For this event the athlete will work for 2 minutes, then rest for 1 minute, for three total rounds, before finishing with a final 3 minute round. The first three movements of each interval are considered a buy-in, with the ultimate goal being to complete the entirety of the sled push and drag distance.

In the first 2 minute work window, the athlete will perform 9 Ring Muscle-Ups, 9 Hang Squat Cleans, 9 Bar Over Burpees, and then, with the remaining time, complete as much distance he or she can advance on the Sled to complete a total of 50 yards of Sled Push followed by 50 yards of Sled Drag. In the second 2 minute work window, the athlete will perform 7 Ring Muscle-Ups, 7 Hang Squat Cleans, 7 Bar Over Burpees and then, starting where they left off, as much distance as he or she can advance on the Sled Push and Drag.

In the third 2 minute work window, the athlete will perform 5 Ring Muscle-Ups, 5 Hang Squat Cleans, 5 Bar Over Burpees, and then, starting where the athlete left off, as much distance he or she can advance on the Sled. In the fourth and final 3 minute work window, the athlete will perform 3 Ring Muscle-Ups, 3 Hang Squat Cleans, 3 Bar Over Burpees and then, starting where the athlete left off, as much distance he or she can advance on the Sled.

If at any point following the interval buy-in, the athlete completes the full Sled Push and drag for a total of 100 yards, the athlete will sprint the final 50 yards to the finish line to complete the workout. In case of a No Rep on the Bar Over Burpees, the repetition must be performed fully again.

Score is the total time it takes to complete the event. If the athlete does not finish the buy-in of any round in the allotted time, the athlete will be capped, and the score will be the total number of repetitions completed at the end of the given round – the Sled will not be counted.

If the athlete finishes the 100 Sled Yards just before the end of an interval, and only has the run remaining, they do not have to complete the next buy-in, and instead can sprint across the finish line.
