Score = time. If time capped, +1sec per rep remaining.

OVERVIEW

7min Time Cap

Double Unders: 2 revolutions of the rope under the feet

Toes to Bar (T2B): feet must pass behind the bar, simultaneous bar contact between the hands

MOVEMENT STANDARDS

Double Unders: This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes completely under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count.

Toes to Bar: In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang to having toes touch the pull-up bar. At the start of each rep, the arms must be fully extended with the feet off the ground, and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and the rest of the body. Overhand, underhand or split-grip are all permitted.

Both feet must meet the bar at the same time, inside the hands.

Devil’s Press: The Devil Press is a movement featuring two dumbbells of the same weight, and is essentially a combination of a dumbbell burpee, and a double dumbbell snatch.

Athletes will start each repetition with the dumbbells on the ground. Then, with the athlete’s hands on the dumbbell, they’ll perform a burpee, with chest making contact with the floor. From here, the athlete will jump to their feet, never taking their hands from the dumbbells. Next, the athlete shall snatch or swing both dumbbells from the floor simultaneously, and finish with both locked out overhead, with hips, knees, shoulders, and arms at full extension. This shall indicate a completed repetition.

MOVEMENT STANDARDS

Deficit Handstand Push-Up: Palms of the hands must be inside the 3 x 2’ box. Fingers may cross over the lines. Plates can anywhere inside the 3 x 2’ box.

Each repetition begins with kicking upside down onto the wall, with the athlete’s hands clearly inside of the box, arms and shoulders locked out, body vertically aligned, and feet in contact with the wall.

Once this position is established, the athlete may lower their body down to bring their head in contact with the ground. From here, the athlete may use any style of handstand push-up, including kipping or strict, to press and finish with their body vertically aligned, arms and shoulders locked out, and feet in contact with the wall.

 Each rep must have the athlete’s head contact the floor, and finish in this extended position.

If at any point in time an athlete kicks off the wall, they must first establish the locked-out finish position, with body vertically aligned before lowering down to begin repetitions. If over the course of a repetition, the athlete’s hands leave the marked box, that rep shall not count. However, if the athlete is resting with their head on the floor, they may adjust their hands (which may have them come out of the box,) but must return them to the box before attempting to complete another repetition.
