NOTES

This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. At the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will perform 9 thrusters, then 35 double-unders. They will repeat this couplet for a total of 10 rounds. During the workout, only the athlete may handle their equipment, and the rope must be set on the ground while the athlete is performing thrusters.

EQUIPMENT

• Barbell
• Collars
• Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division
• Jump rope

Every second counts in this workout. The athlete’s score will be the time it takes to complete all 440 repetitions. Time will be recorded in full seconds. Do not round up. If an athlete finishes in 15:40.8, their score is 15:40. There is a 40-minute time cap. If the athlete does not finish all 440 reps within the time cap, their score will be the number of reps completed. There is no tiebreaker for this workout.
