Team Workout 4 Video Explanation

General Rules:
Teams of four are comprised of the two men and two women who did not compete in Team Workout 3. Athletes will start on the ground below their pull-up bar. At Go, they will jump to their bar. Any jumping before the Go will result in a false start. This workout is a chipper. All pull-ups must be completed before the kettlebell swings, all the swings before the double-unders, and all the double-unders before the overhead squats. Only one athlete may be working at a time. The athletes may work in any order they choose. There is no minimum number of reps each athlete must complete. There is a 30min time cap. If a team cannot finish in the time cap, their result is the time cap plus a one second penalty for each rep not completed.

Chest to bar pull-ups:
These are standard chest to bar pull-ups. Full extension of the arms must be reached at the bottom. At the top, the chest (anywhere below the clavicle) must come into contact with the bar. Just achieving sufficient height is not enough. There must be visible contact. Any grip on the bar and any type of kipping are allowed as long as these standards are met.

Kettlebell swing:
At the top of the swing, the kettlebell must be fully inverted (bell over the handle), centered over the feet with the hips and knees fully extended and the arms straight. At the bottom, the wrists must touch the thighs and the bell must pass behind the heels. There is no requirement for flexing the knees.

Double-unders:
These are standard double-unders with the rope passing twice around the body in a forward motion with each jump. Swinging the rope backward is not permitted. For the rep to count, the rope must clear twice. Attempts where the rope catches before clearing twice do not count. You are permitted to use your own rope.

Overhead squat:
This is a standard overhead squat. The barbell must be kept overhead with the arms locked. At the bottom, the crease of the hips must pass below the height of the knee cap. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell over heels. The judges will be particularly strict about ensuring the hip becomes fully open at the top (no leaning forward)
