  • Notes

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

    This workout begins with the athlete standing across the 5-foot line, facing the GHD. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may move to the GHD for 60 GHD sit-ups, then to the rope for 6 rope climbs, and then back to the starting position facing the GHD for 60 alternating single-leg squats. Continue in this fashion, decreasing the number of repetitions each round. Time stops after the completion of the final single-leg squat.

    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.

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

    Tiebreak (if applicable)

    The time should be recorded after the completion of each set of GHD sit-ups.

    If the athlete completes the workout before the time cap, there will be no tiebreaker. 

    If the athlete does not complete the workout before the time cap, when they log their score they will enter the total number of reps they completed as well as the time at which they completed their last full set of GHD sit-ups. 

    In the case of a tie (i.e., athletes complete the same number of reps), the athlete with the lower tiebreak time will be ranked higher. 

    Do NOT use a countdown timer.


    • GHD set to the appropriate height
