Once the three women complete their last hang power clean and move to the finish mat, the first male athlete will enter and begin their work in the same fashion. This event is complete when the last rep of the hang power clean is complete and the last male athlete moves to the finish mat.

Scoring
The team's score is its total time.


Movement Standards

GHD Sit-up
The GHD will have a standard setup and athletes may adjust prior and during the event. Each rep begins with the athlete touching both hands to the floor (for men) or to a 6-inch riser (for women). At the top, both hands must touch the foot pad.

Muscle-up
In the muscle-up, the athlete must begin with, or pass through, a hang below the rings with arms fully extended (with or without a “false grip”) and the feet off the ground.

At the top, the elbows must be fully locked out while the athlete supports him or herself above the rings. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but swings or rolls to support are not permitted. If consecutive kipping muscle-ups are performed, a change of direction below the rings is required. If the heels rise above the bottom of the rings during the kip, it is a no rep. Rings will be set at a fixed height of 90 inches from the top of the mat to the bottom of the rings. Athletes may not adjust the height of the rings. Athletes may assist each other to the rings once they have reached that station.

Hang Power Clean
Each repetition must start from the hang. Any repetition taken from the floor must achieve a deadlift lockout (hips and knees fully extended, shoulders behind the bar) before re-dipping to initiate the hang clean.

Each repetition finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended. Power cleaning the barbell from the ground in one continuous motion is not permitted.

Event 7

For time, each athlete moves through stations of:
30-calorie row 
  Deadlift hold while trailing teammate rows (315 / 205 lb.)
30 strict handstand push-ups
  Handstand hold while trailing teammate performs HSPU
30 toes-to-bars
  Static hang while trailing teammate performs toes-to-bars
50-foot overhead axle lunge (155 / 105 lb.)

Time cap: 20 minutes
Athlete order: Any

Notes
This event begins with all six teammates on the starting mat. At the sound of the beep, the first athlete will move forward and begin rowing. Once 30 calories have been rowed, they will move forward to the barbell while the next athlete enters and mounts the rower. The trailing athlete may only pull strokes on the rower while the leading athlete has deadlifted the barbell and is holding it at their waist. After 30 calories, they will rotate forward, with the first athlete moving on to the wall station for 30 handstand push-ups, while the second athlete remains at the row/deadlift station and the third athlete enters.

Once the first athlete has performed 30 handstand push-ups and the second athlete has rotated to the wall, the first athlete will then hold a handstand against the wall while the second athlete performs their reps of handstand push-ups. The first athlete will then rotate to the pull-up bar station for 30 toes-to-bars. Once the second athlete rotates to the pull-up bar station, the first athlete will then hang from the bar while the second athlete performs their reps of toes-to-bars.

Work throughout the entire event will be done in this fashion, with the leading athlete performing a static hold while the trailing athlete accumulates their reps. Once an athlete is able to advance from the pull-up bar, they will move from the rig to the axle bar. They will overhead lunge the axle passed the marker, then return the bar to the starting position before running to the finish mat. The last athlete to enter will not have an athlete trailing behind them and will therefore not need to perform any static holds and may rest while the athlete ahead of them performs their reps. However, once the last athlete completes their 30 toes-to-bars they will wait until the lead athlete has lunged 50 feet before they pick up the axle and overhead lunge. Once the last athlete completes their lunges and moves to the finish mat, the event is complete.

Scoring
The team's score is its total time.


Movement Standards

Row with Deadlift Hold
The leading athlete must hold the barbell locked out at the top of the deadlift, hips and knees at full extension with the shoulders behind the bar, while the trailing athlete performs the row. Any grip is permitted. If the athlete drops or sets down the barbell, their partner must stop pulling strokes on the rower.

Handstand Push-up with Handstand Hold
Each handstand push-up begins and ends with the arms locked out and heels on the wall. The palms must remain inside a 34-inch wide by 24-inch deep marked area (fingers may extend outside).

At the bottom of each rep, the head touches the ground. Kipping or using the legs for assistance is not allowed. The athlete’s hips may not touch the wall and their legs must remain straight. The leading athlete must also be in a handstand for the entire rep.

Toes-to-bar with Hang
In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang with the heels behind the vertical plane of the pull-up bar, to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. Both feet must be in contact with the bar at the same time, inside the hands.

The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and behind the body. The leading athlete must hang from the bar while the trailing athlete performs repetitions. Both athletes must face the same direction.

Overhead Walking Lunge
Forward motion will only be allowed while the load is being supported in the overhead position. On each lunge, the trailing knee must make contact with the ground at the bottom.

At the top of each step, the athlete must stand with the hips and knees fully extended. If the knee does not touch the ground, or if the next step is initiated (or the weight is dropped) before fully standing up, the barbell will need to be brought backward to where the previous step began. Once the athlete moves past the marker and is standing tall, they will drop the bar and return it to the start position for the athlete behind them. The final male and final female athletes do not return their barbell after their lunge.
