Download the workout description and scorecard for your division:
Prior to starting, set up the floor plan as shown. As long as the box is 8 feet from the handstand push-up wall, any configuration may be used. The GHD must be unobstructed by the box when viewed from the side.
This test begins with the athlete touching the box behind the line. After “3, 2, 1 … go,” move to the wall and complete 6 chest-to-wall handstand push-ups. After completing the handstand push-ups, move to the GHD and perform 9 GHD sit-ups, then move to the box and perform 12 box jumps. Repeat the sequence for the duration of the 10 minutes. Your score will be the total number of reps completed in 10 minutes.
Age-Group Quarterfinal Test 2B will start as soon as the 10-minute AMRAP is complete. Athletes will have from 10:00 to 15:00 to establish a 1-rep-max clean. The score for Test 2B will be the heaviest successful weight lifted in pounds.
There is no tiebreak for Test 2A. In the event of a tie on Test 2B, the athlete who performed more reps in Test 2A will win the tie.
- Tape to mark the floor.
- Box of appropriate height for the athlete’s division. The top of the box must be at least 15-by-15 inches.
- GHD set to the appropriate height.
- Barbell (35/45 lb or 15/20 kg). **Note: For this test, a 15-kg bar MUST be totaled as 33 lb. A 20-kg bar MUST be totaled as 44 lb.
- Bumper plates.*
* The official weight must be recorded in pounds. If converting kilograms to pounds, round to the nearest pound (.5 and up round up, .4 and below round down).
- 200.1 to 200.4 lb rounds down to 200 lb
- 200.5 to 200.9 lb rounds up to 201 lb
See more instructions about using equipment measured in kilograms on the scorecard.
Any weight increases using change plates must result in a whole number (no decimal points). Collars cannot be included in the total weight.
Be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete all the movements. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions.
Any athlete who in any way alters the equipment or movements described in this document or shown in the test standards video may be disqualified from the competition. Unless otherwise stated, athletes may not receive assistance with their equipment during the test.
Requirements for Using Equipment Measured in Kilograms
Athletes using any piece of equipment measured in kilograms must use the following conversion chart for each piece BEFORE the weight is totaled. This includes athletes using a barbell measured in kilograms with plates measured in pounds.
Then round the sum to the nearest whole pound (.5 and up round up, .4 and below round down).
See the scorecard for examples.
Video Submission Standards
- Film ALL competition area measurements so the distances and weights can be seen clearly.
- Use the camera placement provided in the floor plan. The camera should capture a ¾ view of the athlete during all movements.
- A full view of the athlete must be maintained for the entire test.
- Avoid placing the camera low to the ground. We recommend placing the camera at least 3 feet off the ground.
- Videos must be uncut and unedited to accurately display the performance.
- A clock or timer must be visible throughout the test.
- Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected.
- Make sure lighting does not obstruct the view of the athlete, equipment, or workout area. Glare from the background or dark spaces makes it hard to review videos.
- Do NOT use a countdown timer.
- Ensure the judge does not obstruct the view of the athlete.

The athlete must move into the lockout position with their hands on the line before descending for the first rep. The athlete may NOT cartwheel or otherwise kick up into the handstand position. If the athlete comes down from the wall at any time, they start again from the floor before beginning the next rep.4 of 22The arms must be fully extended and in line with the body before the athlete can descend.

If you are using a GHD that is BELOW the height requirement, you may elevate the GHD to create the correct distance.16 of 22If you are using a GHD that EXCEEDS the height requirement, you may touch an elevated target that creates the correct distance — e.g., women may use a 6-inch (15-centimeter) riser on a 43-inch (109-centimeter) GHD to create a net height of 37 inches (94 centimeters).17 of 22Start with both feet on the ground and face the side of the box.
