This workout will be performed for time, in chipper style. On go, athletes will head from the starting mat and perform the handstand walk (or overhead carry, for scaled) from the required line to line. Once complete, they’ll head to their pre-loaded barbell to complete 5 snatches. Each set of handstand walk (or overhead carry) and snatch must be completed within a 2:00 window in order to earn the next two minutes. If the athlete completes it in under 2:00, they’ll begin their second set of carries, and then add weight to the barbell and perform their set of 3 snatches. If performed under the 4:00 mark, they’ll perform their last set of handstand walk, and then 1 snatch at the final weight. Once complete, they’ll sprint to the finish mat where the judge will record their time.

Obstacle Handstand Walk: Entire hand must start behind the line, denoting the beginning of the attempted segment. The athlete must then complete the entirety of each 20ft segment unbroken. Standing on the line or falling before hands cross the next line will not count as a successful repetition.

Snatch: The athlete will start with the pre-loaded barbell on the floor and in one swift motion, will lift the barbell overhead. While power, squat, or split is acceptable, hang, pause, floating or halting is not permitted.  If the barbells vertical trajectory stops at any time, that repetition will not be counted. The repetition is successful when the athlete is holding the bar over the athlete’s center of mass, hips, knees, and arms fully extended.
