Prior to starting this workout, each athlete will need to create a station to perform handstand push-ups. This is a 20-minute workout, with the first athlete working during the first 10 minutes, and the second athlete working during the second 10 minutes. This workout begins with the first athlete standing tall. At the call of “3, 2, 1… go!” the athlete will kick up to the wall and complete as many handstand push-ups as possible before the clock reaches 2:00. They will then rest until the clock reaches 4:00. From 4:00-6:00, they will complete as many double-unders as possible. They will rest until the clock reaches 8:00, at which point they will have until 10:00 to find a 1-rep-max back squat. Plates smaller than 1⁄2 lb. may not be used. There is no limit to the number of attempts within the 2-minute time window.
The second athlete will perform the same exercises as the first athlete but in the opposite order: back squat from 10:00-12:00, double-under from 14:00-16:00 and handstand push-up from 18:00-20:00.
The team’s score is the sum of all the reps completed during the handstand push-ups and double-unders, and the weight in lb. of the heaviest squat from each athlete. For example, if Athlete 1 completes 40 handstand push-ups, 160 double-unders and a max squat of 350 lb., and Athlete 2 completes 35 handstand push-ups, 175 double-unders and a 250-lb. squat, the team’s score will be 1,010.
About the wod
The 2017 CrossFit Team Series was a new format compared to prior years, designed for teams of two. Two women, two men or a man and a woman are allowed. 2017 was all about the twos: two-person teams took on two sets of workouts over two weeks. The event took place from Sept. 20 through Oct. 2. This seventh team series event was announced on September 27, 2017.
