Week 1

On a 12:00 running clock

Part A (8:00 cap)
21-15-9 of:
Row calories
DB thrusters, 50/35


Part B
Max ground to overhead in remaining time

*Score on Part A is the time for completion OR, 8:00 cap + 1 second for each remaining rep

**Score on Part B is the maximum weight lifted before the 12:00 time cap

Description and movement standards
Athletes may be seated on the rower at the start of the event but may not touch the handle until the clock starts. Each round, the rower must read the correct number of calories BEFORE the athlete exits the rower. The rower monitor must be reset to “0” before each round (you can have someone reset it for you). The athletes will then go back and forth with the row calories and the DB thrusters until 21 calories/reps of each are completed in round 1, 15 calories/reps of each are completed in round 2, and 9 calories/reps of each are completed in round 3.

Upon completion of the 9th DB thruster in the last round, the athlete/judge will note the time on the running clock. This is your score for Part A. If the clock reaches 8:00 and you are still working on your 21-15-9, stop where you are and take note of the reps you have completed by the 8:00 mark. Your score for Part A will be 8:00 + 1 second for every calorie/rep you have remaining of the 21-15-9.

Once you have completed Part A, or if you reached the 8:00 time cap for Part A, you can move into Part B. Part B is a max ground to overhead (scored in weight). You can take as many attempts as you like before the 12:00 mark, but your score will be the heaviest weight lifted within the 12:00 cap. The movement standards for each piece are listed below.

DB thruster standard
The DBs must start at the athlete’s shoulders w/ some part of the DB in contact with the shoulders. The athlete will perform a squat where the hip crease depends below the top of the knee cap (below parallel), then drive the weight up overhead in one motion to full lockout overhead. Hips, knees, and elbows need to be completely locked out at the top of each rep for it to count, and there can be no rebend of the knees or “jerking” of the weight during the pressing portion of the movement. Squat cleaning the first rep from the ground is allowed.

Ground to overhead standard
The lift must start from the ground (no hang reps), but any kind of clean is allowed (power, squat, muscle, split) and any kind of press/jerk is allowed (strict press, push press, push jerk, split jerk), and an athlete is allowed to snatch the weight if they prefer (power, squat, split). The primary points of performance are that the weight must start on the ground and can’t re-contact the ground until the lift is completed. If any kind of split stance is used to lift the weight overhead, feet must come back to within the shoulders and in line in the frontal plane. Collars must be used on the barbell, and athletes must change their own weights.
