What is a Chipper?

chipper – having a cheerful, lively, and self-confident air; “looking chipper, like a man…diverted by his own wit”- Frances G. Patton; “life that is gay, brisk, and debonair”- H.M.Reynolds; “walked with a jaunty step”; “a jaunty optimist”

Definition of a CrossFit Chipper (from CrossFit Sydney)

A “Chipper” is a WOD designed to be challenging by its sheer volume and variety of movements.Chippers tend to require individuals to reduce or pace themselves through each task so as to finish the full event.This requires a degree of metal determination as well as physical fitness.

  • The solution is to “Chip” away at the volume in small units that do not see you go to failure or deteriorate the technique of the movement.
  • Decide on a Rep scheme that you can achieve in good form
  • Set small timed breaks or “walk aways” between the designated reps. (Yes you can have a water break on these)
  • Accumulate the reps until complete.
