Scoring: For Weight: Heavier is Better

Event #1: Power & Grace


6 Mins to find Max

Power Clean + Hang Squat Clean


Each team will start with an empty barbell. At the call of 3-2-1 Go, each team will have 6 minutes for every member to find a Max Power Clean and Hang Clean.  Only 1 Athlete may work at a time, however, your team members may help add weight to the barbell. Transitioning from the Power Clean to the Hang Squat Clean, the barbell must stay off the ground and above the knee for the repetition to count. Each athlete may lift as many times as they want in the 6 minutes. 


The team’s score for Event #1 is each members’ max lift in the complex added together. If any team member is unable to successfully lift at least one time, the athlete will receive a score of “0.”


For the Power Clean, the barbell will start on the ground and finishes on your shoulders with the elbows in front of the bar with your hips and knees fully extended.  These must be caught above parallel as NO SQUAT CLEANS are permitted.


For the Hang Squat Clean, the barbell MUST STAY above the knee. At the bottom of the squat clean, the hip crease must be below the top of the knee. You MUST catch the clean in the squat. You MAY NOT power clean the weight and then front squat it to complete the repetition. The rep finishes when the athlete is standing tall with the barbell, with elbows in front of the bar, and hips and knees fully extended.

 

 

Scoring: For Time: Fastest is Better | Time Cap: 16

Event #2: 

In Pairs

30-20-10

Hang Power Snatch 85/55 Partner Holds DL Bar 145/85

T2B Partner Hangs from Pull Up Bar

*16 Min Time Cap


This workout will be done in Pairs. At the Call of 3-2-1 Go, the first pair F1F2 will run out to the barbell and complete 30 Hang Power Snatches. While one athlete is working on Hang Power Snatches, the other athlete is holding the barbell at the top of a Deadlift. Repetitions will only be counted when the barbell is held at full extension, with knees and hips locked out. F1 and F2 may switch at any time. Once they complete their 30 Hang Power Snatches, they will move on to the pull up bar where they will complete 30 Toes to Bar. While one athlete is working on Toes to Bar the other athlete must be hanging from the pull up bar. Again they may switch as often as they like until all 30 are complete. 


Once all 30 Toes to Bar are complete, they will run back to their starting pad where the second pair F3F4 will then take on 30 Hang Power Snatch and 30 Toes to Bar in the same fashion.


The workout goes as follows:

Pair 1 F1F2 30 Hang Power Snatch 30 Toes to Bar

Pair 2 F3F4 30 Hang Power Snatch 30 Toes to Bar

Pair 1 F1F2 20 Hang Power Snatch 20 Toes to Bar

Pair 1 F1F2 10 Hang Power Snatch 10 Toes to Bar

Pair 2 F3F4 10 Hang Power Snatch 10 Toes to Bar


Once the second pair finishes their 10 Toes to Bar, they will run back to their starting pad where time will be called.
