SCORE

For individuals the score is time to completion. If the athlete does not complete the workout within the time cap, the score will be 14:00, plus all reps not completed. The run will count for 1 rep. The run must be fully completed to count for the rep.

Teams will receive TWO scores for this challenge. Part One is total time for 400m relay. Part Two is total reps completed in 6:00 AMRAP.

If a team doesn’t complete the 400m in under 10 minutes, they will still receive a score (what time it took to complete) but they will have to wait to start the AMRAP portion till all 4 members have completed the relay. The faster you finish, the more rest you will have till the 6 minute AMRAP starts.


MOVEMENT STANDARDS

AMERICAN KETTLEBELL SWINGS

At the top of the swing, the kettlebell must be fully inverted (bell over the handle), centered over the feet with the hips and knees fully extended and the arms straight. At the bottom, the wrists must touch the thighs and the bell must pass behind the heels. There is no requirement for flexing the knees.

BAR MUSCLE UPS

In the bar muscle-up, the athlete must begin with or pass through a hang below the bar, with the arms fully extended and the feet off the ground. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but pull-overs, rolls to support and glide kips are not permitted. The heels may not rise above the height of the bar during the kip.

At the top, the elbows must be fully locked while the athlete is in the support position above the bar with the shoulders over or in front of the bar. Athletes must pass through some portion of a dip-to-lockout over the bar. Only the hands, and no other part of the arm, may touch the pull-up bar to assist the athlete in completing the rep. Once on top, the hands must stay in contact with the bar, and athletes must maintain support with their arms. Removing the hands and resting while on top of the bar is not allowed.

CHEST TO BAR PULL UPS

These are standard chest to bar pull-ups. Full extension of the arms must be reached at the bottom. At the top, the chest (anywhere below the clavicle) must come into contact with the bar. Just achieving sufficient height is not enough. There must be visible contact. Any grip on the bar and any type of kipping are allowed as long as these standards are met.

CHIN ABOVE BAR PULL UPS

These are standard pull-ups. Full extension of the arms at the bottom, chin over the height of bar at the top. Any grip on the bar and any type of kipping are allowed.

HANGING KNEE RAISES

The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom with the feet off the ground, and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and the rest of the body. At the top of the repetition, the athlete must raise the knees above the height of the hips.

SUMO DEADLIFT HIGH PULL

Kettlebell starts on the ground between the athlete’s feet. The athlete will deadlift the kettlebell, hips will extend and elbows stay above the kettlebell the whole time. Keeping the elbows higher then the kettlebell, the kettlebell must pass thru the hips and reach the collarbone of the athlete with hips and knees in full extension.
