3…2…1 Go Team member 1 will start on the air dyne and work their way to 100 reps. A rep consists of the right hand going fully back and then forward while holding onto the air dyne handles. Once team member 1 completes the 100 AD reps, member 2 will perform their 100 AD reps. Once the team has reached 200 total AD reps they may proceed to the bar for the complex. NOTE: The teams may load their bar prior to starting so that the first person lifting is ready to go once the AD reps are completed. A success complex consists of a deadlift starting from the ground to a full locked out extension with the bar around the hip crease. The clean must not touch the ground and must reach the lifters shoulders, then the shoulder to overhead must be pressed out over head with the arms fully locked out and bar directly over the lifters head. Failed reps will consist of not locking out on the deadlift, clean or shoulder to overhead as well as the bar touching the ground after your initial start of the deadlift. After a successful lift the second team member may repeat the same movements at whatever weight you choose.

***Every 2 minutes the team must stop and someone must perform 15 Weighted Russian Twists (15/10)
3…2…1 Go…… Teams may choose to tackle these reps in any rep scheme that they choose; however, you may not move onto the next movement until the full reps have been completed. Teams will perform 40 Burpees jumping to a plate and then 40 Calorie row, then perform 30 burpees and 30 calorie row, 20/20, 10/10. Every 2 minutes until the team is complete they will have to stop and 1 member will have to perform 15 russian twists with either a 25lb plate for men or a 15lb plate for woman. The same plate is used for jumping on during the burpees. The burpee rep must have the athletes chest touch the ground with the hands being released at the bottom then both feet must jump onto the plate. The athlete doesn’t have to stand up fully only the two feet is required for a successful rep. A no rep will consist of the chest not touching the ground fully or the hands not being released from the ground at the bottom of the burpee. If only one foot touches the plate it will be considered a no rep. If any part of the foot is touching the ground at the same time as the foot is touching the plate it will be considered a no rep. In other words make sure both feet are on the plate at the same time and not touching the ground.
For the Calorie row a rep is counted when the rower shows a calorie earned. The teams may switch at any given rep scheme; however, they may not move on until all reps have been completed for that round. If teams are found to have started the next round prior to the judge indicating the final rep of the row was completed they will receive a 10 second addition to their the finish time.
The score will be the fastest finish time. Each rep not completed within the 10 min time limit will receive a one second penalty.
For the scaled workout the reps are cut down by 20 reps and the teams are not forced to jump onto a plate during the burpee. A full burpee rep will be counted when the athlete has touched the ground in the same manner as mentioned above and stood up locking out their legs and hips to full extension. The row is in the same manner as mentioned above.

The DB snatch will start with one head of the dumbbell touching the ground and extend in one motion over head with the arm fully extended directly overhead. The athlete must switch arms after every rep. There is no requirement after the rep is completed to when the athlete may start switching the DB to the other hand. A no-rep will consist of the DB head not touching the ground after every rep as well, the arm not being locked out overhead and the dumbbell not going from the ground to overhead in one motion.
