In “Criss Cross”, we are looking for weights and movement variations that athletes are capable of cycling unbroken when fresh, understanding that they will definitely break up repetitions during the workout. Rather than load or movement complexity being a reason to stop, breathing and grip will likely be limiting factors in this 15-minute AMRAP workout.

Scaling: Bringing down the reps or difficulty of the higher skilled double unders and toes to bar are great options to allow athletes to work on the movement while still maintaining a good rhythm and pace.

Strategy: In this grip intensive workout, strategic breakups from the beginning will lead to consistency later in the workout. Let’s break because we want to, not because we have to.

Proficiency on double unders will determine much of the strategy there, but aiming for 1-3 planned sets on all of these movements. 1 x 30, 2 x 15, or 3 x 10 on the double unders are some options for athletes. On the toes to bar and cleans, 5-5-4 or 5-5-5 from the onset of the workout are sets that can be maintained once we are past the 10 minute mark.
