Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear that proper depth and lockout are being reached on the thrusters, and the chest and thighs can be seen touching the ground on the burpees.

Note: Depending on your performance, this video may be longer than previous workouts. Be sure you have enough battery life, memory and time to upload your video. You may need to increase your limit on YouTube to allow a longer video.

60-calorie row
50 toes-to-bars
40 wall-ball shots, 10 lb. to 9-foot target
30 cleans, 65 lb.
20 muscle-ups

Notes
This workout begins seated on the rower with the monitor set to zero calories. At the call of “3-2-1...Go,” the athlete will grab the handle and begin rowing. If you finish the 20 muscle-ups and return to the rower, you must reset the monitor to zero before rowing.

Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 14-minute time cap. You will enter your result by the total number of reps completed plus your tiebreak time (see below).

Special Tiebreak
In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. At the end of the set of cleans and the set of muscle-ups, time should be marked. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the elapsed time at which you completed the 30 cleans or the 20 muscle- ups, whichever was last. If you do not get through the 30 cleans you will not have a tiebreak time.

For example, a male athlete finishes all the reps up to and including 10 calories of rowing in his second round, for a total of 210 reps. This is his score. He finished his 30th clean at 10:05, and his 20th muscle-up at 13:10. In this case he will enter 13:10 as his time in the tiebreak field. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 210 reps and a tiebreak time of 13:20, but below someone with 210 reps and a tiebreak time of 13:00.

Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recommended you set your clock to count up.

Equipment
• An indoor rower with a monitor that measures calories
• Pull-up bar
• A medicine ball of the appropriate weight for your division
• A wall mark or target set at the specified height
• Barbell
• Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division
• A set of gymnastic rings hung so you can successfully perform a muscle-up

*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are: 9-kg ball and 61-kg clean for the Men, 6-kg ball and 43-kg clean for the Women, 9-kg ball and 52-kg clean for the Masters Men, 4-kg ball and 29-kg clean for the Masters Women.

Video Submission Standards

Click here to see an example of a valid video submission.

Prior to starting, film the measuring of the height of the wall-ball target, as well as the weight of the ball, the barbell and the plates so the loads and height can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the movements from the side so it is clear that: 60 calories are rowed, the feet can be seen behind the plane of the bar at the bottom, and in contact with the bar at the top of the toes-to-bars, proper depth and height is being reached on the wall-ball shots, elbows are in front of the bar while standing tall with the barbell on the clean, and that lockout is shown at the bottom and top of the muscle-up.

Depending on the layout of your gym, the other person in the frame may need to move the camera during the workout so it is clear all standards are being met for each movement. This includes being able to clearly see the monitor of the rower set to zero at the start and at least 60 calories prior to moving to the toes-to-bars.

Notes
This workout begins from the standing position with the barbell on the floor and the Athlete standing tall. Each time the Athlete returns to the deadlift they will be responsible for loading their own barbell to the next appropriate weight. The same barbell must be used for the entire workout, and the Athlete may not receive assistance when changing the loads. Using additional pre-loaded barbells is not permitted.

Every rep counts in this workout. Credit will be given for partially completed rounds. You will enter your result by the total number of reps completed plus your tiebreak time (see below).

Special Tiebreak
In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. At the end of each set of 15 box jumps time should be marked. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the time of the last completed sets of box jumps.

For example, a male athlete finishes all the reps up to and including 25 deadlifts at 275 lb. plus an additional 5 box jumps, for a total of 120 reps. This is his score. He also finished the 15th box jump of the round with 135 lb. in 0:45, the 15th box jump of the round with 185 lb. in 2:14, and the 15th box jump of the round with 225 lb. in 6:32. In this case he will enter 6:32 as his time in the tiebreak field since this was the time of completion of his last full set of box jumps. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 120 reps and a tiebreak time of 7:02, but below someone with 120 reps and a tiebreak time of 6:11.

Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recom- mended that you set your clock to count up.

Equipment
• One Barbell
• Collars
• Plates to load to the appropriate weights for your division
• Box that is the appropriate height for your division

*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are:
Men: 61, 84, 102, 125, 143, 166 kg
Women: 43, 61, 70, 84, 93, 102 kg
Masters Men 55+: 43, 61, 84, 102, 125, 143 kg
Master Women 55+: 29, 43, 52, 61, 70, 84 kg

Video Submission Standards

All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from the side so it is clear the shoulders are behind the bar at the top of the deadlift, and the standing position can be seen while on top of the box.

Your workout is over whenever you do not complete two full rounds of the couplet within the time cap and your score will be the total number of reps you complete.

If you then complete one full round of 12s plus an additional 10 overhead squats (34 reps) by minute 6, your workout is over. Your score will be 74 (40 reps from the first segment plus 34 reps from the second segment).
