  • Notes

    Prior to starting the workout, set up the workout area as shown in the floor plan.

    This workout begins with the athletes and dumbbells behind the first 5-foot work zone. At “3, 2, 1 … go,” the men will move their dumbbells into the first work zone and complete 35 synchro  dumbbell shoulder-to-overheads. Then they will advance the dumbbells to the next work zone for 35 synchro dumbbell deadlifts. After completing the deadlifts, they will each move a single dumbbell to the final work zone beyond the GHDs, then return to the GHD for 35 synchro GHD sit-ups. After the GHD sit-ups, they will move to the final work zone and accumulate 75 synchro single-arm dumbbell overhead squats, switching arms as needed. After the overhead squats, they will move the dumbbells back to the deadlift work zone and once again cycle through each movement in the same fashion. 

    Once the final shoulder-to-overhead is complete, the men will move their dumbbells back over the starting line, at which point the women may begin their portion of the event. The women will work through the event in the same fashion as the men. Time stops after the women complete their final dumbbell shoulder-to-overhead.

    The team’s score will be the total time taken 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 team must walk to the camera and state the password BEFORE moving or turning off the camera.
