This is a team workout and it’s a repeat of 16.3 (“Go Heavy or Go Home”) from the SAB 2016 Qualifiers.
Part A: the athletes need to perform 2 chest-to-bar pull-ups and 2 box jump overs to complete the first round with each round increasing by 2 additional reps (round 2 is 4 CTB and 4 BJO; round 3 is 6 CTB and 6 BJO etc.) The workout is running for 10 minutes and the score for Part A is the total repetitions completed. Athletes are allowed to change as often as they want to but each time they must clearly tag their partner (touching partner’s hand). Male/Female team must flip the box (from 24″ to 20″) when changing working partner.
Part B: after part A both athletes move to part B which has a 8 minutes time cap. Both athletes start with their own empty barbell and load their chosen weight, without help. Athlete A starts to perform his first attempt of a 3 rep max shoulder-to-overhead from the floor. As long as athlete A is working athlete B is not allowed to lift. A soon as athlete A drops the bar, they must tag hands and athlete B is allowed to start his attempt. Loading the barbell while the other athlete is working is permitted. Athletes may increase but not decrease the weights, if they fail their first attempt.
Scoring: The score for Part A is the total amount of repetitions completed by the team. For Part B, the score needs to be entered separately for each athlete. e.g. if one athlete successfully lifts 100 kg and the other one 70kg, the scores will be entered separately as 100 kg and 70 kg (and NOT 300 kg and 210 kg).
