They are generally longer, harder and more grueling than standard WODs. «JT» takes a slightly different approach than regular CrossFit WODs. Instead of hitting your entire body, it only targets your chest, shoulders and triceps, providing a nasty pump that will also get your heart rate up. This modified version can be done anywhere, making it the perfect CrossFit workout for the home, but you can replace standing pushups with ring dips if you want to try the original workout.

21-15-9 repetitions of:

  • Vertical push-ups
  • Push-ups with raised feet
  • Lift

One place to do pull-ups will literally double your selection of movements and the amount of CrossFit workouts available to you at home.
