2018 CrossFit Games Team Series WOD #2
- For Time (with a Partner)
- 20 Synchronized Squat Cleans (135/95 lb)

- 20 Synchronized Squat Cleans (225/155 lb)
- Time Cap: 7 minutes
This workout begins with the athletes standing tall and the barbells resting on the floor. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go!” the athletes will begin their synchronized cleans, making sure to reach the bottom of the squat at the same time for each repetition to count. If the first set of 20 repetitions is completed, the team’s judge must record the time elapsed on the clock.
Athletes will then add weight to their barbells (assistance is permitted) for the second round. The second round of cleans will be performed in the same fashion as the first. If the second set of 20 repetitions is completed, the team’s judge must again record the time elapsed on the clock.
Athletes will again adjust their barbells to the appropriate loading and proceed to the third round of cleans. The workout is over if all 60 reps are completed before the time cap. The team’s score will be the total time it takes to complete all 60 reps. If the team does not complete all 60 reps when the time cap hits, the score will be recorded as the number of reps completed before the time cap.
Complete as many reps as possible in 7 minutes following this pattern:
20 squat cleans, 95 / 65 lb.
20 squat cleans, 135 / 95 lb.
20 squat cleans, 155 / 105 lb.
Newer athletes may want to further reduce the loading. The first load should be easy. The second load should be harder, but you should be able to complete the 20 reps in 2-3 minutes. The final load should be heavy for you but doable.
