With the other movements, one of the three remaining athletes can move at a time. You must complete all 100 reps of one movement, before moving to the next. You will have two barbells, and the plates needed to make the weights necessary for the movements. After the 4k is completed, two athletes can move at once to finish the remaining 100 rep movements. If the 100 rep movements are done, but the 4k row is not finished, time will continue to run until the 4k is completed.

You will have 10 minutes to establish your three rep max. All three lifts must occur within 40 seconds. If you miss a lift, you can make another attempt, as long as three successful lifts occur within 40 seconds. You will load your own bar. As long as the bar passes through the rack position, and you lock the weight out overhead with your feet below you, the lift will count. You may drop the bar from overhead. All 3 lifts must be entirely done before the 40 seconds has expired. Athletes will be responsible for loading their own bars. All athletes will be able to make 310 pounds in 5 pound increments. If you feel you will go heavier than 310, please let us know.
