1- Bringing heels up (going too far forward)

2 – Lunging forward at the catch (weak shoulders)

3 – improper sequence

9 Deadlifts (315/205)

50-ft. Handstand Walk

 

Time cap: 9 min.

NOTES

Prior to starting this workout, the athlete will need to mark a foot line on the wall for the handstand push-ups (details in Movement Standards section). He or she also will need to measure and mark lengths on the floor for the handstand walk. This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may perform 21 deadlifts, then move to the wall for the 21 handstand push-ups. He or she will then complete 15 deadlifts and 15 handstand push-ups, then 9 deadlifts and 9 handstand push-ups.

The athlete then can move on to the heavier deadlifts to complete 21 deadlifts, a 50-ft. handstand walk, 15 deadlifts, another 50-ft. handstand walk, and finally, 9 deadlifts and a third 50-ft. handstand walk.

The athlete’s score will be the time it takes to complete the workout or the total number of repetitions completed within the 9-minute time cap. In the handstand walk, each 5-foot section will count as 1 rep.

TIEBREAK

This workout includes a tiebreak. If all 165 reps are completed prior to the 9-minute time cap, your score will be your total time, and there will be no tiebreaker. However, if you are not able to complete the entire workout in the allotted time, a tiebreaker will be factored into your final score. During the workout, be sure to note your time at the end of each set of deadlifts. When you submit your score, there will be a space for your final rep count and an additional field for you to enter the elapsed time at which you completed your last full set of deadlifts. In the case where two athletes have the same score (total number of reps), the athlete with the lower tiebreak time will be ranked higher.

Men deadlift 135 lb. and perform hand-release push-ups,
