12 days of CrossFit Southie- CFS

Gill – Mel – Liz

The much anticipated 12 Days of CrossFit Southie WOD will be run today during all classes. I created this workout back in 2008. I gave this workout to Patrick Padgett in a card as a Christmas present that year and it is one of my favorite memories of our friendship, as we battled it out together every year up until last year. I know he will be right by my side again this year pushing me to move faster than ever.

Amy and I also started doing it with our personal training clients years before CrossFit Southie existed. I have seen other versions floating around, but this one is authentic to CFS! Year after year, It is great to see a lot of people giving it a first time go, and then others coming back for a second and third time.
Looking forward to kicking off the holiday season right with the 12 days and hope you all will join us. All are welcome.

WOD
“12 Days of CrossFit Southie“
1 Thruster in a Burpee (115, 80)
2 Turkish Get ups (1.5/1; one for each arm)
3 Front Squats (115,80)
4 Clean and Jerks (115,80)
5 GOLDEN SWINGS (1.5/1)
6 SDHP (115,80)
7 Clapping Pushups
8 Knee To Elbows
9 Kipping Pullups
10 Lords of Leaping (24,20)
11 Overhead Squats (115,80)
12 HSPU’s

Level 2 (95,65); (1/.75)
Level 1 (65, 35); (.75/.5)

For each day. you complete the # of reps and work your way down the list, just like the song. After completing the Thruster in a Burpee proceed to the next day. For example on day 5 you would do 5 kb swings, 4 clean and jerks, 3 front squats, 2 turkish get ups and a thruster in a burpee and then proceed on to day 6. This is a tough wod, we can substitute and scale to make it doable for everyone.

    48:03 Rx. PR
    Last years comment challenged me to finish and do Rx so I did.

    Had 15 reps left at the cap but didn’t wanna leave it at that.

    Next years goal is sub 45:00

    42:22 rx – 5 minutes slower than last year but about what I expected given my recent schedule. Looking forward to next year!
