Resistance Band Warmup
“Deck of Cards”
Go through the entire deck as an individual or partner (social distance of course) in intervals of 4 minutes work and 2 minutes rest.
Spades – Goblet Squats
Clubs – Burpees
Diamonds – Sit-Ups
Hearts – Single Arm DB Snatches
Rules are simple. Start with a full 52 card deck of cards. If you draw a spade you do the number of Goblet Squats that’s on the card. You can do this workout alone or with a partner but either way you should have an absolute cap of 20 minutes including the rest intervals.
One of the most basic rules of exercise science is, As the length of workout increases, intensity decreases. Combine that with the definition of CrossFit, “Constantly Varied Functional Movements Performed at High Intensity” you have a methodology that favors short to the middle time range workouts and one of the best ways to increase duration without losing intensity is intervals such as 4 minutes work 2 minutes rest or even 4 minutes work and 4 minutes rest.
Are individual workouts in the 25-30 minute time domain a bad thing. The answer isn’t super simple but taking 25 minutes to do a workout with a 15 or 20-minute cap is making finishing the workout at Rx more important than the intensity of which the workout was written for.
So stay with the intervals and cap it at 20.

Home workout with full gym.
Max Effort Overhead Squat
5 Bar Muscle-ups
10 Overhead Squats (95/65)
15 Deadlifts (95/65)
Yes, these are light deadlifts and as such will be a challenge to your mechanics because of the temptation to rush the lift. Think mechanics and technique first and speed and load second.
Also if you need to scale the overhead squats use the same weight for the deadlifts.
