The three qualifying workouts are based on the 3-minute on and 1-minute off template. The first part for time is the tie-breaker, the second part for points is the final score. For each workout, the athlete can choose his/her favorite movement out of 2 available versions (Rx and scaled) and declare it to the judge (mixing up the two movements is not allowed).

The palm of the hand must be placed within the clearly marked area (fingers may extend outside of the mat). At the bottom of each rep, the athlete’s head must touch the ground. At the top of each rep, the athlete must return to a fully locked out position, with the heels in contact with the wall and the feet within the width of the marked area. Kipping is allowed.
Hand-Release Push-Ups: A straight body position must be maintained throughout the movement. No snaking, sagging or pushing up from the knees is allowed. The elbows must be locked at the top with the feet no wider than shoulder width. At the bottom, the chest must touch the floor, and the hands must be lifted completely off the ground.
