At start, the video must document the weight on the bar prior to a lift. The weight is then placed in the overhead position and squatted 3 consecutive times. There is no time limit. As many attempts as needed may be taken.

The hip crease must be below the top of the knee at the bottom of the lift. 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 and under control for the rep to count.

Wodgodz Qualifier WOD 3

Deadlift/Squat Clean/Muscle up Time Ladder

At start, the video must document the weight on the bar.  The athlete has 2 min to complete 1 round of 7 deadlifts/5 squat cleans/3 muscle-ups. Moving from Deadlift to Squat Clean to Muscle-up. If all work is completed within the 2 min, another 2 min window is granted, but no work can be done until the start of the new window.  If, again, all the work is done in this 2 minute window, another 2 min window is granted. But, at the start of each odd numbered round (3,5,7,9,etc.), the rep scheme will go up by 1 on each movement (rounds 3&4: 8/6/4; rounds 5&6: 9,7,5; rounds 7&8: 10,8,6… etc).  There should be a running clock and think of this as one round every 2 min (Every 2 min on the 2 min) until failure to complete the rep scheme for a given round.

 

Example:

2 min to complete

Round 1- 7 DL/5 Squat Cleans/3 Muscle-ups

2 min to complete

Round 2- 7 DL/5 Squat Cleans/3 Muscle-ups

If work complete then increase each move by 1 rep

2 min to complete

Round 3- 8 Dead Lifts/6 Squat Cleans/4 Muscle-ups

2 min to complete

Round 4- 8 Dead Lifts/6 Squat Cleans/4 Muscle-ups

If work complete then increase each move by 1 rep

2 min to complete
