Workout Description

Teams will have 15 minutes to complete the above workout. Teams will line up in their designated lane behind the starting line. At the call of 3-2-1-go, athlete 1 will complete 8 hang power snatches and 8 lateral burpees over the bar. Once they complete a full round, they will tag in athlete 2 behind the starting line. Athletes 2, 3, and 4 will complete a full round in the same fashion before athlete 1 may begin a second round. The team may decide the order of athletes, but the order must remain the same throughout the entire workout. Once all 4 athletes have completed a total of 8 rounds of the first couplet, they will move on to the second couplet. Once the team has completed 8 rounds of the second couplet, they will move on to the third couplet.

The score for this workout will be the total time to complete all three couplets. If the team does not finish within the 15-minute time cap, each rep not completed will be an additional second added to 15 minutes. The tie break will be the time each couplet is finished.

Standards of Movement

Hang Power Snatch
The rep begins with the bar in the hang position with the hips and knees fully extended and finishes with the bar overhead with the hips and knees fully extended and feet in line, under the hips. The bar must travel overhead in one smooth movement. Press outs will be allowed, however if any part of the barbell makes contact with the head or shoulders, the rep will not count. This is a power snatch, so the bar must be received with the hip crease above the knee.

Lateral Burpee over Bar
The athlete must perform this movement parallel to the barbell. The athlete’s chest and thighs must touch the ground at the bottom. The athlete must then come to his or her feet to jump over the barbell with a two-footed jump. There is no hip extension requirement. The rep is completed after the athlete performs a burpee and both feet land on the other side of the bar.

Thruster
This is a standard barbell thruster in which the barbell moves from the bottom on a front squat to full lockout overhead in one motion. A full squat clean into a thruster is allowed when the bar is taken from the ground. The hip crease must pass below the knee at the bottom. The bar must come to a full lockout overhead with the hips, knees, and arms fully extended, and the bar directly overhead.

Chest to Bar Pull-up
Strict, kipping, or butterfly pull-ups are allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom. At the top, the chest (at any point below the clavicle) must clearly come into contact with the bar.

Shoulder to Overhead
Each rep begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead. A strict press, push press, push jerk, or split jerk may be used as long as the elbows, hips, and knees are fully extended and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line and under the hips.

Ring Push-up
The rep starts with hands in the rings and arms fully locked out with only the feet touching the ground. The athlete will touch the chest to the abmat at the bottom and the rep is complete when the arms are fully locked out in a plank position. If the athlete’s chest does not come in contact with the abmat, the rep does not count.

Chin over Bar Pull-up
For scaled athletes, regular chin over bar pull-ups are required. Strict, kipping, or butterfly pull-ups are allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom. At the top, the athlete must clearly show the chin over the horizontal plane of the bar.

Hand Release Push-up
Each rep will start with the chest and thighs on the ground. The athlete must push up into a plank position with elbows locked out, return to the starting position, and remove hands from the ground before proceeding into the next rep. Snaking push-ups will not be allowed. Quads and chest must come off the ground at the same time.
