  • Notes

    Prior to starting the workout, set up the floor plan as shown. The camera must be placed by the rower, and the monitor must be clearly visible. If the monitor is not visible, your submission may be invalidated. The bench press setup must also be clearly visible in the background. Take a short video to test and review your setup BEFORE you start the workout so you can verify the monitor is clearly visible.

    Begin the workout seated on the rower with your hands off the paddle. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” begin rowing. Once the rower reads at least 500 m, move to the bench press and complete 30 reps. Then, row 1,000 m before returning to the bench for 20 reps. Finally, complete a 2,000-m row and 10 bench presses. Time stops when you reach lockout on the final bench press.

    Your score will be the total time taken to complete the workout. In the event of a time cap, your score will be the total number of repetitions completed at the 30-minute mark. There is no tiebreak for this workout.

    Note: If you reach the time cap on the rower, each 100 m will count as 1 repetition.

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