- For Time
- 20 Bar Muscle-Ups
- 40/30 calorie Assault Bike
- 20 Bar Muscle-Ups
- Time Cap: 8 minutes
Bar Muscle-Up: The athlete must begin with or pass through, a hang below the bar with arms fully extended and the feet off the ground. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but pull-overs, rolls to support and glide kips are not permitted. The heels may not rise above the height of the bar during the kip.
At the top, the elbows must be fully locked out while the athlete supports their body above the bar with the shoulders over or in front of the bar. Athletes must pass through some portion of a dip to lockout over the bar. Only the hands, and no other part of the arm may touch the pull-up bar to assist the athlete in completing the rep.
Assault Bike: This is required. No exceptions. Ride for 40 calories (30 for women). All calories must be completed before the athlete steps off the bike and continues with the bar muscle-ups. Remember to record the bike display before and once the workout is complete, clearly showing 40/30 calories.
About the wod
From 2016-2017, the event built on its previous success with the introduction of an online qualifier, which allowed the Dubai CrossFit® Championship to reach more athletes than ever before. In 2017, a total of 72 athletes from 19 different countries representing four continents (including 32 CrossFit Games® athletes) competed. From 2012-2015, prior to the online qualifier, athletes were required to travel to Dubai and compete across multiple gyms and venues to earn a spot to the finals a week later. This grassroots approach provided a great platform for the local fitness community to thrive and compete amongst themselves and set the stage for the years to come.
