The workout starts with the barbell on the ground. 3-2-1 GO, one male and one female will stand the bar all the way up (hips, knees fully opened) and then can come back to the hang to begin the hang power snatch. Once the bar is up the bar CANNOT touch the ground until the full 150 reps are completed, or else a penalty will be assessed. When you switch out partners you will have to "rack" the bar, using your teammates as a human rack. Both athletes must do the same number of reps (they do not have to be synchronized) then both can switch out, using the a human rack. You could finish your set faster than your partner but then you must hold on to the bar until your partner does the same amount of reps as you did before switching out. One male and one female are always working at a time.
