Every two minutes, on the minute athlete will attempt to complete the designated work within a two minute running clock. If the athlete completes all the required work within the 2:00 window, they rest the remainder of the 2:00. At minute 2:00, they have until minute 4:00 to complete another round. If they complete the round, they rest until minute 6:00. They’ll begin a new round at minute 6:00 and have until minute 8:00 to complete another complete round. This continues, with the athlete working to complete a full round under each two minute clock. If the athlete is unable to complete the entirety of the work in any allotted two minute round, their workout is over.
For the 2018 Wodapalooza online challenge, athletes were capped at 12 rounds with the tie-breaker being the time on the clock when they finished the 12th round (ie. 23:33.)
