.
- Front Squats (156/104) – 8
- Sideways Hops – 8
- Deadlifts (246/164) – 8
- Plate Hop Burpees – 8
- Team Sprint m for every 6th minute
Killer of the Crow
Team WOD that consists of four people.
Farmers Carry (71/54) – 600 m (at blow of the whistle each performs 6 Burpees, 2 at a time)
- KB Swings (71/54) – 76 in unison (working two people, resting two people)
- Goblet Squats (71/54) – 76 in unison (working two people, resting two people)
- Jumping Lunges – 76 in unison (four people, all of them stay together)
- Team Run- 500 m with 8 lb rope
This one was intended for just one person, but recently has been modified to make it available even to teams that contain two members. The ideal categorization of Murph is still applicable: 150 pull-ups, 1.5 mile run, 350 air squats, 200 push-ups, and 1.5 mile run. In cooperation, partners commence and finish performing the 1.5 mile run jointly, but in the case of the air squats, push-ups, and pull-ups, it can be completed with only a single partner exercising at a particular time.
Team must consist of four members with each person operational at one time for 50 minutes.
One and all run two miles grasping the rope.
In every other round Cindy has to be performed till the two people complete 20 rounds each.
At one time the following has to be done:
- Run – 2 miles
- Pull-ups – 150
- Push-ups – 150
- Squats – 350
- Run – 2 miles
Thrusters and Rope Climb – At one time the following has to be done:
- Thruster – 100 pound, 20 reps
- Rope Climb – 20 feet, 10 ascents
- Thruster – 120 pounds, 10 reps
- Rope Climb – 20 ft, 10 ascents
- Thruster – 100 pounds, 10 reps
- Rope Climb – 15 ft, 7 ascents
Duck ball in CrossFit
This version adds an extra element to the standard duck ball game. By means of a number of diverse colored balls, the benchmark rules of duck ball are pertained. There is, however, a dissimilarity. That is as soon as you get hit with a ball, you are required to carry out a definite figure of reps before you are authorized to go again and rejoin the game. Let’s take for example the following.
If a red ball hits you, then you are supposed to perform 35 burpees prior to throwing it back. When a blue ball hits you, you are supposed to perform 55 push-ups before throwing it back. And in case of a yellow ball, 80 air squats have to be executed before giving the ball back. When the members of one particular team are pushed to the sideline undertaking reps, the other team is declared the champion.
These are in short some of the top-most CrossFit partner workouts that you can perform with your gym mates or family or friends who are into CrossFit. This will not only strengthen your body and keep you fit but will also enhance your proficiency as a team player, which will help you in other aspects of life apart from being able to start up new bonds.
