3000m Row for Time
*Two 1.5lb Kettlebells must remain off of the ground while meters are being accumulated.
Teams will establish a rowing order and must stay in that order for the entire workout. Athletes can switch however many times they choose. Every team member must row. Rowing cannot begin until both kettlebells are off of the ground. If at any point a kettlebell is dropped, the rower must release the handle until both kettlebells are up again. Both kettlebells can be held by one athlete at the same time, or the work can be divided by the two non-rowing athletes.
Heavy Hitters will begin as soon as the 16 min cap for Team Tailpipe has expired. The faster you finish Event 2, the more time you will have to rest! Rowers must be flipped to the upright position prior to beginning Heavy Hitters. Score = Time Completed.
10 minutes to Establish 1RM Curtis P
Curtis P = 1 Power Clean + 1 Front Rack Lunge per leg + Shoulder to Overhead
Teams will begin with one empty barbell. At the call of “Go!” they will begin loading their barbell to the desired opening weight. The team can lift in any order and add or remove weight from the barbell as many times as necessary during the 10 minutes. There is no limit on the number of possible attempts. Hands must stay on the bar for the entire complex in order for the rep to count. Each athlete’s best lift will be multiplied according to the table below and added together for one total score.
Power Clean – Barbell must be received in the front rack position above parallel. A squat cleans will result in a no-rep. A split clean is allowed.
Front Rack Lunges – This must be a forward lunge. The back knee must touch the ground at the bottom, and the athlete must stand to full extension at the top with both feet together before moving into the next step. A lunge must be completed on each leg in order for the rep to count.
Shoulder to Overhead – Any type of shoulder to overhead will be allowed – press, push press, push jerk, split jerk. The rep must finish with ankles, knees and hips fully extended at the top. The barbell must be fully locked out overhead in line with the shoulders and head through at the top, and the athlete must show full control of the barbell before dropping it.
