- Etc., adding 3 reps to each exercise every round.
Prior to starting this workout, each athlete will need to create a long straight line on the floor and place a box on the center of that line. This workout begins with the athletes standing tall. At the call of “3, 2, 1… go!” the athletes will drop down and begin the burpee box jump-overs. Partners must be synchronized, with their chests touching the floor at the same time. Once 3 reps are complete, each athlete will move to their barbell and perform synchronized deadlifts, with both athletes standing tall at the top of the lift at the same time. After 3 deadlifts, the team will move back to the box for the next round, this time completing 6 reps of each exercise.
During each round, the number of repetitions for each exercise will increase by 3 reps: 3 the first round, 6 the second round, 9 the third, 12 the fourth, etc. Teams will follow this pattern, completing as many repetitions as possible within the 10-minute time cap. The team’s score is the total number of repetitions completed.

This sixth team series event was announced on September 27, 2017.
