Class Time 7:00am & 8:30
Every Easter season, many CrossFit boxes and/or churches around the world host what is called the Jesus WOD.
The Jesus WOD is done as a means of aligning Christian beliefs physically, mentally, and spiritually. It is not intended to grandstand an athlete’s ability… it is not designed to “measure-up” to what Jesus encountered in His crucifixion… it is not a typical CrossFit workout… and it IS NOT REQUIRED.
The Jesus Wod -
14 rounds for time of:
10 deadlifts (95/65)
10 squat cleans (95/65)
10 push-press (95/65)
50 ft of walking lunges with barbell on back + walk back to starting point
RX Athletes may only “de-load” the barbell from their control during rounds 3, 7, and 9. As these three rounds are completed, the athlete must place the barbell on the ground, pick-up a kettlebell (53/35), and complete 7 Turkish get-ups (for a total of 21 TGUs across the three rounds).
The workout represents the 14 Stations of the Cross and the three time Jesus fell to the ground.
1. Jesus is condemned to death
2. Jesus carries his cross
3. Jesus falls the first time
4. Jesus meets his mother
5. Simon of Cyrene helps Jesus carry the cross
6. Veronica wipes the face of Jesus
7. Jesus falls the second time
8. Jesus meets the women of Jerusalem
9. Jesus falls the third time
10. Jesus is stripped of his garments
11. Crucifixion: Jesus is nailed to the cross
12. Jesus dies on the cross
13.Jesus is taken down from the cross
14. Jesus is laid in the tomb
Please note this Wod has been described as extremely taxing and should not be underestimated - more intense mentally and physically then most CF wods. Athletes should scale to there ability as well as consider partnering to share the burden.
Levels look like this:
M - partner 15# Bar, 8# Turkish get up
LV 1- partner 25#, 10/15# Turkish Get up
LV 2 - partner 35/55, 15/25# Turkish Get up
LV 3 - partner 45/75, 20/35 Turkish Get Up
LV 4 - solo 55/85, 30/45 Turkish Get up
4+ - as prescribed
This Wod will be one to remember and to pay our tribute. I would
Recommend making sure you are well rested,
hydrating and eating well to sustain a Wod that will tax our endurance.
