“Team Series 18.5”
2018 CrossFit Games Team Series WOD #5
- For Time (with a Partner)
- 10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps of:
- Bar Muscle-Ups
- Squat Snatches (95/65 lb)
- Time Cap: 20 minutes
This workout begins with one athlete standing tall under the pull-up bar. The first athlete will complete 10 bar muscle-ups followed by 10 squat snatches, then tag the hand of the second athlete who will also complete 10 bar muscle-ups followed by 10 squat snatches. Once the second athlete has completed 10 squat snatches, the team must tag hands again before Athlete 1 completes 9 bar muscle-ups followed by 9 squat snatches, tagging Athlete 2 to complete 9 bar muscle-ups followed by 9 squat snatches. The team will continue in this fashion: Athlete 1 completing a round followed by Athlete 2 completing the same round before the team can progress to the next, lower-rep round.
Every second counts in this workout. The team’s score will be the time it takes to complete all 220 repetitions. Time will be recorded in full seconds. Do not round up. If the team finishes in 10:32.7, its score is 10:32. There is a 20-minute time cap. If the team does not finish all 220 reps before the cap, its score will be the number of reps completed.
10-9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1 reps for time of:
Men: 65 lb.
Women: 45 lb.
If you struggle with pull-ups, use assistance. For the squat snatch, pick a load at which you can complete the first round unbroken. If needed, reduce the overall volume by skipping the first few rounds (start with 8 or 7 and work your way down).
