Squat Clean: The barbell begins on the ground. Touch and go is permitted. No bouncing or dropping and catching the barbell on the rebound. Once dropped, the barbell must settle on the ground before beginning the next repetition. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below the knees. A power clean or split clean followed by a front squat will be permitted. The rep is complete when the athlete’s hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar is resting on the shoulders in the front rack position with the elbows in front of the bar.
Burpees Over the Bar: The movement starts with the athlete on one side of the bar. The athlete then lies on the floor; chest and thighs must touch the floor. The athlete stands up above the bar for the rep to count. Both feet must take off from the floor in the same time. The rep counts when the athlete land on the other side of the bar. Any other bodypart is allowed to touch the bar.
Row: The monitor on the rower must be set to zero at the beginning of each row. The athlete can judge the monitor between each round. The athlete must stay seated on the rower until the monitor reads 20-16 calories.
