Stop at 20 minutes. Notes
This workout begins with the athlete standing under the pull-up bar. At the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will have 4 minutes to perform 25 toes-to-bars, followed by 50 double-unders, and then 15 squat cleans. If all 90 repetitions are not completed by 4 minutes the athlete’s workout is over, and they will stop and record their score.
If all 90 repetitions are completed within the 4-minute window the athlete will earn an additional 4 minutes to perform another 25 toes-to-bars, 50 double-unders, and 13 squat cleans, this time at a heavier weight. If all 178 repetitions (90 from round 1, plus 88 from round 2) are completed by the 8-minute mark, the athlete will begin another round and their time cap will be extended by an additional 4 minutes. At each round, the weight of the clean will increase while the number of reps of the clean will decrease. Once a round is completed, the athlete may immediately begin their next round. They do not need to wait for the 4-minute round to end before moving on to the next round. This pattern of earning additional time will continue for up to 20 minutes, as long as a full round is completed before the next cutoff.
This workout is over when the athlete fails to complete all the repetitions within the cut-off time for that round. The final round ends at the 20-minute mark. The athlete’s score is the number of repetitions completed up to their cut-off time.
In this workout, another person may assist the athlete in changing the plates on the barbell during the workout, or multiple barbells may be used.
