EXPLANATION OF EVENT
Both athletes will work separately and at the same time. 1 Athlete will start on the Concept 2 Ski Erg and the other athlete will begin on the Dumbbells.
Once the athlete who is working on the dumbbells is completed with their round, the athletes will switch. The athletes will keep switching in this manner until the 8 minutes is complete. Athletes MAY NOT switch until the dumbbell round is complete by the athlete working on that portion.
Part I Score will be the number of calories on the Ski Erg and Part II will be the number of rounds plus reps for the dumbbells.
There will only be 1 judge and they will be judging the athlete working on the dumbbell portion of the event.
Use your hands and pull the handles over and over again. Please do not break the machine with your mighty strength. Both feet on the stand.
The dumbbells will begin on the ground for the 1st rep. The athlete will pick them up in each hand and stand straight up, hips fully extended, knees locked out, and shoulders above or behind the hips. The dumbbells will be held below the athletes hips, 1 at each side.
The athlete, still holding the dumbbells will then drop to the ground and perform a burpee with their thighs, and chest touching the ground and their hands in contact with the dumbbell handles.
They will then stand up with the dumbbells in each hand and achieve the top position, standing straight up, hips fully extended, knees locked out, and shoulders above or behind the hips. The dumbbells will be held below the athletes hips, 1 at each side.
First position: Athlete is holding dumbbells in each hand standing straight up with the dumbbells resting/touching on the shoulders. Athletes MAY NOT start with a “squat clean” from the ground. They must pick up dumbbells from the ground and achieve this top position first in any manner they wish, unassisted. Feet will be shoulder width apart, no wider.
Bottom position: The athlete will achieve a full squat, with hip crease below knees.
Top position: The athlete will stand straight up, dumbbells pressed overhead with full hip, knee, and arm extension. The dumbbells move over middle of foot.
