“Heartbreak Kid”


CrossFit New England Benchmark WOD

7.1K 193
  • 3 Rounds for Time
  • 10 Front Squats (185/135 lb)
  • 20 Chest-to-Bar Pull-Ups
  • 50 Double-Unders

Front squats should be taken from the ground. Squat cleaning the first rep is allowed.


The weight on the barbell should be heavier, but something that athletes could complete in 1-2 sets each round. The weight will come from the ground, so it should be a load that athletes can safely clean. In order to get the proper stimulus, the pull-up and jump rope variations should be something that could be completed in no more than 4 sets each round.
