What is a Jailhouse Ten?

October 24th, 2009 · No Comments · crossfit, faq, fitness, workout

One of our users asked today, “what is a jailhouse ten?” Since we don’t have an info page for this inside the app itself, I wanted to put up a blog post explaining this workout routine.

Typically, we prescribe Jailhouse 10 workouts involving burpees. A jailhouse 10 workout of burpees is simply:

Do 10 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 9 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 8 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 7 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 6 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 5 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 4 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 3 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 2 burpees
Walk across the room and back
Do 1 burpee

(A jailhouse 10 squat thrusts or pullup workout would be the same sequence of sets/reps/rest, with a different exercise instead of burpees.)

The Jailhouse Ten workout is named so because it’s a great workout to do in your prison cell. For those of us not in prison (hopefully all of us here), this is also perfect for the hotel room, basement, or parking lot.
