“Heartbreak at Home”
5 rounds of
60 Double Unders
15 Chest to Bar Pull-ups

WOD Guidance:
For the second week in a row, we have a workout that bears some similarities to the workout “Heartbreak Kid” from CrossFit New England. This one has two of the three movements that we see in that workout, but no barbell. For most of us, these are both very high-skill movements. The chest-to-bar involves a big powerful kip, similar to a bar muscle-up. Look for your coach to give you a scaling option that involves kipping today. Even if you’re usually a ring row athlete, it’s a good idea today to get up on the bar and try at least a few kip swings. For our double-under, we want to pick an option that’s going to give us as few failed reps as possible. One thing that I’ve talked about with athletes who are very new to double-unders is stopping their set before they hit failure. If I have an athlete who continually hits failure at ten double-unders, I may reduce the number each round to 15 or 20 rather than 60 (in this case) and have them work in sets of 5 double-under at a time. This will help to build capacity while not ingraining the bad habits that come with missing reps.
