Two athletes will work at a time – each athlete will end up doing 2 rounds.  Athletes will all begin in the starting area, and when the timer begins the first two athletes will head to a loaded barbell and begin front squats.  There is no minimum requirement for front squats, so they may be broken up in any way.  The next three movements will be completed together.  Once a full round is completed, one of the working athletes must “tag-in” the resting athlete for the next round – the next round of front squats may NOT begin until the new athlete is on the floor. Time ends when the final athletes crosses the finish line following the final round. If a team hits the time cap, a second will be added for every rep not completed.

  • Standards
    • Front Squat – Movement begins with barbell on floor.  Athlete may squat clean the first rep, or clean, then descend into squat.  Elbows must be in front of barbell throughout movement, and athlete must descend so hip crease is below top of knee (below 90 degrees).  Athlete must then ascend to show full hip and knee extension at the top.
    • Synchronized Toes-To-Bar – Both athletes must begin in a hang with feet behind the vertical plane.  Athletes must raise legs and both feet must make contact with bar between hands in a synchronized manner.  Any missing element (individually or synchronization) will result in a no rep.  Judges will be looking for synchronization when feet make contact – not in the kip.
    • Synchronized Straight(ish) Leg Raises – Both athletes must begin in a hang with feet behind the vertical plane.  Athletes must raises feet above the horizontal plane/waist in a synchronized manner – legs must remain fairly straight, at a less than 90 degree angle throughout the movement.  Any missing element (individually or synchronization) will result in a no rep.  Judges will be looking for synchronization when feet make contact – not in the kip.
    • Alternating Wallballs – Both athlete will approach wallball target set at 9.5 feet height.  First athlete may squat clean the wallball, showing hip crease below top of knee, and ascending to toss wallball to make contact with the front of the target (not bottom edge).  The other athlete will then catch the ball and descent….repeat.  Athletes may stand side-by-side, or in one in front of the other.  If an athlete gets no-repped, just continue (we will not make the wallball go back to that individual to repeat).  Athletes may drop ball to rest, but no “bouncing” wallball.
    • Synchronized Bar-Facing Burpees – Both athletes will begin movement facing barbell, descending until chests make contact with floor simultaneously.  Athletes will ascend and bunny-hop over barbell to complete rep.  All divisions must bunny hop.  Judges will be watching for synchronization when chests make contact with floor – if the ascent, descent or hop are off, that’s fine, as long as they come together during chest-to-deck.
    • Scoring
      • Time last athletes cross the finish line will earn a placement. If a team hits the time cap, 1 second will be added to the time cap for each rep not completed.
        • Example
          • Final athletes complete all but 2 reps, time for placement would be 15:02
