L2 60 singles L1 MB Ground to Overhead 30 Singles
“Double Crossed” is a heavily front loaded workout on the clean and jerk side, with nearly half the repetitions being completed just in the sets of 10, 9, and 8. With that being said, the clean and jerks will be the more important movement early on, with the double unders serving as more of a speed bump. Athletes have the option to string together 2-3 sets on the barbell, or to go with very fast single repetitions. Knowing the clean and jerks are more important than the rope early on, pushing these a little more might be the better option. As the workout progresses and the reps on the clean and jerks go down, the double unders become more significant. Single repetitions on the barbell later on may allow athletes to transition to the rope quicker and have more success completing the 30 repetitions with minimal problems. Athletes should make sure that their ropes are placed neatly on the group following the clean and jerks to allow for an easy transition when they need it to be.
