10 Effective Fat Burning Crossfit Workouts You Can Do at Home

Posted on

We understand if you can’t make it to the gym on certain days. But that’s still no excuse to skip your workout altogether.

And while CrossFit workouts are known for incorporating lots of equipment, you can do plenty of CrossFit workouts—fast-paced, calorie-burning, and compact—right in your home or hotel room.

Here, Tyler Manzo of Brick New York shares 10 brutal CrossFit workouts you can do wherever, so you always have some workout inspiration when you can’t get out of the house.  All you need is a pullup bar, and plenty of willpower.

Workout 1: 6-round Bodyweight WOD

Do 6 rounds of:

  • 10 Pushups
  • 15 V-Ups
  • 20 Jumping Air Squat

“Hit this workout hard and as fast as you can,” says Manzo. “It’s going to be a fight.”

Workout 2: 16-minute AMRAP

In 16 minutes, do as many rounds as possible (AMRAP) of:

  • 10 Burpees
  • 10 Pullups
  • 20 Lunges
  • 20 Situps

“This will be a grind. Have a good solid warm up, then get right into it,” says Manzo.

Workout 3: 20-minute EMOM

This workout follows an every-minute-on-the-minute (EMOM) pattern. Do the prescribed exercises at the start of each minute, and then rest for the remainder of each minute. Do this pattern five times, for 20 total minutes.

  • Minute 1: 15 Pushups
  • Minute 2: 10 Pullups
  • Minute 3: 15 Situps
  • Minute 4: 20 Lunges

“Work hard to hit that goal in the minute and enjoy the rest until the next!” says Manzo.

Workout 4: Ten to One

This workout uses an ascending/descending rep scheme. On your first “round,” you’ll do 10 burpees and 1 pullup. The next round, you’ll do 9 burpees and 2 pullups, and so on until you finish at 10 pullups and 1 burpee.

  • Burpees: 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1
  • Pullups: 1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10

Try to rest as little as possible between rounds.

Workout 5: 10 rounds of 20

Do 10 rounds of the following:

  • 20 Mountain Climbers
  • 20 Situps
  • 20 Air squats
  • 20 Lunges

“Who doesn’t want a core and leg burner?” says Manzo. “This will have you sweating and your legs burning.”

Workout 6: Murph

“Murph,” a Memorial Day staple at American CrossFit boxes and easily one of the most grueling CrossFit WODs imagineable, can easily be done anywhere with a pullup bar.

  • 1-mile Run
  • 100 Pullups
  • 200 Pushups
  • 300 Air Squat
  • 1-mile Run

You may break up the pullups, pushups, and air squats as you see fit. Many CrossFitters do it in segments of 5 pullups, 10 pushups, and 15 squats. Another option is 5 pullups, 5 pushups, 15 squats, and 5 pushups.

Professional CrossFitters will do this workout with a 20-lb weight vest, but that’s optional (and probably discouraged for anyone doing this workout for the first time).

“[This is] the best CrossFit classic WOD,” opines Manzo.

Workout 7: 7-minute AMRAP

In seven minutes, do as many rounds as possible of the following:

  • 10 Lunges
  • 10 Mountain Climbers
  • 10 Pushups

“Enjoy the rest and hit the AMRAPs hard and fast,” says Manzo.

Workout 8: 16-minute Upper-Body AMRAP

In 16 minutes, do as many rounds as possible (AMRAP) of:

  • 8 Burpees
  • 8 Pushups
  • 16 Pullups
  • 16 Hanging Knee Tucks or Situps

“It’s going to be an upper-body killer,” says Manzo.

Workout 9: Full-throttle AMRAP

In 20 minutes, do as many rounds as possible (AMRAP) of:

  • 21 Jumping Air Squats
  • 15 Pushups
  • 9 Burpee Pullups (Grab the pullup bar at the top of the burpee jump and finish the pullup.)

“Watch—those air squats will catch up on you,” says Manzo.

Workout 10: High-rep Bodyweight Classic

Do eight rounds of the following:

  • 10 Pushups
  • 10 Air Squats
  • 10 Burpees
  • 10 Air Squats

Rest as little as possible between rounds. “High reps equal a great aerobic workout,” says Manzo.
