Complete this sequence for 3 rounds. After the final double-under on the final round, the mandatory 1-minute rest period begins.

1 of 10The inside of the box for the handstand push-up must measure 40 inches wide and 24 inches deep.2 of 10The arms must be fully extended and in line with the body before the athlete can descend. Each rep begins and ends with the athlete in the lockout position with the heels against the wall, arms fully extended and shoulders in line with the body. The hands must remain inside the 40-by-24-inch box. If any part of the hand, including any part of the fingers, touches the tape line at any time, the repetition will not count. The athlete will need to start again from the lockout position.3 of 10At the bottom, the head must make contact with the ground. If the head and hands are on different surfaces, the surfaces must be level (i.e., if the hands are on plates and there is a pad under the head, the top of the pad must be level with the top of the plates). The feet do not need to remain in contact with the wall for the duration of the movement, but the feet must return to the wall at the beginning and end of each rep. Kipping is NOT allowed during the first triplet. Any repetition that is assisted by the hips or legs will not count. Only the heels may touch the wall during the repetition. Kipping IS allowed during the second triplet. The feet may be no wider than the width of the hands.4 of 10The rep is credited when the athlete returns to the lockout position with the heels on the wall; arms, hips and legs fully extended; and shoulders in line with the body.5 of 10The athlete and the dumbbells must remain in front of the tape line. If the athlete’s feet touch or cross the line at any time, the rep will not count.
