For total time:
3 rounds of:
12 bar-facing burpees
Then, rest 3 minutes before continuing with:
3 rounds of:
10 chin-over-bar pull-ups
12 bar-facing burpees
Men snatch 65 lb., may step over bar on the burpees
Time cap: 12 minutes
Prior to starting this workout, the athlete will need to set up a barbell, with standard plates, to jump over during the burpees. This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may perform 10 snatches and 12 bar-facing burpees for 3 rounds. Upon completion of the first couplet, the athlete MUST rest 3 minutes while the clock continues to run. The athlete then may continue to the second portion of the workout: 3 rounds of 10 bar muscle-ups and 12 bar-facing burpees.
The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the entire workout or the total number of repetitions completed before the 12-minute time cap.
If the athlete doesn't complete the first couplet until after the 9-minute mark, their workout is over. In this case, the athlete’s score will be 66 reps (with a tiebreak time).
- Standard bumper plates (18-in. diameter) to load to the appropriate weight for your division*
- Pull-up bar
*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 43 kg (95 lb.), 29 kg (65 lb.), 20 kg (45 lb.) and 15 kg (35 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.
This workout includes a tiebreak. If all 132 reps are completed prior to the 12-minute time cap, your score will be your total time, and there will be no tiebreaker. However, if you are not able to complete the entire workout in the allotted time, a tiebreaker will be factored into your final score. During the workout, be sure to note your time at the end of the final burpee in the first couplet. When you submit your score, there will be a space for your final rep count and an additional field for you to enter the elapsed time at which you completed your last full set of bar-facing burpees in the first half of the workout. In the case where two athletes have the same score (total 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. Do not use a countdown timer.
VIDEO SUBMISSION STANDARDS
Prior to starting, film the pull-up bar, plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Your judge and a clock or timer with the running workout time should be clearly visible 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.
1 of 16The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one motion. Power, squat and split snatches are all permitted, but in each instance the athlete’s feet must be brought back in line. This is not a ground-to-overhead any way. A clean and jerk is a no rep. Touch and go is permitted but deliberately bouncing the barbell is not. The bar can be dropped from overhead. If a barbell is dropped, the barbell must settle on the ground before the athlete begins the next repetition.2 of 16If you begin with an empty barbell, or a barbell that has plates smaller than standard bumper plates, each repetition must begin with the barbell clearly below the knees.3 of 16The rep is credited when the barbell is at full lockout overhead, with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over or slightly behind the middle of the body with the feet in line.4 of 16The burpee must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell. Athletes using an empty barbell or small-diameter plates for the snatch will need to set up a second barbell with 18-in. plates for the burpees.5 of 16The athlete jumps or steps back to lie on the ground. The athlete’s head must be behind the barbell. The chest and thighs must touch the ground at the bottom. The hands and feet must remain inside the width of the plates at the bottom of the burpee. From this position, the athlete can step or jump to their feet.6 of 16The athlete must jump over the barbell using a two-foot takeoff. Single-legged jumping or stepping over is not permitted. The athlete does not need to land with both feet at the same time.7 of 16The rep is credited when both feet have touched the ground on the opposite side of the barbell. Before starting the next rep, the athlete must be perpendicular to and facing the barbell.8 of 16The athlete must begin with or pass through a hang below the bar, with the arms fully extended and the feet off the ground. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but pull-overs, rolls to support and glide kips are not permitted. No portion of the foot may rise above the height of the bar during the kip.9 of 16The rep is credited when the arms are fully locked out while the athlete is in the support position above the bar with the shoulders over or in front of the bar. Athletes must pass through some portion of a dip-to-lockout over the bar. Only the hands and no other part of the arm may touch the pull-up bar to assist the athlete in completing the rep. Once on top, the hands must stay in contact with the bar, and athletes must maintain support with their arms. Removing the hands and resting while on top of the bar is not allowed. Athletes may wrap tape around the pull-up bar OR wear hand protection (gymnastics-style grips, gloves, etc.), but they may not tape the bar and wear hand protection.10 of 16This is a standard chin-over-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are permitted as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom, with the athlete’s feet off the ground.11 of 16The rep is credited when the chin breaks the horizontal plane of the bar. Athletes may wrap tape around the pull-up bar OR wear hand protection (gymnastics-style grips, gloves, etc.), but they may not tape the bar and wear hand protection.12 of 16This is a standard chest-to-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom, with the athlete’s feet off the ground.13 of 16The rep is credited when the chest clearly comes into contact with the bar below the collarbone. Athletes may wrap tape around the pull-up bar OR wear hand protection (gymnastics-style grips, gloves, etc.), but they may not tape the bar AND wear hand protection.14 of 16For the jumping chest-to-bar pull-up, the bar should be at least six inches above the top of the athlete’s head when the athlete is standing tall. The athlete may need to use plates or other stable platforms to decrease the distance between the top of the head and the bar.15 of 16At the bottom of the movement, the athlete must lower their body so the arms are fully extended.16 of 16The rep is credited when the chest clearly comes into contact with the bar below the collarbone. Athletes may wrap tape around the pull-up bar or wear hand protection (gymnastics-style grips, gloves, etc.), but they may not tape the bar and wear hand protection.
