Complete as many rounds as possible in 6 minutes of:
8 thrusters, 115 lb.
This event begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may begin performing thrusters. After 8 reps of thrusters are completed, the athlete will complete 50 double-unders before returning to the thrusters for the next round. Athletes will continue working through this sequence until the time cap is reached. Receiving any assistance with the equipment is not permitted unless safety is an immediate concern.
The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 6-minute time cap. There is no tiebreak for this event.

1 of 3Each set of thrusters begins with the barbell on the ground. The crease of the hip must clearly pass below the top of the knees in the bottom position. No squat racks allowed. A full squat clean into the thruster is allowed when the bar is taken from the floor.2 of 3The rep is credited when the barbell reaches full lockout overhead, with the hips, knees, and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over, or slightly behind, the middle of the body. The rep must be completed in one fluid motion from the bottom of the squat. A front squat followed by a jerk is not allowed. If the barbell is dropped from overhead, it must settle on the ground before the athlete picks it up for the next repetition.3 of 3For the double-unders, 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. The rope must begin on the ground at the start of each round.
