Prior to starting the workout, the athlete will need to set up a
barbell, with standard plates, to jump over during the burpees.
This workout begins with the dumbbells resting on the floor and
the athlete standing tall. After the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete
may lift the dumbbells to the shoulders and perform 1 squat. The
athlete will then return the dumbbells to the floor and complete
1 bar-facing burpee. He or she will then complete 2 dumbbell
squats and 2 bar-facing burpees, 3 and 3, etc. This portion of
the workout is over when the athlete lands with two feet on the
opposite side of the barbell after the final burpee, or when the
clock reaches 12 minutes.
If the athlete completes all the squats and burpees before
the 12-minute cap, he or she will use the remaining time to
complete Workout 18.2a, a 1-rep-max clean. The clean must
be performed with a barbell, and the plates must be secured
with collars. The athlete may complete as many attempts as he
or she likes until the time cap is up but will only receive credit
for the heaviest successful lift. Plates smaller than 1⁄2 lb. may
not be used, and the minimum weight increase will be 1 pound.
The athlete may receive assistance from other people to load
the barbell between lifts. Each athlete may use only one barbell
for 18.2 and 18.2a, and male athletes must use a 45-lb. (20-kg)
The athlete’s score for 18.2 will be the total time it takes to
complete all 110 reps or the number of reps completed at the
end of 12 minutes. The athlete’s score for 18.2a will be the
heaviest weight successfully cleaned, in pounds. If the athlete
does not complete the squats and burpees in less than 12
minutes, he or she will not log a score for 18.2a.
Note: If an athlete chooses to scale 18.2, he or she will also
have a scaled 18.2a score. An athlete who completes 18.2 as
prescribed and fails to complete a lift will be ranked higher on
the Leaderboard for both 18.2 and 18.2a than athletes who scale
There is no tiebreak for Workout 18.2. However, the scoring for
Workout 18.2a does include a tiebreak. In the case where two
athletes clean the same amount on 18.2a, their times on 18.2
will serve as the tiebreak, and the athlete with the faster time on
18.2 will be ranked higher on 18.2a. Ties will not be broken for
athletes who did not complete a lift.
