Prior to starting, set up the floor plan as shown. The monitor of the rower must be clearly visible. The V-ups must be performed in front of the GHD (closer to the camera).
This test begins with the athlete seated on the rower with hands off of the handle. After “3, 2, 1, … go,” row 1,000 meters (counting up). When the rower reads 1,000 meters, move to the GHD and complete 50 GHD sit-ups, then move back to the rower for 500 meters, then to the floor for 25 V-ups. Then, repeat the sequence. Continue in this fashion until the 20-minute cap.
Your score will be the total time number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute time cap. If you are time-capped on the rower, once the monitor has come to rest, every 10 meters completed will count as 1 repetition (rounded down).
Example: 537 meters = 53 reps
