Rx Movement Standards

WOD 1 

Establish a Max Clean, Hang Clean and Jerk  in 10 Minutes. 

* The 1st clean must be from the floor. It may be power, split or squat 

* You must remain holding the barbell when transitioning into the hang clean and jerk. You can't drop the barbell in between movements.  

* The hang clean must start somewhere between the top of the knee and your hips. It may be a power, split or squat clean. 

* The jerk may be a "shoulder-to-overhead" movement meaning it can be a strict press, push press, push jerk or split jerk.

There will be an empty male and female bar in the lane with weights at the front of the lane. If the female prefers the male bar or vice versa, that is up to them. Only one partner may be working at a time. Both partners may help load weights throughout the 10 minutes. YOUR JUDGE MAY NOT HELP YOU. You may switch back and forth between male and female partners throughout the 10 minutes and may leave the barbell not in use loaded. However, the barbell not is use MUST be pushed to the FRONT of the lane, clearly out of the way of the lifting athlete. In addition to this, all unused weights MUST remain in the weight staging area  at the front of the lane while the athlete is lifting. You must have collars on the bar when attempting a lift. If any of these rules are not followed, your judge or head judge has the right to no-rep a good lift. We want everyone as safe as possible while performing max lifts.

The barbell must start on the ground • Power cleans, squat cleans, and split cleans are permitted.  • If the athlete’s knee touches the floor during the attempt, the rep will not count.  The athlete may begin the hang clean, when the athlete’s hips and knees reach full extension and the bar is supported in the front-rack position.



The hang clean begins when the bar is lowered from the rack position. • The bar may not pass below the knee. • Hang power cleans, hang squat cleans, and hang split cleans are permitted. • If the knee touches the floor during the attempt, the rep will not count. • The jerk may begin when the athlete’s hips and knees reach full extension and the bar is supported in the front-rack position.


Following the hang clean, the barbell must be in contact with the shoulders to begin the jerk. • A press, push press, push jerk, or split jerk are all permitted as long as the required finish position is achieved. • The rep is credited when: - The barbell is locked out overhead, and arms, hips, and legs are extended. - The bar is over or slightly behind the center of the athlete’s body, with feet in line. • If the athlete fails the jerk and brings the barbell back to the front rack, the athlete may NOT reattempt the jerk for safety purposes.

30 Pull-Ups

60 Calorie Row 

Then complete 3 Rounds: 

14 Snatches (135/95#) (power, split or squat) 

18 Overhead Squats (135/95#)

60 Double Unders

Cash Out: 

60 Calorie Row

15 Bar Muscle Ups


The monitor on the rower must be set to zero calories at the beginning of each row. Your partner may be waiting at the barbell to begin the  snatch once the 1st row is complete. 


The athlete must start each rep with arms fully extended and feet off the ground. • Any style of pull-up or grip is permitted as long as the requirements are met. • The rep is credited when the athlete’s chin breaks the horizontal plane of the bar. • Wrapping tape around the pull-up bar or wearing hand protection (gymnastics-style grips, gloves, etc.) is permitted. We will allow taping the bar AND wearing hand protection at the same time. If choosing to tape the bar, you must provide your own tape. If you rip and bleed on the bar, you must remove the tape before the next heat starts. 

You will have designated lanes that are near the pull-up rig. It will be 1st come, 1st serve to use any pull-up bar near your lane. For shorter athletes, your partner may lift you to the bar or you may use a j-hook to get yourself up there. We will not allow boxes for safety purposes. We will be asking for athlete height prior to the competition. We will do our best to place teams in lanes where the pull up bars will work for their height. 

Upon completion of the 30th rep, the partner may already be sitting on the rower waiting to be begin.

The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one motion. Power, squat and split snatches are all permitted, but in each instance the athlete’s feet must be brought back in line. This is not a ground-to-overhead any way. A clean and jerk is a no rep. Touch and go is permitted but deliberately bouncing the barbell is not. The bar can be dropped from overhead. The rep is credited when the barbell is at full lockout overhead, with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over or slightly behind the middle of the body with the feet in line.

The athlete who is completing the 14th rep may choose to hang onto the barbell and go directly into the overhead squats. NOTE: If the athlete squat snatched the 14th rep, this does not count as the 1st overhead squat. It only counts as the 14th snatch. However, if they squat snatch any reps following the 14th snatch, those will count as overhead squats as long as all overhead squat standards are met.

The hip crease must be below the top of the knee at the bottom. A full squat snatch is permitted, but not required, to start the movement if standard depth is achieved. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the HIPS, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body. NOTE: If the 14th Snatch is a squat snatch, this DOES NOT COUNT as the 1st overhead squat. However, the athlete may keep the barbell overhead after the 14th snatch and transition into their 1st overhead squat.

This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. Only successful jumps are counted, not attempts. The athlete must bring their own jump ropes. If transitioning between athletes during double unders, the waiting athlete may have their jump rope in hand. Upon completion of the 60th rep, the other athlete may be waiting at the barbell to begin the next round. Upon completion of the 3rd round, the waiting athlete may already be sitting on the rower waiting to begin. 


The athlete must begin with or pass through a hang below the bar, with arms fully extended and feet off the ground. • Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but pull-overs, rolls to support, and glide kips are not permitted. • No portion of the foot may rise above the lowest part of the bar during the kip.• The athlete must pass through some portion of a dip before locking out over the bar. The rep is credited when: - the athlete’s arms are fully locked out in the support position above the bar; and - the athlete’s shoulders are over or slightly in front of the bar. • Only the hands, and no other part of the arm, may touch the bar during the rep. • Removing the hands in the support position is not allowed. • At lockout, only the arms may support the athlete’s weight.

The burpee box jump-over starts with the athlete facing the box while touching their chest and thighs to the ground and finishes with the athlete jumping over the box. • Athletes may step or jump in and out of the push-up position. • Each rep is counted when the athlete lands on the ground on the opposite side of the box. From there, they may begin their next rep. • A two-foot takeoff is always required, and only the athlete’s feet may touch the box. • After landing on the box, the athlete may jump or step off to the other side. • Alternatively, the athlete may jump completely over the box. • If jumping over the box, the feet must pass over the box, not around it, and the athlete must use a two-foot landing. • There is no requirement to stand tall while on top of the box. • 

After the 8th rep is completed, the partner may flip the box to the appropriate height.

Begin with arms locked out, heels in contact with the wall. The rep is credited upon return to the starting position.  At the bottom, the head must make contact with the ground.  The feet do not need to remain in contact with the wall for the duration of the movement, but heels must touch the wall  before descending into their next rep • Kipping and strict are both allowed.

We will be using a handstand push-up mat (no plates or abmats). Upon completion of the 8th rep, the waiting athlete may be waiting at the barbell. However, please note the judge will need to travel back to the lane to count the reps, so be sure your judge is watching and counting before starting your 1st deadlift rep.
