Prior to starting, athletes must set up the competition area as shown in the floor plan with a box for the kipping and strict handstand push-ups and a separate setup for the deficit handstand push-ups.
This workout begins with the athlete standing inside the handstand push-up box. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete will step over the line and perform 50 dumbbell walking lunges, holding the dumbbells in the hang position and taking 10 steps in one direction before turning around. Once the dumbbell walking lunges are complete, the athlete will perform 30 handstand push-ups. Upon completion of the handstand push-ups, the athlete will return to the dumbbells and perform 40 walking lunges with the dumbbells in the front-rack position. Upon completion of the 40 walking lunges the athlete will return to the wall and perform 20 deficit handstand push-ups. Finally, the athlete will perform 30 overhead walking lunges and 10 strict handstand push-ups. Time stops when the athlete reaches lockout in the final handstand push-up.
The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the entire workout or the total number of repetitions completed before the 15-minute time cap.
Athletes may not receive assistance moving or resetting the dumbbells.
