Order of Operations

At the cue of “3, 2, 1 Go!!!,”

Athlete 1 will pedal through their categories allotted calories.  Upon completion of the calories, athlete 1 will begin to chip away at the AMRAP, solo.  As soon as athlete 1 has completed the calories, athlete 2 will perform the same number of calories for their division.  When athlete 2 has completed their calories they may help athlete 1 with the AMRAP.  ((The AMRAP will be one athlete working at a time)) Now that athlete 2 has completed the allotted calories, athlete 3 may now step in and complete their calories.  When athlete 3 has finished they may assist the other team members with the AMRAP.  Even though there are three athletes only one may work at a time.  So, go fast!

If two full rounds are completed and there is still time left on the clock, team members will work to perform as many calories as possible.  For this portion of the bike it is up to the team to decide how to split up the work load. 

Tip – you may have an athlete waiting on the bike while the other team members are finishing the AMRAP.  Obviously a judge will be there to make sure no one starts pedaling early.

Movement Standards

Bike – Judges will reset the bikes and cue athletes to start and when they are finished. Athletes may stand or sit while pedaling.

Toes to Bar – Athletes will start each rep from the full hang with both feet passing behind the plane made by the bar. Both feet must touch the bar at the same time and in between the hands. You may grip overhand, mixed, or underhand.

Hanging knee raises – The same standards apply. Legs must pass through full extension before curling the hips and knees up. The top of the knee must be raised above the crease of the hip.

Sandbag Cleans – Athletes will start each repetition with the sandbag on the floor. Different lifting styles may be used but each athlete must pass through knee and hip extension before throwing the sandbag over the shoulder. Judges will be looking for the sandbag to go over the shoulder and not beside the shoulder.

Sandbag Squats – Athletes will pick up the sandbag and perform squats. The sandbag may be held anywhere above the hip. You may bear hug or place on the shoulder or back.  As well, team members can help in placement of the bag prior to squatting.  Hip crease below the top of the knee applies.


Bike buy in – 50 points

As soon as the 3rd athlete completes the calories of their division their time will be noted for later placement.

AMRAP – 50 points

Total reps accumulated of the possible 2 rounds* and additional calories on the bike will determine placing.

*If 2 full rounds are completed the time will be noted in case of possible tie breaker.

* This workout will involve the StrongFit sandbags in a ground to over the shoulder movement. Weight is 120/80 Rx and 80/50 scaled (not the 180 monster from last year).
