Standards
Row
Athletes will start on the rower. They must remain on the rower until the display reads 30 calories. The athlete may coast to the required calories, but cannot make an attempt to get off the rower (e.g., unstrapping early or standing up) until they have reached 30 calories. The athlete may adjust the damper setting and foot positions at any time during the row.

Lateral Burpees
Each burpee must be performed parallel to the barbell. The chest and thighs touch the ground at the bottom. You must jump over the barbell from both feet and land on both feet. One-footed jumping or stepping over is not permitted. The next rep will then begin on the opposite side parallel to the barbell.

Wall Balls
In the wall ball shot, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to hit the specified target. The center of the ball must hit the target at or above the specified target height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the wall, it is a no rep.

Part 2:

The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted 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 middle of the body. Any variation of a snatch is permitted i.e. squat, power, muscle as long as all other standards are met. Slight pressing out of the bar with the elbows will be allowed.
