A handclap between teammates will begin each new athlete’s turn. Each new athlete must complete their 40 Double Unders (80 Singles) before their 3 rounds of “DT,” and must also change any weight on the barbell.

If an athlete fails a Muscle-up or Pull-up that rep will not count towards the team's total score. Reattempts are allowed. However, a 10 Burpee “buy-out” penalty from the Muscle-ups/Pull-ups can be performed if any reps are failed and the athlete would like to move on to the Snatches. No matter how many successful MUs/Pus have been completed, the 10 Burpee buy-out number remains the same. The Burpee buy-out can also performed at any time an athlete chooses before any MU/PU attempts, which will take the place of those reps entirely. No scored reps will be awarded to the team for the 10 Burpees, but that teammate may then move on to the Snatches. There is no penalty or buy-out for missed snatches. Athletes must complete all Snatch reps before a teammate can be tagged in.

Carries can be performed anyhow. Again, there is no switching during the 400 meters. If teams complete the Partner/Sandbag Carry, with any time remaining they will AMRAP Wall Ball Shots.

Athletes will work one at a time. Teams will determine their own order. Athletes must perform all 3 movements at some point. For instance, once an athlete completes a set of 21, they cannot perform that movement again. If teams complete the set of 9’s, with any time remaining they will AMRAP the set of 9 at the same exercise movement and in the same order. For instance, if an athlete ended with 9 Thrusters, they would then stay on that exercise.
