*Weights and events subject to change
Teams will have 120 seconds to carry a sandbag as far as possible, with 50 foot lengths. Once the bag is picked up, you can pass it off to your partner at any point in time. The bag can be carried in any way, and passed to a partner in any way.
One drop is allowed, on the second drop of the sandbag, you are done, and your distance will be marked on drop.
This means you must pass to your partner for him or her without it touching the ground to continue your round.
90 seconds, maximum reps. Teammates will deadlift together on the same barbell. There will be "up" and "down" commands for every rep. Straps and belts allowed.
This is an "I go, you go" event. On "GO," Teammate 1 will run 50 feet to designated spot to begin an arm-over-arm rope pull of a sled. Once the sled crosses the 50 foot line, teammate 1 will then move to opposite side of sled, to perform a reverse sled drag back to the starting position.
Once the sled completely crosses the line, teammate 2 will begin and complete the exact same relay.
Shoulder to Overhead
Maximum reps in 90 seconds from "shoulder to overhead" reps with a 10" valor log bar. Only one teammate will go at a time, but teammates can swap in and out as many times as desired.
Teammate 1 carries farmers walk handles 50 feet to his or her teammate on other end. Teammate 2 then proceeds to carry the handles 50 feet back across the line. Handles must completely cross the line on each end.
