  • Notes

    Prior to starting, set up the floor plan as shown. 

    This test will be conducted in M/M and F/F pairs working in 3-minute intervals. This test begins with the two men seated on the rowers with hands off of the handle. After “3, 2, 1 … go,” both athletes row 400 meters on their separate rowers. Once both athletes are finished with 400 meters, they will move to the barbells and complete 10 synchronized shoulder-to-overheads. Once all 10 shoulder-to-overheads are complete, they will move to the rope and complete as many rope climbs as possible in the time remaining. Any completed rope climb where the athlete’s feet have left the ground before the 3-minute interval (or final time cap) will count. As soon as the M/M pair’s 3 minutes ends, the F/F pair will perform the same sequence for 3 minutes. Continue in this manner until both pairs have completed 3 rounds. 

    The score will be the total number of rope climbs completed by the team. 

    Use a single timer, counting up from 0:00. 

    Timeline: 0:00-3:00 M, 3:00-6:00 W, 6:00-9:00 M, 9:00-12:00 W, 12:00-15:00 M, 15:00-18:00 W. 



    Record the time (total elapsed time) when the final female pair finishes their last set of shoulder-to-overheads. In the event of a tie, the team with the faster time will win.


    • Tape to mark the floor. 
    • Barbell, plates, and collars.* 
    • Concept2 rowers. 
    • One 15-foot climbing rope, measured and marked to the designated height. 

    * The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms for the front squats are 56 kg (125 lb), and 83 kg (185 lb). 

    Be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete all the movements. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions. 

    Any team 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, teams may not receive assistance with their equipment during the test.

    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 athletes during all movements. 
    • A full view of the athletes 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 athletes.
