  • Notes

    Prior to starting, set up the floor plan as shown. As long as the barbell is 8 feet away from the pull-up bar and the rope, any configuration is acceptable. Any requested video must clearly capture a ¾ angle of the athlete during the chest-to-bar pull-ups and bar muscle-ups. Athletes may receive assistance changing the deadlift load or may set up multiple barbells.

    This test begins with the athlete standing under the pull-up bar. After “3, 2, 1, … go,” move to the barbell and perform 21 deadlifts with the lightest weight, then move to the pull-up bar and perform 21 chest-to-bar pull-ups. Then, move back to the barbell and perform 15 deadlifts at the second weight, then move back to the pull-up bar and perform 15 bar muscle-ups. Finally, move back to the barbell for 9 deadlifts at the heaviest weight, then to the rope for 9 rope climbs. Time stops when you complete the final rope climb.

    Your score will be the total time taken to complete the test. In the event of a time cap, your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 15-minute cap.

    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.

    Video Submission Standards

    • All athletes MUST submit a video with their score for validation purposes.
    • 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.
    • Avoid placing the camera low to the ground. We recommend placing the camera at least 3 feet (90 cm) 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.
