Competition Workout 1
“Clock-Watcher” Competition Workout Description
Competitors will need a stopwatch timer that counts upwards to 10:00. A jump rope, pull-up station and barbell with extra weights loaded to the weight of your choosing for this workout. This workout has a 10 minute time frame where movements are completed at specific time frames.
Following the list below, competitors will perform as many repetitions as possible of each movement, or as much weight as possible for the thruster movement in the designated time frames:
The Advanced divisions will perform the following:
From 0:00 to 1:00 Max Repetitions: Double-Unders
From 1:00 to 3:00 Max Repetitions: Pull-Ups
From 3:00 to 7:00 Max Weight: 5 Rep Max Thruster*
From 7:00 to 9:00 Max Repetitions: Pull-Ups
From 9:00 to 10:00 Max Repetitions: Double-Unders
The Intermediate divisions will perform the following:
From 0:00 to 1:00 Max Repetitions: Single-Unders
From 1:00 to 3:00 Max Repetitions: Jumping Pull-Ups
From 3:00 to 7:00 Max Weight: 3 Rep Max Thruster*
From 7:00 to 9:00 Max Repetitions: Jumping Pull-Ups
From 9:00 to 10:00 Max Repetitions: Single-Unders
*In the event of a tie score, the weight achieved on the set of Thrusters will be the tie breaker.
The competitor must use clips or collars on their barbell. It will be helpful to have a clock timer or friend that announces different intervals in order to help keep you on track.
Please note: Advanced Division must perform a 5 Rep Max Thruster and the Intermediate Division completes a 3 Rep Max Thruster.
The Thruster repetitions must be unbroken. Any repetitions of any movement that are completed outside of the designated time frames will not be counted. Weight on the Thrusters will be scored in ‘lbs’, and must be in whole numbers, no fractions.
Video Submission Standards
For competitors that are submitting a video of their effort the competitor must begin the video by stating their name and the name of the competition workout(s) they are completing. Next, the competitor must show all weights and measurements, clearly demonstrating and focusing on the numeric value so the specific weight and measurement can be clearly viewed. The athlete and any implements, which in this video will require a jump rope, pull-up station and barbell with clips, loaded to the weight of your choosing for “Clock-Watcher.”
A timer that is counting up to 10:00 must be visible at all times throughout. It is recommended to utilize an application (such as WeTime) that has a built-in timer on the video interface. The video recording may not be edited and must be one continuous recording. It is recommended that the video recording device be mounted as opposed to having an individual moving it around and possibly causing and required implement, or the competitor to come out of the frame during the video which may render the video invalid for scoring purposes.
If any of these standards are not met the video is subject to being invalidated. An invalidated video may result in a score not qualifying for a prize, so it is crucial that these standards are met. If you have any additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to attempting this workout to ensure all required standards are met.
