100 alternating dumbbell snatches
100 bar-facing burpees
♂ 35-lb. dumbbell
Time cap: 20 minutes
Prior to starting this event, each athlete will need to create a long straight line on the floor and place their burpee barbell on the center of that line.
This event begins with the dumbbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may perform 100 alternating dumbbell snatches, followed by 50 calories on the rower, and finally, 100 bar-facing burpees. Receiving any assistance other than turning on the rower is not permitted unless safety is an immediate concern.
The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the entire event or the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute time cap. There is no tiebreak for this event. Do NOT use a countdown timer.
