  • Notes

    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.
