Top 10 CrossFit WODs for at Home
CrossFit is a power and conditioning program consisting mainly of a mix of aerobic exercise, Olympic weightlifting, and gymnastics. Usually CrossFit exercises can be pretty intense. They test the limits of your speed, strength, and endurance. However, holiday, travel, and other seasonal obligations can put a hindrance on even the best-laid training plans and it can be pretty difficult to make it to the gym.
However, you do a number of different CrossFit WODs at home so you can stay in shape even during the holidays.
But don’t worry, because here are some suggestions that will help you retain your daily workout regime anywhere when away from the gym. They can be performed at home with only a few key pieces of equipment. For some advice on setting this up, please see: Setting up a CrossFit Gym in your Garage.

It’s easier than ever to work out at home.
CrossFit Wod at Home #1
Perform each of the drills mentioned below for the prescribed number of repetitions for 10 minutes. Once you complete each exercise, start back at the beginning. Try to get through as many rounds as you can without taking a rest. Keep count of how many rounds you can get so that you can outdo your own records next time. You can use a CrossFit journal to keep track of your progress.
- Burpees – 20 reps
- Sit-ups – 30 reps
- Air squats – 30 reps
Daily WOD at Home #2
Go through all four exercises described below to complete one round. Do the exercises without stopping. Rest minimally between rounds if possible. Try to finish five rounds.
- Handstand push-ups – 10 reps
- Jumping lunges – 5 reps per leg
- Sprint – 200 meters
- Mountain climbers – 15 reps
You can perform handstand push-ups on the outside of your home, against a wall or fence. If you are unable to do that, just do regular push-ups. If you have no way to measure 200 meters, just run fast for 30 seconds.
CrossFit Wod to do at Home #3
You’ll do this exercise minute by minute, so all four exercises should take four minutes.
- Burpees – 10 reps
- Box jumps – 15 reps
- Burpees – 10 reps
- Kettlebell swings – 10 reps
For the first minute, you can do 10 burpees in 60 seconds. If you complete the 10 burpees and still have time, you can rest until the second minute starts. Then, do 15 box jumps. Jump on a bench or up a step if you don’t have a box. Try to finish 15 jumps in one minute. If you can do all 15 reps within the stipulated time, then you can rest and wait for minute three to begin. If you can’t, start the kettlebell swings when the clock strikes the third minute. Now perform 20 kettlebell swings. At minute four you’ll go back to burpees.
Practice in this way for 20 minutes. Eventually, you’ll have completed five sets on these exercises.
This workout may seem not so difficult because you have some rest periods, but as you get exhausted those rest periods will keep getting shorter.
p.s. Check out some of our top recommendations for an adjustable kettlebell. It’s ideal for a home gym.
Best CrossFit Workouts for Home #4:
If you’re not used to running quickly for a prolonged period of time, this training will probably be a bit tough. But it’s excellent if you want to push yourself to the limit.
- Run – 700 meters
- Sit-ups – 150 reps
- Air squats – 100 rep
- Push-ups – 50 reps
- Run – 700 meters
The strategy is to keep moving. Double everything if you an even more serious workout. Or, you can do the run in between each of the other exercises. For example: Run, sit-ups, run, air squats, run, push-ups, run. This is one of the best CrossFit WODs you can do at home if you’re looking to increase your speed and agility.
Home CrossFit Wod #5
Below is another suggestion for a CrossFit at home workout. Try to complete one round as quickly as possible. Then, do the complete circuit four more times, for a total of 5 rounds. Complete it as quickly as possible.
- Alternating pistol squats – 10 reps
- Push-ups – 10 reps
- Box jumps – 10 reps
- Pull-ups – 10 reps
- Sit-ups – 10 reps
Pistol squats are a fairly cutting-edge movement, but you can perform them by holding onto a wall for balance or using a counterweight. If you are unable to do pull-ups, just omit them from the regime and perform the other four exercises.

Complete 4 rounds for time:
