The Complete Guide to Bodyweight WODs

Barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, wall balls, the list goes on for all the weighted equipment available in most CrossFit boxes. But what if we told you it doesn't always have to be that way? What if we showed you a world where no equipment was used, and, theoretically, you wouldn't even need a box to complete certain WODs.

Yes, it's possible to complete bodyweight WODs, which use nothing but your body weight to offer you a challenge worthy of the CrossFit name. They're by no means easy, even though we're taking away most of the generically "difficult" movements (like Cleans, Dumbbell Snatches, and Kettlebell Swings.

It's time to dive into the world of bodyweight WODs and all the things they can do for you.

What Is A Bodyweight WOD?

The name is fairly self-explanatory, but we'll talk you through it anyway. Everybody has a body, and we use that body in a variety of different ways. In bodyweight WODs, we use our own bodyweight to challenge ourselves and push ourselves to failure in any way possible.

Bodyweight WODs are usually overlooked by most box-goers and written off as the easiest of the bunch. However, you'll soon find that the more bodyweight WODs you do, the more you'll accept that they can be the evilest of the bunch.

We'll admit that sometimes bodyweight WODs are easier, and that's by design. We include "easier" WODs as bodyweight WODs to allow most CrossFitters a chance to recover from the workout and be prepared for whatever comes next. Not touching a barbell, dumbbell, or other weighted equipment is one of the best ways to recover since you'll only be burning yourself out based on your own weight rather than any additional ones.

The Types Of Bodyweight WODs

We can't strictly tell you how to pace a bodyweight WOD because there isn't one type that rules them all. Instead, it's possible to do a bodyweight WOD for just about any well-known CrossFit style (EMOM, AMRAP, RFT, etc.).

The same rules always apply no matter what bodyweight WOD you're doing. If you're doing an EMOM, you follow the EMOM structure, and likewise with an AMRAP or a Chipper.

Bodyweight WODs are one of the most versatile WOD types out there. You're only limited by what you're own body is capable of. Of course, scaling options come down to how well you can do a particular movement (i.e., Kneeling Push-ups or Elevated Hand Push-ups) rather than simply removing weights from a barbell or picking a lighter kettlebell.

There are always scaling options available to you, though, which is what makes bodyweight movements so great to learn and master.

The Fundamental Bodyweight Movements

If you want to give bodyweight WODs a try, you'll want to ensure you've got the fundamentals down. There are always scaling options, but it will help if you have the minimum capacity to do the following:

Air Squats

Air Squats are the most accessible bodyweight movement of them all. Most people can do some level of an Air Squat, and you can scale them according to your mobility and strength levels. If you can't hit full squat depth, you can do half squats. If you don't have the strength to maintain loads of reps, you can scale them back; that's what makes Air Squats so great.

Push-ups & Scaling Options

Push-ups are a little harder for some people. You don't need a full Push-up before you can comfortably do bodyweight WODs as there are plenty of scaling options, though a Push-up is a key factor in whether you can Rx or not. With scaling options, you might find doing Push-ups on your knees or with your hands on a box slightly easier for you (until you're ready to move up a level).

The fundamentals are what we need before we consider going more in-depth with bodyweight WODs. Each one can progress to make them harder, so as long as you've got the base down, you'll be in good shape for a truly challenging bodyweight WOD.

Some of the progressions of each movement include:

  • Air Squat : Jump Squat : Pistol Squat
  • Push-up : Ring Dip : Handstand Push-up

Example Bodyweight WODs For Different Modalities

Bodyweight WODs are limited by your own body and abilities, but that doesn't mean they're limited with choices. This list will show you just how versatile they can be. Of course, since bodyweight WODs use our bodyweight and nothing else, that means we can't cover the usual Weightlifting Modality.

(in)Famous Bodyweight WODs

Just like every other type of CrossFit WOD, bodyweight WODs are no strangers to the (in)famous treatment! We can find plenty of challenging (and sickening) bodyweight WODs if we know where to look for them! Here are just a few of the best ones:

Zachary Tellier

For Time:

10 Burpees
10 Burpees
25 Push-ups
10 Burpees
25 Push-ups
50 Lunges
10 Burpees
25 Push-ups
50 Lunges
100 Sit-Ups
10 Burpees
25 Push-ups
50 Lunges
100 Sit-Ups
150 Air Squats

Zachary Tellier looks relatively easy on paper, but in practice, it adds up quickly. The idea is to complete the rounds starting with 10 Burpees, then do them again, adding 25 Push-ups to the mix. Then you repeat and add a new movement to the list, and so on until you complete it.

Here’s a video of the Zachary Tellier WOD in action. It catches up to you quickly:

The Longest Mile

4 Rounds For Time:

10 Burpees
100 metre Run
10 Air Squats
100 metre Run
10 Push-ups
100 metre Run
10 Sit-Ups
100 metre Run

If you can work out how much you're running across the four rounds, you'll notice that it equals 1,600 metres, which is a mile. So, you're running a mile in sixteen intervals, each one with a different movement between them to keep the challenge up. It gets tough quickly, and we don't recommend you sprint the 100 metres!

This video is a great example of what The Longest Mile looks like:

The Migraine

1000m Run
100 Double Unders
900m Run
90 Double Unders
800m Run
80 Double Unders
Etc.

The Migraine uses the Rowing machine in place of running, but we feel like the added bodyweight challenge of including running makes this workout all the more (in)famous. You'll have to be patient with this one and work at a good pace that allows you to perform Double Unders consistently while managing fatigue.

Cindy's Cousin

20 Minute AMRAP:

5 Burpees
10 Push-ups
15 Air Squats

Cindy is an AMRAP featuring Pull-Ups, but we wanted to showcase Cindy's Cousin, which allows those of us without access to a rig to perform the workout. Trust us, this one is just as hard (if not harder) than Cindy because Burpees take an awful lot more effort than Pull-Ups.

Cindy’s Cousin is no cakewalk, and this video shows that:

It's A Trap

100 Burpees For Time
E2MOM Starting at 0: 200m Run

If 100 Burpees weren't bad enough, imagine doing them with a 200m Run in between every 2 minutes. 200 metres take up a hefty chunk of 2 minutes for most people, maybe giving you half of that time left over to complete the Burpees. You keep working until the Burpees are complete, but you're going to need to keep a high intensity for this one.

Here's a nice cut of the It’s A Trap WOD that shows you how tricky it can get:

Benefits Of Bodyweight WODs

Bodyweight WODs are a great choice for anyone looking to program simple but effective workouts. You don't need a lot of equipment, and you don't need a lot of creativity, as long as you follow the fundamentals for what makes a good workout! The list of benefits is endless for bodyweight WODs.

Safe

It should be no surprise that bodyweight WODs are safe, and they're by far the safest option compared with any other WOD out there. Simply removing external equipment, like bars, dumbbells, and machines makes it much easier to focus on the efficiency of the way you move your body.

You'll never have a heavy weight fall on top of you or put you into a compromising position; instead, it's all based on what your body can do and how well you can move it.

Accessibility

One of the best parts of bodyweight WODs is their accessibility. You don't even need a CrossFit box to do them. All you need is ample space to perform the movement and a can-do attitude. If you have those, you can do a bodyweight WOD just about anywhere.

Also, every single bodyweight movement has a great scaling option, making them easier for people to develop over time. If a workout calls for Push-ups and you don't have them yet, you don't have to worry, as they'll come over time if you keep working towards them with the scaled variants.

Quality

When you don't use bars or weights, it's much easier to focus on the quality and control of your reps. With that, you can learn how to efficiently move your body in an Air Squat, which translates remarkably well to Thrusters, Front Squats, and even Snatches. You can learn how to control Push-ups, which builds capacity and strength in the Push Jerk, Split Jerk, and Bench Press.

Just because you're not using weight doesn't mean that you're not getting better at the movements. You're just working through a different medium until you've got the quality to back it up.

Drawbacks of Bodyweight WODs

While versatile, bodyweight WODs do struggle where other WODs thrive. It's no secret that most CrossFit boxes try to steer clear of 100% body weight workouts because they know their members won't be best pleased coming into a box knowing they could have stayed at home and done the workout there.

Limited Movements

While bodyweight WODs aren't nearly as limited as you might first think, you're still removing the entire weightlifting modality because you're not touching a single weight. To some people, that's enough of a turn-off to stop them from wanting to do bodyweight WODs altogether.

Generally, people also don't like how you can only do upper body or lower body pushing, and the pulling possibilities are limited too. While Pull-Ups are technically bodyweight movements, you still need a rig to perform them, which is why we haven't included them in this article.

Not As Exciting

We're a long way from calling bodyweight WODs boring. We've had plenty of fun with the ones we've performed before, and we know you will too. With that said, it's easy to think that bodyweight WODs lack a certain level of excitement, especially if you thrive with heavy barbells or high rep efficiency-driven movements.

If all you ever do are bodyweight WODs, you'll undoubtedly tire of the same old story. We recommend you throw them in once every few weeks to keep things fresh, and you'll never consider them boring.

How To Program Your Own Bodyweight WOD

Bodyweight WODs are great tools to include in your programming. They're also really easy to implement and create yourself since you don't need to worry too much about the movements you include. As long as you're getting a decent amount of antagonist muscle groups moving, you're on the right track.

A good bodyweight WOD utilizes many different muscle groups or methods while keeping the heart rate high and the intensity up. You'll often see Push-ups without Handstand Push-ups in the same WOD (or vice versa) because they use the same pushing muscles and will work against each other as time goes on.

The same goes for Air Squats and Jump Squats. While both movements vary slightly (Jump Squats being more explosive), you'll end up fatiguing your squatting muscles, which you'll save yourself from doing if you implement Lunges or Burpees instead of them.

A good bodyweight WOD takes all that into consideration and comes up with something like this:

4 Rounds For Time
20 Push-ups
20 Air Squats
20 Burpees
20 Lunges

We kept it simple, but we wanted to explain what we did. Firstly, the workout is only four rounds, making it a quick workout that should be completed between 15 and 20 minutes. We also kept every movement to twenty reps, making it easy to count and pace with.

Push-ups and Burpees use similar pushing movements from the floor, but Push-ups are much more controlled, while Burpees allow for some explosive energy to come out. You won't often fatigue your triceps and chest in Burpees like you will in Push-ups, which is why we included them.

Air Squats and Lunges both use your quads and legs to drive you up and down, but they work in different ways. Air Squats focus on both legs pushing at once. At the same time, Lunges give you an interesting challenge to try and work your legs independently, which helps you practice resting in the lunge position and working on recovery before you squat again.

Summary

Bodyweight WODs might seem trivial to some, but they're worth including. They're perfect for anyone looking to improve their efficiency, stamina, and capacity with most movements, and they transition incredibly well to the weighted stuff.

We'd say that if you're still looking to improve at CrossFit, it's wise to include bodyweight WODs once or twice every week. Since most people are still working on their skills and efficiency, and no one is a true CrossFit "master", that means bodyweight WODs will work perfectly for you too. Yes, all of you. No one is above a bodyweight WOD!
