  • Notes

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

    This test begins with all four athletes standing behind the line furthest from the barbells on the far side of the competition floor. After “3, 2, 1 … go,” all four athletes move to the barbells and complete 10 synchronized front squats. After completing the front squats, the athletes move to the handstand-walk start line. Working simultaneously in MM/FF pairs, complete 3 handstand walks each — one athlete completes a 25-foot section, kicks down, and then their partner completes the same 25-foot section. The pair continues trading off in this manner until each person has completed three 25-foot sections. Once all four athletes complete 3 handstand walks each, the team moves back to the barbells and continues this sequence until the 15-minute time cap is reached. 

    The team’s score will be the total number of reps completed before the 15-minute time cap. If the team is time-capped during the handstand walk, every handstand walk completed by each member of the team counts as 1 rep. 



    There is no tiebreak for this test.


    • Two judges are required for Test 1: 
      • One to judge men while handstand walking. 
      • One to judge women while handstand walking. 
    • Tape to mark the floor. 
    • Barbell, plates, and collars.* 

    * 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.
