STANDARDS #3


Thrusters. This is a standard barbell thruster in which the barbell moves from the bottom of a front squat to full lockout overhead. The bar starts on the ground. No racks allowed. The hip crease must clearly pass below the top of the knees in the bottom position. A full squat clean into the thruster is allowed when the bar is taken from the floor. If the barbell is dropped from overhead, it must settle on the ground before the athlete picks it up for the next repetition. The rep is credited when the barbell is locked out overhead, with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the athlete’s body.


DB Step Up & Over. For every repetition of the dumbbell box step-up & over, the athlete starts with both feet on the ground and faces the box. With the dumbbell supported in any position but not resting on the leg, the athlete must step to the top of the box and off to the opposite side. Only the athlete’s feet may make contact with the box. If the athlete is holding the dumbbell with one hand, the free hand may not push into the legs during the step-up. The rep is credited when both of the athlete’s feet are on the opposite side of the box. Athletes do not need to alternate legs to start each step.

STANDARDS WOD #2


Double Unders. This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. Only successful jumps are counted, not attempts.


Single Unders. This is the standard single-under in which the rope passes under the feet once for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. Only successful jumps are counted, not attempts.


Dumbbell Power Snatch. The dumbbell snatch starts with the dumbbell on the ground and finishes with the dumbbell directly overhead. At the bottom of the movement, BOTH heads of the dumbbell must touch the ground. The dumbbell must be lifted overhead in one motion. Touch-and-go is permitted. Bouncing the dumbbell is not allowed. Athletes do not need to alternate arms after each repetition and may alternate until a successful rep is achieved. The non-lifting hand and arm may not be in contact with the body during the repetition. At the top, the arms, hips, and knees must be fully locked out with the dumbbell clearly over the middle of the athlete’s body when viewed from profile. Once the athlete has reached lockout, the repetition will count. The athlete may choose to do a split style snatch. However, both feet must return and be in line under the athlete’s body while the dumbbell is locked out overhead for the repetition to count.


Calorie Row. The monitor on the rower must be set to zero at the beginning of each row. The athlete may have assistance resetting the monitor. The athlete must stay seated on the rower until the monitor reads 20 calories.


Toes-To-Bar. In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. At the start of each rep, the arms must be fully extended and the heels must be brought back behind the bar. Athletes may wear hand protection (gymnastics style grips, gloves, etc.), but they may not tape the bar. Overhand, underhand, or mixed grip are all permitted. The rep is credited when both feet come into contact with the bar at the same time, between the hands. Any part of the feet may make contact with the bar.


Knee Raises. Scaled athletes will perform hanging knee-raises. In the hanging knee-raise, the arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the heels must be brought back behind the bar. Overhand, underhand, or mixed grip are all permitted. The rep is credited when the knees are above the height of the hips.
