  • Notes

    Prior to starting, athletes must set up the competition area as shown in the floor plan. 

    This workout begins with the athlete standing behind the line, away from the wall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may move to the wall for 15 handstand push-ups, then the dumbbells for 15 shoulder-to-overheads, then to the rower for 15 calories. Complete this sequence for 5 rounds. Time stops when the monitor reads 15 calories on the final row. The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the workout or the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute time cap.

    There is no tiebreak for this workout.

    Athletes competing in the Occupational Games MUST perform the 16-54 workout variation.


    • Two dumbbells at the appropriate weight for your division

    • Tape to mark the floor

    • Concept2 Rower
