Perform three 4-minute efforts, with a 3-minute break to recover and change the set-up, based on the movement standards you choose.


Listed below are levels for scoring. If you are able to perform all of the standards at a given level, great. However, it is gymnastics Day and there is tremendous variance to what people can do. So, modification is encouraged for you operate this workout with the intended flow, which is:


The Deadlifts get heavier. You should be able to do the final set's weight unbroken for 8 if you were fresh. (however the final set does NOT need to be unbroken) But, it's only 4 minutes and there are 8 reps, so if you are doing slow singles, it will kill the flow. It should simply flow: Easy to Moderate to Kinda Heavy


The Handstand Push-Ups progression should flow the same way... Easy to Moderate to Kinda Hard. You should not be failing single attempts at the final effort because that will kill the clock, but breaking up the 12 reps into 3-4 sets at the end is fine.


The Pistol progression should be the same thing.... Step Ups (easy) to Weighted Step Ups (moderate) to Pistols (kinda hard)
