  • NOTES  

    Prior to starting the event, each athlete will need to mark a box on the ground and a foot line on the wall, and create the deficit for the handstand push-ups (details in Movement Standards section). 

    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 perform 10 deadlifts and 20 handstand push-ups, then move to the second barbell for 30 front squats. Once the 30 front squats are completed, the athlete will move back to the deadlift bar to begin the second round.

    The athlete’s score will be the time it takes to complete the event or the number of repetitions completed at the time cap. There is no tiebreak for this event.

    Athletes may set up multiple barbells. If one barbell is used, the athlete may receive assistance changing the load on the bar. Receiving any assistance other than adjusting loading is not permitted unless safety is an immediate concern.

    Do NOT use a countdown timer.

    • Collars to secure the plates on the barbell
