  • Notes

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

    This workout begins with the athlete standing behind the first 5-foot work zone. At “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will move into the first work zone to complete 50 dumbbell shoulder-to-overheads. Then they will advance the dumbbells to the next work zone for 50 dumbbell deadlifts. After completing the dumbbell deadlifts, they may move a single dumbbell to the final work zone beyond the GHD, then return to the GHD for 50 GHD sit-ups. After the GHD sit-ups, they can move to the final work zone and accumulate 100 single-arm dumbbell overhead squats, switching arms as needed. Finally, they will move the dumbbells back to the deadlift work zone and cycle through each movement in the same fashion. Time stops after they complete the final dumbbell shoulder-to-overhead.

    The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the event or the total number of repetitions completed at the time cap. There is no tiebreak for this event. 

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