9-15-21 reps for time of:
Synchronized thrusters

Men use 95-lb. barbell

Time cap: None
Tiebreak: None

  • This workout begins with the barbells resting on the floor and the athletes standing tall. At the call of “3, 2, 1... go!” the athletes will reach down and begin the synchronized thrusters, with both athletes in the bottom of the squat at the same time. Once 9 reps are complete, they will perform 9 synchronized bar-facing burpees, with both athletes’ chests touching the floor at the same time. They will then perform 15 thrusters, 15 burpees, 21 thrusters and 21 burpees in the same fashion. This workout ends when the last athlete’s feet land on the ground after jumping the barbell on the final rep. Every second counts in this workout. The team’s score will be the time it takes to complete all 90 repetitions. Time will be recorded in full seconds. Do not round up. If the athletes finish in 10:32.7, their score is 10:32. There is no time cap.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting this workout, each athlete will need to create a long straight line on the floor and place their barbell on the center of that line. Film the barbell(s) to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A clock or timer, with the running workout time clearly visible, should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause.
