10 Testing Chipper WODs for all Crossfitters to Try

Chipper WODs are the perfect way to challenge your toughness, endurance and technique under fatigue. They can be programmed in many different ways, and work perfectly as partner workouts as well. Grab a friend, pick a WOD then get involved!

Chipper WODs consist of a series of different exercises completed in sequence. Usually the movements are (generally) performed with lighter weights over higher rep ranges. Chipper WODs train endurance, strength, technique and pure mental toughness, and will test you to your limits!

The name comes from ‘chip away’ which underlines that they are hard and extreme. Chipper workouts are exhausting, but will make you feel accomplished and happy at the end! Use lighter weights than usual so you can concentrate on speed and intensity. Scale accordingly to make sure that you don’t pause or rest for long between any exercises.

You have to complete each set before you are moving to the next one. Try to be as fast as possible, each one is a race against the clock!
