  • Notes

    Prior to starting the workout, set up the workout area as shown in the floor plan. The athlete should face the camera during both movements. 

    This event begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing behind the line directly under the pull-up bar. At “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will move to the barbell to perform 21 thrusters, then back to the pull-up bar for 21 chest-to-bar pull-ups. They will repeat this couplet for 3 rounds.  

    The event is over when the athlete completes the final chest to bar pull-up. The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the event. 

    After the workout is complete, the athlete will walk to the camera and state the password BEFORE moving or turning off the camera.
