NOTES

This workout begins with the athlete standing under the pull-up bar. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will have 8 minutes to perform 25 toes-to-bars, followed by 50 double-unders and 15 squat cleans, then perform 25 toes-to-bars, 50 double-unders and 13 squat cleans, this time at a heavier weight. If the athlete does not complete all 178 repetitions within 8 minutes, their workout is over. The athlete will stop and record their score.

If all 178 repetitions are completed within the 8-minute window, the athlete will earn an additional 4 minutes to perform another 25 toes-to-bars, 50 double-unders and 11 squat cleans, again at a heavier weight. If all 264 repetitions (90 from round 1, plus 88 from round 2, plus 86 from round 3) are completed by the 12-minute mark, the athlete will begin another round and the time cap will be extended by an additional 4 minutes. Each round, the weight of the clean will increase while the reps of the clean decrease. Once a round is completed, the athlete may immediately begin the next round. The athlete does not need to wait for the 4-minute round to end before moving on to the next round. This pattern of earning additional time will continue for up to 20 minutes, as long as a full round is completed before the next cutoff.

This workout is over when the athlete fails to complete all the repetitions within the cutoff time for that round. The final round ends at the 20-minute mark. The athlete’s score is the number of repetitions completed up to their cutoff time.

In this workout, another person may assist the athlete in changing the plates on the barbell during the workout, or multiple barbells may be used. Collars must be placed on the outside of all the plates on any bar used during the workout.
