At each of the first 3 events teams’ performances will be ranked and one point will be awarded per place (1 for 1st, 2 for 2nd, etc.). The 8 teams with the lowest overall point totals will advance to the final workout, for which teams will be ranked and awarded 3 points per place (3 for 1st, 6 for 2nd, etc.). The team with the lowest overall point total after the 4th event wins.
Event 1: Tag Team Fight Gone Bad
In this workout each member of the team will move through five stations one time each for one minute each. There will be a one minute break between each athlete. The stations are:
1. Wall Ball Shots (20#/14#)
2. Sumo Deadlift High-pull (75#/55#)
3. Box Jumps, 20″
4. Push Press (75#/55#)
5. Calorie Row
The clock does not reset or stop between exercises. On the call of “rotate” the athlete must move to the next station immediately. One point is given for each rep or calorie. The team’s score for this workout is the total combined points from all three team members.
Event 2: Row ‘n’ Jerk
6 Minutes Team Max Meter Row
6 Minutes for each team member to establish a 1 Rep Max Squat Clean & Jerk
Teams will be given one rowing machine and one 45# barbell with 260# of bumper plates and collars. During the first 6 minutes of the workout teams will work to accumulate as many meters as possible on the erg, dividing their time on the machine however they desire.
During the latter 6 minutes each member of the team will establish a 1 rep max squat clean and jerk. Once the bar is loaded, collars are on, and the weight has been confirmed with the judge, the bar must be cleaned in one fluid motion from the ground to the front rack. With the bar in this position the athlete must pass through a full squat, creases of their hips below their knees, and then put overhead. The final position, constituting a good lift, is with the bar locked out overhead, knees, hips, and elbows fully extended, with feet on the same line, and at least a portion of the athlete’s ear covered by their arm.
The team’s score for this workout is the total meters rowed plus the pounds lifted in each team member’s best effort.
Event 3: Pesky Burpees
Overhead Squats (95#/65#)
All team members must perform 3 burpees each at the beginning of every minute before moving on to the barbell or pull-up bar. The overhead squats and pull-ups may be partitioned among the team members as desired, but they must be completed in the listed order with one athlete working at a time. If the call for burpees occurs during a repetition the athlete will complete their rep and then join their team in completing their 3 burpees. There is an 18 minute cap.
Event 4: TBD
After the first 3 events the 8 teams with the lowest overall point totals will advance to the final workout, which will be revealed at that time. Teams will be ranked and awarded 3 points per place (3 for 1st, 6 for 2nd, etc.) in event 4. The team with the lowest overall point total after this event wins.
