Prior to starting this workout, each athlete will need to create a long straight line on the floor and place their box on the center of that line. This workout begins with the dumbbell resting on the floor and the athlete standing tall. At the call of “3, 2, 1… go!” the athlete will reach down and begin the dumbbell snatches, alternating arms after each repetition. Once all reps are complete, they will move to the box and perform 15 burpee box jump-overs, then move back to the snatch, etc. In each round the number of repetitions of the snatch will increase. This workout ends when the feet land on the ground on the other side of the box on the final rep.
Every second counts in this workout. The athlete’s score will be the time it takes to complete all 225 repetitions. Time will be recorded in full seconds. Do not round up. If the athlete finishes in 10:32.7, their score is 10:32. There is a 20-minute time cap. If they do not finish all 225 reps before the time cap, their score will be the number of reps completed.
If all 225 reps are completed before the time cap, there is no tiebreaker for this workout. If all 225 reps are NOT completed within the 20-minute time cap, your score will be the total number of reps completed, with ties being broken by the time of completion of your last full set of burpee box jump-overs. At the end of each set of burpee box jump-overs, time should be marked and recorded for score submission. In the case where two athletes have completed the same number of reps, the athlete with the lower tiebreak time will be ranked higher.
Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recommended you set your clock to count up.
• Dumbbell of appropriate weight for your division*†
• Box that is the appropriate height for your division. The top of the box must be at least 15-by-15 inches.
• Tape or line that bisects the burpee box jump area
* Kilogram dumbbells cannot be used by athletes competing in the U.S. or Canada. If you are using adjustable dumbbells, the largest plates allowed are standard-sized 10-lb. (5 kg) metal change plates (9 inches in diameter). When the dumbbell is at rest, the bottom of the handle cannot be more than 4 inches off the ground. Any athlete using an unconventional or unmarked dumbbell will need to confirm the weight of the dumbbell on a scale and clearly show the height of the handle with a ruler or measuring tape in their video submission. Kettlebells, fat bells or other non-traditional dumbbells are not allowed.
† The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 22.5 kg (50 lb.), 15 kg (35 lb.), 10 kg (20 lb.) and 5 kg (10 lb.).
For each workout, 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 workout standards video may be disqualified from the competition.
VIDEO SUBMISSION STANDARDS
Prior to starting, film the dumbbell and box to be used so the loads and height can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A clock or timer, with the running workout time clearly visible, should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause.
