220 6
  • 5 Rounds for Time
  • 15 Handstand Push-Ups
  • 15 Dumbbell Shoulder-to-Overheads (2x50/35 lb)
  • 15 calorie Row
  • Time Cap: 20 minutes

Prior to starting, athletes must set up the competition area as shown in the floor plan.  This workout begins with the athlete standing behind the line, away from the wall. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may move to the wall for 15 handstand push-ups, then the dumbbells for 15 shoulder-to-overheads, then to the rower for 15 calories. Complete this sequence for 5 rounds. Time stops when the monitor reads 15 calories on the final row.

Score will be the total time it takes to complete the workout or the total number of repetitions completed before the 20-minute time cap.

Movement Standards

Handstand Push-Up: The inside of the box for the Handstand Push-Up must measure 40 inches wide and 24 inches deep. The box must be on the same surface as the hands (i.e., if using an elevated platform, the tape must be on the platform, not on the floor beneath.) The arms must be fully extended and in line with the body before the athlete can descend. Each rep begins and ends with the athlete in the lockout position with the heels against the wall, arms fully extended, and shoulders in line with the body. The hands must remain inside the 40-by-24-inch box. If any part of the hand, including any part of the fingers, touches the tape line at any time, the repetition will not count. The athlete will need to start again from the lockout position.

At the bottom, the head must make contact with the ground. If the head and hands are on different surfaces, the surfaces must be level (i.e., if the hands are on plates and there is a pad under the head, the top of the pad must be level with the top of the plates). The feet do not need to remain in contact with the wall for the duration of the movement, but the feet must return to the wall at the beginning and end of each rep. Kipping IS allowed.

The rep is credited when the athlete returns to the lockout position with the heels on the wall; arms, hips and legs fully extended; and shoulders in line with the body. The feet may be no wider than the width of the hands at the lockout.

Dumbbell Shoulder-to-Overhead: The athlete and the Dumbbells must remain in front of the tape line. If the athlete’s feet touch or cross the line at any time, the rep will not count. The Dumbbells must be at the shoulders to begin the Shoulder-to-Overhead. A Press, Push Press, Push Jerk, or Split Jerk are all permitted as long as the finish position is achieved. The rep is credited when the Dumbbells are locked out overhead. The arms, hips, and legs must be extended. The center of both Dumbbells must be over or slightly behind the center of the athlete’s body, with the feet in line. Athletes may NOT have assistance resetting their equipment during the workout.

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 each round. The athlete must stay seated on the Rower until the monitor reads 15 calories. If the athlete reaches the time cap on the Rower, the number of calories completed when the Rower comes to a rest will count (i.e., the rollover calories will count).
