Masters Athletes (35+):

You will still sign up for either RX or the Scaled division. You will still do the exact workouts in the RX & Scaled divisions. You still have the chance to win the RX or Scaled divisions! The only difference is that you will additionally have a "masters" leaderboard within your division. At the end of the competition, we will recognize the top "masters" team in each RX & Scaled divisions and they will stand on the podium and be rewarded with a prize!

Regarding Masters Athletes, both athletes must be 35+ to be considered a team on the Masters Leaderboard.

 

The cool thing is that you’ll actually have the opportunity to win twice! As a Masters Team in your division, you can win BOTH the Open AND Masters- if you’re able to show the young bucks who’s boss!

 

There will be one Master's Team winner for each division.

While one partner is working, the other must remain in the designated holding area. In order to switch working partners, one must tag the other and take their place in the holding area. After completing the 3 rounds, they will complete a final cash out of 80 burpees over the rower.

⁃ 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. 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.

 

Hanging Knee Raise

⁃ 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.

 

Row

⁃ When athletes start the row, it must start at 0 calories. The athletes will be responsible for starting/resetting their own monitors. Athletes may not get off of the rower until the calorie mark reads 40 for men, 32 for ladies. If they do, they will be given a 5 second/rep penalty.

⁃ 200m Run

*While one partner runs, the other has to complete 120 Single Unders

Overview

 

⁃ Athletes will have 14:00 to complete this workout. It starts with a 200m run that only one partner has to complete. While that partner runs, the other has to do 60 Double Unders (Rx) or 120 Single Unders (Scaled). Once Partner A has completed the run and Partner B has completed the jump rope, they can start chipping away at their rounds of “DT”. One round of DT is 12 Deadlifts, 9 Hang Power Clean, and 6 Shoulder to Overhead. This can be split between partners however you would like as long as all reps are completed and in correct order. 

 

Run

 

⁃ There will be a designated running lane for all runners with both an exit (starting the run) and an entrance (finishing the run). However, the first 200m run will start with Partner A outside and Partner B inside at their designated barbell. There will be a clear path of where you need to go for the 200m run and a judge standing at the halfway mark.

 

Double Unders/Single Unders


⁃ As the clock counts down, the non-running partner can stand in their designated area with the jump rope in their hands, ready to start their set. Once the clock starts, they can immediately start accumulating their jump rope reps while the other partner is running.

Deadlift

 

⁃ For the Deadlifts, the rep will start with the barbell on the ground. The rep is counted once hips & knees have reached full extension and the head/shoulders are behind the bar.

 

Hang Power Clean

 

⁃ For Hang Power Cleans, the rep will start with hips & knees in full extension. This means that the rep can start at the top of a deadlift as well as the top of a successful hang power clean with the bar in the front rack position. The rep is counted once the bar has been brought into the front rack position and both hips & knees are in full extension. A power clean from the floor for your first rep will NOT count.

 

Shoulder to Overhead

 

⁃ Each rep begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead and over the middle of the body. Hips & knees need to be at full extension as well. You can choose to do any variation of Shoulder to Overhead as long as you meet the standard (Strict Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, Split Jerk). 

 

Other


⁃ The running lanes will be specified on the day of the event. Keep in mind that even if the partner gets back from the 200m run, the double unders/single unders must be completed before they can start accumulating rounds of “DT”. The partner that gets back from the run CAN help the other partner by completing some of their jump rope reps if they still are not complete.
