Event Description

Athletes will begin standing behind their rower. On the call of “3, 2, 1, GO!”, they will get on their rower and begin rowing. Once the rower display clearly shows the designated number of calories has been reached, the athlete can move to the axle bar and start their thrusters. Athletes must advance the axle bar every 10 reps until all 30 reps have been completed. The athlete must then cross the finish line to complete the event. You will be wearing a 20/14lb vest for the duration of this event. It must remain completely done up until you cross the finish line. The event score is the total time to complete the event or the total number of repetitions completed before the time cap. 1 calorie will equal 1 repetition.
