  • Workout 15.1

    • In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang 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.
    • For scaled and scaled teens, the hanging knee raise begins just like the toes-to-bar but ends when the athlete has raised their knees above the height of their hip.
    • For scaled Masters, each rep of the sit-up begins with the athlete’s back in contact with the floor, their knees bent with their feet anchored, and their hands touching the floor above their head.
    • At the top, the athlete will sit up so their chest makes contact with their thighs and their hands touch their feet. AbMats are permitted.
    • This is a traditional deadlift with the hands outside the knees. Sumo deadlifts are not allowed.
    • Starting at the floor, the barbell is lifted until hips and knees reach full extension with the shoulders behind the bar. The arms must be straight throughout. No bouncing.
    • The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one smooth motion. For most divisions this is not a ground-to-overhead any way. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then lifted overhead is a no rep. For scaled divisions a ground-to- overhead is permitted, where the bar may be brought to the shoulders and then lifted overhead. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing.
    • If you begin with an empty barbell, or a barbell that only has plates smaller than standard bumper plates, each repetition must begin with the barbell clearly below the knees.
    • The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.
    • For Workout 15.1a, the clean and jerk is a ground-to-overhead any way. A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used to get the bar to the shoulders, and a shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used to get the weight overhead. The barbell begins on the ground.
    • The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.

    Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 9 minutes of:
    15 toes-to-bars
    10 deadlifts (115 / 75 lb.)
    5 snatches (115 / 75 lb.)

     

     

    WORKOUT 15.1a

    1-rep-max clean and jerk
    6-minute time cap

     

    Notes
    These workouts begin with the athlete standing under their pull-up bar with the barbell loaded to the appropriate weight. After 15 toes-to-bars (sit-ups or hanging knee raises for scaled divisions) are completed the athlete will move to the barbell to perform 10 deadlifts followed by 5 snatches. After the last snatch is completed the athlete will move back to the pull-up bar and start their next round.

    Your score for Workout 15.1 will be the total number of repetitions completed.

    As soon as the clock reaches 9 minutes and Workout 15.1 is complete, Workout 15.1a will begin with the same running clock. The athlete will have from 9:00 to 15:00 to complete Workout 15.1a.

    The same barbell must be used for both 15.1 and 15.1a. The athlete must load their own barbell and may not receive assis- tance. Prior to each lift you must state what weight you are about to attempt. Plates smaller than 1⁄2 lb. may not be used. There is no limit to the number of attempts within the 6-minute time limit.

    Your score for Workout 15.1a will be the weight (in pounds) that you successfully clean and jerk.

    Should the athlete choose to redo the workout, you must withdraw your scores for both 15.1 and 15.1a and resubmit both scores from the second attempt. You may not use your score from your first attempt at 15.1 and your score from your second attempt at 15.1a or vice versa.

    Special Tiebreak
    Your score for Workout 15.1a will be the weight of your heaviest successful clean and jerk. Scores will be recorded in one pound increments. If there is a tie at the exact same weight, lighter athletes will rank above heavier athletes. The body weight posted on your profile will be the weight used to break your tie, divided into 10-lb. classes; e.g. 180-189, 190-199, 200-209, etc.

    Affiliates will be responsible for validating that an athlete’s body weight is within their weight class. If an athlete opts not to submit their body weight they will still have a valid score for Workout 15.1a, but they will be ranked lower than athletes that lifted the same amount of weight and also submitted their body weight.

    Equipment
    • Pull-up bar
    • Barbell
    • Collars
    • Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division for Workout 15.1
    • Plates to load for your max clean and jerk (no smaller than ½ lb.)

    For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the event. Clear the area of all extra plates, people or other obstructions.

    *The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights for Workout 15.1 in kilograms are 52 / 34 kg for Rx’d, 38 / 25 kg for Scaled, Masters and Teens, and 29 / 20 kg for Scaled Masters and Scaled Teens. If you lift with kilogram plates you will need to convert your results to pounds when submitting your score. Remember, when lifting with pound plates a 20-kg barbell will count as 45 lb. and a 15-kg barbell will count as 35 lb.

    Video Submission Standards
    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 an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

    (All Divisions)
    1-rep-max clean and jerk
    6-minute time cap

     
  • Workout 15.2

    • The hip crease must be below the top of the knee at the bottom. A full squat snatch is permitted, but not required, to start the movement if standard depth is achieved.
    • The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body. You may not use a rack.
    • This is a standard chest-to-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom.
    • At the top, the chest must clearly come into contact with the bar below the collarbone.
    • For the chin-over-bar pull-up the hang position is the same as the chest-to-bar pull-up (see above). Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. At the top, the chin must break the horizontal plane of the bar.
    • The jumping chest-to-bar pull-up bar should be setup so it is at least six inches above the top of the athlete’s head when standing tall.
    • At the bottom, the athlete must lower themselves so his or her arms are fully extended.
    • At the top, the chest must clearly come into contact with the bar.

    Every 3 minutes for as long as possible complete:

    From 0:00-3:00

       2 rounds of:

       10 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)

       10 chest-to-bar pull-ups

    From 3:00-6:00

       2 rounds of:

       12 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)

       12 chest-to-bar pull-ups

    From 6:00-9:00

       2 rounds of:

       14 overhead squats (95 / 65 lb.)

       14 chest-to-bar pull-ups

    Etc., following same pattern until you fail to complete both rounds

    Notes
    Each 3-minute section begins from the standing position with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. Using a ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed. Every rep counts in this workout. You will enter your score as the total number of reps. See the scorecard for assistance in calculating the rep total.

    Time Bonus
    This workout begins as a standard 3-minute couplet of 2 rounds of 10 overhead squats and 10 chest-to-bar pull-ups (6 of each for scaled versions). If you complete all the reps (2 complete rounds) before the time cap you will rest until the 3 minutes are up before beginning the next segment. In the second segment, minute 3 to minute 6, you will attempt 2 rounds of 12 overhead squats and 12 chest-to-bar pull-ups (8 of each for scaled versions). If you complete all the reps (2 complete rounds) before the time cap you will rest until the 6 minutes are up before beginning the next segment. In the third segment, minute 6 to minute 9, you will attempt 2 rounds of 14 overhead squats and 14 chest-to-bar pull-ups (10 of each for scaled versions). If you complete all the reps (2 complete rounds) before the time cap you will rest until the 9 minutes are up before beginning the next segment. You will continue in this pattern for as long as possible, adding 2 reps to each exercise each round for every 3-minute segment you complete.

    Your workout is over whenever you do not complete 2 full rounds of the couplet within the time cap, and your score is the total number of reps you complete.

    For example, if you complete the first 2 rounds of 10s (40 reps) in 2:30, you will rest until 3:00 before beginning the rounds of 12s. If you then complete 1 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).

    Equipment
    • Pull-up bar
    • Barbell
    • Collars
    • Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division

    For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the event. Clear the area of all extra plates, people or other obstructions.

    *The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 43 / 29 kg for Rx’d, 29 / 20 kg for Scaled, Masters and Teens, and 20 / 15 kg for Scaled Masters and Scaled Teens.

    Video Submission Standards
    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 an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Workout 15.3

    • In the muscle-up, you 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.
    • The elbows must be fully locked out while supporting yourself 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.
    • In the wall-ball shot, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to hit the specified target.
    • The center of the ball must hit the target at or above the specified target height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the wall, it is a no rep.
    • This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. Only successful jumps are counted, not attempts.
    • For scaled divisions this is the standard single-under in which the rope passes under the feet once for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. Only successful jumps are counted, not attempts.

    Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 14 minutes of:
    7 muscle-ups
    50 wall-ball shots
    100 double-unders

    Men use 20-lb. ball to 10 feet, Women use 14-lb. ball to 9 feet

    Notes
    This workout begins with the athlete standing under the rings. At the call of “3-2-1 … go,” the athlete will jump up and perform muscle-ups. Once all the muscle-up reps are complete they will move to the wall-ball shots then to the double-unders. After the last double-under, the athlete will move back to the rings and begin the next round.

    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).

    Tiebreak
    In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. At the end of each set of double-unders, 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 your last set of double-unders.

    For example, a male athlete finishes 2 complete rounds, plus an additional 2 muscle-ups for a total of 316 reps. This is his score. During his second round, he finished his 100th double-under at 13:20. In this case he will enter 13:20 as his time in the tiebreak field. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 316 reps and a tiebreak time of 13:45, but below someone with 316 reps and a tiebreak time of 13:00.

    For Masters and Teens, this workout is completed in reverse order, and their tiebreak time will be the point at which they completed their last wall-ball shot.

    For Scaled options there is no tiebreak.

    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
    • Set of gymnastic rings hung so you can successfully perform a muscle-up
    • Medicine ball of the appropriate weight for your division
    • Wall mark or target set at the specified height
    • Jump rope

    For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.

    *The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are: 9-kg / 6-kg ball for Rx’d, 9-kg / 4-kg ball for Scaled, Masters and Teens, 6-kg / 4-kg ball for Scaled Masters and Scaled Teens.

    Video Submission Standards
    Prior to starting, film the measuring of the height of the wall-ball target, as well as the weight of the ball, 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 video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Workout 15.4

    • Prior to starting you will need to establish the foot line for your handstand push-up. Stand facing the wall with your feet at hip width and your toes touching the wall. While standing tall, reach your hands over your head with your elbows straight, shoulders extended and your thumbs touching.
    • From here, mark the height of your wrists, then measure down 3 inches and create a line on the wall. Mark your line with a permanent marker, chalk or tape. Judges may restore the line between rounds as needed.
    • Each handstand push-up begins and ends with the heels in contact with the wall and above the pre-marked line. The athlete may place their hands however they choose, as long as their heels are above the line.
    • At the bottom the head makes contact with the ground. The feet do not need to remain in contact with the wall for the entire movement, but must touch above the line at the beginning and end of each rep. Kipping is allowed.
    • For Scaled, each rep of the push press begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead and over the middle of the body.
    • The athlete may dip and drive with the legs while the weight is on the shoulders. However, once the barbell leaves the shoulder the hips and knees must remain straight until the weight is locked out overhead. No jerks.
    • At the top, the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line. Using a rack is not permitted.
    • For the clean, the barbell begins on the ground. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing.
    • A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the shoulders, with the hips and knees fully extended with the feet in line and the elbows in front of the bar.

    Complete as many reps as possible in 8 minutes of:
    3 handstand push-ups

    Etc., adding 3 reps to the handstand push-up each round, and 3 reps to the clean every 3 rounds.

    Men clean 185 lb.
    Women clean 125 lb.

    Notes
    Prior to starting this workout each athlete will need to stand against the wall and measure and mark their foot line for the handstand push-ups (details to the left). At the call of “3-2-1 … go,” the athlete will kick up into a handstand and perform handstand push-ups. Once 3 handstand push-up reps are complete they will move to the barbell for 3 cleans, then back to the wall for 6 handstand push-ups, then 3 cleans, etc. Each round, the number of repetitions of the handstand push-ups will increase by 3. After every 3 rounds, the number of clean reps will increase by 3. Athletes will continue following this pattern for as many reps as possible within the 8 minutes.

    Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 8-minute time cap.

    Tiebreak
    In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. Time should be marked after every third set of cleans (the last set before increasing the clean reps), i.e., after the third set of 3 cleans, after the third set of 6 cleans, after the third set of 9 cleans, etc. Whichever occurred last will be your tiebreak score.

    For example, a male athlete finishes 5 handstand push-ups in the round of 24 reps for a total of 125 reps. During his workout he finished his third set of 3 cleans at 1:31 and his third set of 6 cleans at 5:25. In this case, he will submit 125 reps for his score and also enter 5:25 as his time in the tiebreak field. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 125 reps and a tiebreak time of 6:00, but below someone with 125 reps and a tiebreak time of 5:15.

    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.

    For Scaled options there is no tiebreak.

    Equipment
    • Wall with a line at the appropriate height for the handstand push-up
    • Barbell
    • Collars
    • Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division

    For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the event. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.

    *The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 84 / 56 kg for Rx’d, 43 / 29 kg push press and 52 / 34 kg clean for Masters 55+ and Scaled, 52 / 34 kg clean for Teens 16-17, 43 / 29 kg clean for Teens 14-15, 29 / 20 kg push press and 34 / 24 kg clean for Teens Scaled and Masters 55+ Scaled.

    Video Submission Standards
    Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. Also film the process of measuring the line for the handstand push-ups. 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 an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Workout 15.5

    • The athlete may begin the workout seated in the rower but may not grab the handle until the call of “go.” The monitor must be set to zero at the beginning of each round. The athlete or the judge may reset the monitor.
    • This is a standard barbell thruster in which the barbell moves from the bottom of a front squat to full lockout overhead. The bar starts on the ground. No racks allowed. The hip crease must pass below the knees. A full squat clean into the thruster is allowed if the bar is on the ground. Using a ball, box or other object to check for proper depth is not allowed.
    • The barbell must come to a full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the body.

    27-21-15-9 reps for time of:
    Row (calories)
    Thrusters

    Men use 95 lb.
    Women use 65 lb.

    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. Once you have rowed 27 calories you will move to the barbell for 27 thrusters, then back to the rower for the round of 21, and so forth. Each time you return to the rower you or your judge must reset the monitor to zero before rowing.

    Every second counts in this workout. Your score will be the time it takes to complete all 144 repetitions. There is no time cap for this workout.

    This workout ends when the final rep of the thruster is locked out overhead. Time will be recorded in full seconds. Do not round up. If you finish in 9:25.7, your score is 9:25.

    Equipment
    • An indoor rower with a monitor that measures calories
    • Barbell
    • Collars
    • Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division

    For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the event. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.
