Team Event 6 – 2013

Teams of 2 (1 Man, 1 Woman)

For Time:
100 Double-unders, 50 each
50 Handstand push-ups while partner holds handstand
50 Toes-to-bar while partner hangs from the bar
50 Shoulder to overhead with axle (160 / 100 lbs) while partner holds axle in front rack
Then, both partners lunge 90’ with the axles in a front rack position (man first, then woman, both can be moving)

Time cap: 15 minutes

For this event, the athletes will begin on the starting mat. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” the team moves forward and the male performs 50 double-unders. Once he finishes, the female performs 50 double-unders. They will then move under the wall and kick into handstands. One member will perform handstand push-ups while the other holds in a handstand. Reps will only count if both partners are inverted and on the wall. When either member releases their inverted position, they must switch who is the working member, and at least one rep must be completed before switching back to the other working member. At any time, in order to switch the working member, both athletes must come off the wall.

Once a total of 50 handstand push-ups are completed, the team will move to the pull-up bar to perform toes-to-bar. For toes-to-bar, the working athlete will perform repetitions on the low bar while the other hangs, with feet off of the ground, from the high bar. For toes-to-bar repetitions to count the partner must be hanging from the other bar. When either member drops from the bar, they must switch positions and the other athlete becomes the working member. Likewise, if they wish to change the working athlete, they must come off the bar and switch positions.

Once 50 toes-to-bar are accumulated, they move on to the axles and perform shoulder-to-overhead. For shoulder-to-overhead reps to count, the opposite partner must be holding their axle in the front rack position. Both athletes must take the axles to a hang position (or to the floor) before re-racking the axles and allowing the opposite member to perform shoulder-to-overhead repetitions.

After the 50 reps are accumulated, the athletes will move to the starting line with the male in front. They each independently lunge 90 feet with the axle in the front rack position. They may both be moving at the same time, but the female may not pass the male. When each crosses the designated line and comes to a full standing position, the athlete will drop the axle and go to the finish mat. When the female member reaches the finish mat, the workout is complete.

The team’s score is its total time to complete the workout. If they do not finish the entire workout within the 15-minute time cap, the score is 15:00, plus a one-second penalty for each rep not completed and a one-rep penalty for not reaching the finish mat (in the lunge, the half-way mark and the finish line each represent one rep).

Minimum work requirement: One Handstand push-up from each member.
