GYM NEWS: Well it’s the last week of the Open and nobody will be saved with an alternative workout this week. We are ALL doing 19.5 🙂

Athletes may scale weight accordingly and substitute Chest to bar pull-ups for pull-ups, jumping pull-ups, banded pull-ups or ring rows.

For athletes that do not have the optimal front rack position with a Barbell, Kettlebells may be used instead.

For classes, there will be no time cap… 🙂

For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete all the movements. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.

Any athlete who in any way alters the equipment or movements described in this document or shown in the workout standards video may be disqualified from the competition.


Prior to starting, film the pull-up bar, plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Your judge and a clock or timer with the running workout time should be clearly visible throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause.
