Complete as many rounds as possible in 15 minutes of:
19 wall-ball shots
Men throw 14-lb. ball to 10-ft. target
The workout begins with the medicine ball on the ground and athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete will pick up the ball and perform the wall-ball shots. After 19 reps are complete, the athlete will move to the rower and pull 19 calories. The monitor must read 19 calories before the athlete can unstrap and move back to the wall-ball shots for the next round.
The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed within the 15-minute time cap. Each calorie completed on the row will be equal to 1 rep.
There is no tiebreak for this workout.

VIDEO SUBMISSION STANDARDS
All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Prior to starting the workout, clearly show the weight of the medicine ball and measure the height of the target. Your judge and a clock or timer with the running workout time should be clearly visible throughout the entire workout. The monitor of the rower should also be clearly visible throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all movements 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.
