Deck of Death

This is a fan favourite! You have the option today to run or row. There’s a better chance of finishing the deck if you opt for the runs.

Hearts = Burpees
Diamonds = Situps
Clubs = Pullups
Spades = Squats
Jokers = 400m Run/500m Row

Start by drawing the top card and do that many reps of the suit. For example, if you draw the 9 of Hearts, you’re doing 9 burpees. Face cards are all worth 10. The goal is to get through the whole deck as fast as you can. There is a 25min time cap.

Compare to Dec.10/15

  3. Deck of Death
    w/ 400m run for jokers

    time = 20:05

    My previous time was 21:55 but with rowing. The running saved some time no doubt, even if they were my very first 2 cards!!
    Thanks for the fun class Patrick! πŸ™‚

      Great improvement on time Maria WOW. I also had a run at start Was good but also had a run with about 3 cards left in the deck that was very slow and hard to do.

    WU x 1 (10 Burpees, 10 pull-ups, 10 squats, 10 sit-ups)

    WOD: Deck of Death
    Hearts = Burpees
    Diamonds = Sit-ups
    Clubs = Pull-ups

    Jokers = 400m Run

    Total: 10 reps left at time cap. (4 Burpees left and 6 pull-ups for the next card.)
    First time doing this. I liked it. Pull-ups definitely slowed me down after 70 reps yesterday πŸ™

    Thanks Patrick. Great work everyone!

  5. Mike M

    Deck of death
    With 400 m runs

    Cards remaining ace,2,3,7,8,10 so 31 reps left on the board. Mixed strict pull ups with ring rows about equally
    Completed 48 cards including jokers. Last time completed 32 cards and no jokers

    I will finish that deck next time
    Nice job for those that complete it. It is averaging 30 sec per card and for those that don’t complete deck. Also well done. It’s a lot of moving

  6. I really wanted to come in at 6 am and do this but when I went to registrer (at 5:30) I saw 20 people registered!!! Like WHAAAAAT?! Better start registering in advance πŸ™‚

    So I went for a 3k run with the doggies. Time was 22:43 – I was expecting more than that since my mile run a couple weeks ago was over 12 mins. Plus this was at Mapleton park which means a few (small) hills. Happy with this πŸ™‚

    Love this Wod!
    Great class Maria and great work 6 amer’s!!!

      Haha, Maria. Keyboard is programmed for regular words. I guess it put you in and I didn’t even notice…. Great class Patrick!!! Lol

  8. MOB + WU + 10 Burpees, 10 Squats, 10 Ring Rows, 10 Situps

    Group MOB

    Deck of Death

    TOTAL: 286 Reps + 2 x 400m Run

    My math was off. I counted the total reps off of my playing cards, then the number of reps remaining and it didn’t equal 340. Because the 54 remaining reps were easier to count, I used that as my known entity! In any case, great workout and really fun.

    1. Greg

      Good job Jackie. I am somewhat numerically challenged so sorry I can not help with any math over single didgit! πŸ™‚

    Deck of Deaaaaaath!

    66 reps remain at time cap.

    Highlights from this time through – first time completing all of one movement (squats), got a big chunk of high rep squats and burpees so my legs felt GREAT when it came time to run…

    Oh and got both Jokers back to back in the last 1/4 of the deck. Yay.

    Awesome job nooners!

    At 23:15 I drew my final card, which was the 400 m run, so clock ran out while I was running.

    Super happy about this. I;ve done this WOD several times and this is as close as I’ve ever come to completing the deck. Contributing factors to my progress: 1) Scaled pull ups to ring rows (I tore my hands during yesterday’s pull up fiasco, so I was not going near the bar today….. wah! wah! wah! 2) I did 400 m runs, instead of rowing….I’m pretty sure this is faster 3) I had a REALLY well shuffled deck today, as all movement were quite nicely distributed.

    Note to self for next time to track my progress:
    Last time I did this WOD(Dec 2015) I rowed and for Pull ups over 5 reps, I did ring rows, and for 5 & under I did pull ups. Total of 63 reps left

    Once again, a fun one. One of my fav’s!

  19. Elba

    Scaled
    Ring rows

    1st and last card were the jokers, I liked it, I left for the run at 23:01, I came back around 25:05 closest I have ever been on finishing on time, last time 35 reps left + joker, happy with my results, big class this morning πŸ˜‰

    First time doing this wod with pullups.
    300m row and 98 reps remaining.

    When I woke up this morning, it was confirmed that I should have scaled the situps. Injured my hip flexor earlier in the week and all those situps did not help things. I did row with just legs and arms because the hip extension part hurt, and I tore my hand very early because I seemed to get all my pullups together at the beginning.

    * Things will go much better next time. πŸ™‚
