Etc., adding 3 reps to the handstand push-up each round, and 3 reps to the clean every 3 rounds.

Men clean 185 lb.
Women clean 125 lb.

Notes
Prior to starting this workout each athlete will need to stand against the wall and measure and mark their foot line for the handstand push-ups (details to the left). At the call of “3-2-1 … go,” the athlete will kick up into a handstand and perform handstand push-ups. Once 3 handstand push-up reps are complete they will move to the barbell for 3 cleans, then back to the wall for 6 handstand push-ups, then 3 cleans, etc. Each round, the number of repetitions of the handstand push-ups will increase by 3. After every 3 rounds, the number of clean reps will increase by 3. Athletes will continue following this pattern for as many reps as possible within the 8 minutes.

Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 8-minute time cap.

Tiebreak
In this workout, we are using a special tiebreak method. Time should be marked after every third set of cleans (the last set before increasing the clean reps), i.e., after the third set of 3 cleans, after the third set of 6 cleans, after the third set of 9 cleans, etc. Whichever occurred last will be your tiebreak score.

For example, a male athlete finishes 5 handstand push-ups in the round of 24 reps for a total of 125 reps. During his workout he finished his third set of 3 cleans at 1:31 and his third set of 6 cleans at 5:25. In this case, he will submit 125 reps for his score and also enter 5:25 as his time in the tiebreak field. This athlete would be ranked above someone who got 125 reps and a tiebreak time of 6:00, but below someone with 125 reps and a tiebreak time of 5:15.

Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recommended you set your clock to count up.

For Scaled options there is no tiebreak.

Equipment
• Wall with a line at the appropriate height for the handstand push-up
• Barbell
• Collars
• Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division

For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the event. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.

*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 84 / 56 kg for Rx’d, 43 / 29 kg push press and 52 / 34 kg clean for Masters 55+ and Scaled, 52 / 34 kg clean for Teens 16-17, 43 / 29 kg clean for Teens 14-15, 29 / 20 kg push press and 34 / 24 kg clean for Teens Scaled and Masters 55+ Scaled.

Video Submission Standards
Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. Also film the process of measuring the line for the handstand push-ups. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

Movement Standards

Workout 15.4 score submissions are still open.

Prior to starting you will need to establish the foot line for your handstand push-up. Stand facing the wall with your feet at shoulder width and your toes touching the wall. While standing tall, reach your hands over your head with your elbows straight, shoulders extended and your thumbs touching.

From here, mark the height of your wrists, then measure down 3 inches and create a line on the wall. Mark your line with a permanent marker, chalk or tape. Judges may restore the line between rounds as needed.

Each handstand push-up begins and ends with the heels in contact with the wall and above the pre-marked line. The athlete may place their hands however they choose, as long as their heels are above the line.

At the bottom the head makes contact with the ground. The feet do not need to remain in contact with the wall for the entire movement, but must touch above the line at the beginning and end of each rep. Kipping is allowed.

For Scaled, each rep of the push press begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead and over the middle of the body.

The athlete may dip and drive with the legs while the weight is on the shoulders. However, once the barbell leaves the shoulder the hips and knees must remain straight until the weight is locked out overhead. No jerks.

At the top, the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line. Using a rack is not permitted.

For the clean, the barbell begins on the ground. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing.

A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the shoulders, with the hips and knees fully extended with the feet in line and the elbows in front of the bar.
