Max Synchronized Overhead Squats (M/F Pair)

(Deadlift/Power Clean/Power Snatch/Overhead Squat)

Male: 205/115/75/65
Female: 115/75/55/35




On 3,2,1, GO the first Male athlete (Male 1) will begin the deadlifts. Once he is done, he will tag Male 2 and he will complete his 20 deadlifts. All 4 athletes will then complete 5 Bar Facing Burpees. For the burpees, the Males will share their barbell and the Females will share their naked barbell. The team then changes the weights for the Power Cleans and continues on through the workout.

Once the Males are done with their Power Snatches and the whole team completes their burpees, the athletes will work together to add the weights to the Female barbell.

Males will use a Male (20kg) barbell and the Females will use a Female (15kg) barbell at all times. Collars must be used at all times when the barbell has weight on it. When the females are completing their barbell movements, the males will share their naked barbell for the burpees. The barbells will be placed side by side and all 4 athletes must be on the same side of the barbell for all barbell movements and burpees.

Part 1 is for time. Any unfinished reps will be added to the total time of 10 minutes.

After Part 1, there will be a 1 minute break for athletes to properly load their barbells.

For Part 2, the team will have 3 minutes to accumulate as many synchronized Overhead Squats in a Male/Female pair. The pair will face each other for the Overhead Squats so the judge may see full depth and extension at the same time. There is no minimum work requirement for any of the athletes and athletes may tag in and out whenever they like. While 2 athletes are lifting, the other two athletes are standing behind their same sex teammate.

Part 2 will be scored as an AMRAP. The score is the number of Synchronized Overhead Squats completed by the team. There are no partial reps given and both reps must achieve full depth at the bottom and full extension at the top.



This is a traditional deadlift with the hands outside the knees. Sumo deadlifts are not allowed. Starting at the floor, the barbell is lifted until hips and knees reach full extension with the shoulders behind the bar. The arms must be straight throughout. The athlete must deadlift with both feet on the correct white numbers in order for the reps to count.

Deliberate bouncing of the barbell is not allowed. Dropping the barbell after the completion of the repetition is permitted. Hitching is permitted, as long as full extension of the knees and hips is eventually reached.

Power Cleans

Each repetition starts from the ground. The bar must be cleaned from the ground to the shoulders in one motion. Each repetition finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended. Full (squat) cleans are permitted.

Power Snatches

The power snatch begins on the ground, and the barbell is brought overhead in one smooth motion. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the body. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing. Split snatches and muscle snatches are permitted as long as they meet the movement requirements. Full (squat) snatches are permitted.

Synchronized Bar Facing Burpees

Each burpee must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell. The athletes’ heads cannot be over the barbell. Males will share their barbell and females will share their barbell. All 4 athletes must hold the bottom position together with their chests and thighs touching the ground. They must then jump over the barbell from both feet and land on two feet. One-footed jumping, landing or stepping over is not permitted.

Synchronized Overhead Squat

Both athletes must achieve the bottom position at the same time for the rep to count. The athletes will face each other with Males using male a male barbell and females using a female barbell. At the bottom, the hip crease must be below the top of the knee. At the top, 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. Athletes may get the barbell overhead any way they choose. A full squat snatch is permitted, but not required, to start the movement if standard depth is achieved.

*10 Foot Walking Lunge = 1 Rep


Part I, the team will begin in the starting area behind the rig and complete their Shoulder to OH. The two females will complete their Synchronized Hanging Knee Raises. The second athlete will complete the Shoulder to OH and the females will complete their Synchronized Hanging Knee Raises once again.

The females will then complete their Shoulder to OH following the same rules as above.

Then any female will complete their lunge walk down 30 feet and back 30 feet. Every 10 feet will be counted as 1 rep. The next female completes and then the 2 males complete. Order does not matter here. Once they final male finishes, the time is noted. Any unfinished reps are added to the final time.


Weighted Walking Lunge (Back Rack/Front Rack/Overhead)

Forward motion will only be allowed while the load is being supported in the back rack, front rack, or overhead position. In the Overhead position, the elbows may be bent but the bar may not touch or drop lower than the top of the athletes head. On each lunge, the trailing knee must make contact with the ground at the bottom. At the top of each step, the athlete must stand with the hips and knees fully extended. If the knee does not touch the ground, or if the next step is initiated (or the weight is dropped) before fully standing up, the barbell will need to be brought backward to where the previous rep began. The feet DO NOT have to come together at the top of the lunge.

Shoulder to Overhead

Each rep begins with the axle on the shoulders. The rep finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead centered over the middle of the body. A shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used, as long as the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees are fully extended, and the axle finishes directly over the body with the feet in line, both clearly touching the correct white number. The bar will begin on the ground and there will be no racks.

Synchronized Hanging Knee Raises

The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and behind the body. At the top of the repetition the athlete must raise their knees above the height of their hips.

It can be touching the shoulder or head while holding.
