Prior to starting the workout, set up the workout area as shown in the floor plan. The camera must be placed on the same side as the rower, and the monitor must be clearly visible. The rope must be on the opposite side of the rower.
This workout begins with the athlete seated on the rower with their hands at their sides, clearly off the paddle. At “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will complete a 2,000-meter row, then 60 meters of handstand walking, changing directions after every 5 meters, and then 5 legless rope climbs. They will continue this sequence with a 1,000-meter row, 40-meter handstand walk, and 4 legless rope climbs, then finally a 500-meter row, 20-meter handstand walk, and 3 legless rope climbs. Time stops when the athlete touches above the 15-foot mark, completing the final legless rope climb.
The athlete’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 athlete will walk to the camera and state the password BEFORE moving or turning off the camera.

1 of 5The monitor on the rower must be set to zero at the beginning of the row. Athletes may have assistance resetting the rower between rounds. The athlete must stay seated on the rower with their hands holding the paddle until the monitor reads at least the designated distance. If the athlete reaches the time cap on the rower, every 100 meters completed when the rower comes to rest will count as a rep (rounded down, e.g., 475 meters = 4 reps).2 of 5When kicking up, the hands (including the fingers) must be placed on the ground BEHIND the line designating the 5-meter segment. Placing the hands on or over the line when kicking up constitutes a no rep.3 of 5Each 5-meter segment will count as 1 rep. Both hands, including palms and fingers, must touch the ground completely clear of the line marking the end of the 5-meter segment before the feet touch the ground. If at any time the athlete comes down from their hands before finishing a 5-meter segment, they must repeat the entire segment. Athletes are not required to kick down after completing a segment but MUST change directions after completing each 5-meter increment.4 of 5Each rep starts with both feet on the ground. The athlete may jump into the rope climb. The athlete CANNOT use legs to assist with the ascent.5 of 5The rep is credited when one hand clearly touches above the designated 15-foot mark. Athletes may choose to touch a fixed object, such as a beam or the ceiling, so long as the object is at least 15 feet high. Only after the athlete has clearly made the touch at the top of the climb can they use their legs to descend the rope. There are no additional requirements during the descent of the climb.
