Event Overview

Event 4 begins with all four athletes standing under the pullup bar. At the call of “GO”, athletes advance and begin the 1 mile run and 2k row. Two athletes will be working at the same time and teammates may substitute as desired.

Next, the team will move to the rig and begin 5 rounds of 30 synchronized wall ball shots and 20 synchronized toes to bar. Teams will work in mixed gender pairs, 1 female and 1 male. Wall balls must be completed before moving on to toes to bar.  Athletes may substitute as desired throughout the 5 rounds.  There must always be mixed genders working simultaneously.

  • Wall ball shot synchronization begins when both athletes are below parallel in their squats. Balls will be thrown and must successfully hit the target for the rep to count. If a shot is missed, athletes must restart the rep in the synchronized squatting position.
  • Synchronized toes to bar reps will be scored when athletes’ toes touch the bar at the same time.

Finally, the team must perform 100 feet of synchronized dumbbell overhead walking lunges. To perform the lunges, all 4 team members must have their dumbbells overhead.  If one or more dumbbells are shouldered or set down, then all athletes must stop lunging until all 4 dumbbells are overhead again.  Once all four team members clear the first 50 feet, they must move the dumbbell to the other hand to complete the second 50-foot segment. 

The workout will end once all four athletes complete the second 50-foot segment, cross the finish line and place their dumbbells on the floor. 

Dropping the dumbbell is not permitted at any time. If this happens, all four teammates must redo the last 25 feet of lunges or begin their current segment again, depending on where the dumbbell was dropped.
