The Burpee Sprint

It’s been up less than a day, but the Dave Castro seminar is selling out fast. Sign up, stat, or risk missing out.
And, similarly, there are just a few slots left for the James “OPT” FitzGerald Q&A/lecture – by now, the WOD has sold out completely. Sign up while you can.
As we’ve said before, these events are open to anyone in the CrossFit community, not just CFNYC members. Further, CFNYC makes no money hosting these events; instead, we’re organizing the series because we think these speakers are super smart, because we think all of you would benefit hugely from their wisdom, and because we’re excited to hear these coaches speak ourselves.
FREE BEGINNERS’ CLASSES: Tuesdays @ 7pm (women-only, new time slot), Thursdays @ 8am & 7pm (new time slot), Saturdays & Sundays @ 10am. Click here for the schedule and to pre-register for a class.

According to the Oxford English Dictionary, the burpee was named in the 1930s for American psychologist Dr. Royal H. Burpee, who developed the Burpee test, “a test devised by Burpee to measure agility and muscular co-ordination, in which the subject executes a series of burpees in rapid succession.”

  • Chris C

    I registered for the Dave Castro lecture / Q&A since I should be back in the States that week. I wanted to reserve a slot for Saskia too but she doesn’t have a Mindbody account so I put quantity 2.
    Is that kosher?

  • Matt U.

    26:05 — 400’s were a bit longer

  • Mike Mishik

    I’m coming in at 1…I expect nothing less than this, to be playing the entire time we do burpees

  • Jenn

    Finished only 5 rounds at 30 minutes.

  • Simon P

    6 x 475m + 25 burpees – 38:50. This was not fun!

  • Big thanks to Josh for completing today’s post for me (I only was able to put the WOD itself up) after I had computer troubles while out of town.
