Team begins by standing together in an assigned area. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” two men run to their barbell and perform 20 partner deadlifts, then proceed to their wall and perform 20 handstand push-ups between them. Each man must at least attempt one handstand push-up.

After the 20th handstand push-up, both men pass under the wall, at which point the women run to the barbell. They will strip off the 25-pound plates and the outside 45-pound plates. The two women perform 20 partner deadlifts, and proceed to their wall to perform 20 handstand push-ups between them. Each woman must at least attempt one handstand push-up.

After the women pass under the wall, the men will return and perform 20 handstand push-ups, return to the barbell, add 25- and 45-pound bumper plates to the barbell, and perform 20 partner deadlifts. The men then move to the designated finish area, after which the women may pass under the wall to perform 20 handstand push-ups. They return to the barbell, strip off the 25-pound plates and the outside 45-pound plates, and perform 20 partner deadlifts. Once the women are back to the designated finish area, the team is finished.
