Movement Standards:

Barbell Facing Burpee

  • Athletes must use a barbell with 18-inch plates.
  • Burpees must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell.
  • Athletes may jump or step back to reach the bottom position. Chest and thighs must tough the ground with the head behind the barbell. Hands and feet must remain within the width of the plates.
  • Stepping and/or jumping back to the starting position are permitted. Athletes must jump over the barbell using a two foot take off. Single leg jumping or stepping over the bar is not permitted.
  • Scaled teams may choose the step over the barbell.


  • The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one motion.
  • The rep is credited when the barbell is at full lockout overhead, with hips, knees and arms fully extended and the bar directly over or slightly behind the middle of the body.
  • No part of the body besides the feet may touch the ground.
  • Deliberately bouncing the barbell is not permitted.
  • A muscle snatch, power snatch, squat snatch, or split snatch may be used.

Video Standards:
If you are intending to qualify for the Main Event you will be asked for a video submission at the conclusion of the qualifier. To avoid having to redo a workout, please ensure you film your workouts at the time of completion. If you have a Smartphone, the app “WodProof” is highly recommended. A clock or timer with the running workout time clearly visible should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be seen clearly meeting the movement standards. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause. Please be sure you have enough battery life, memory and time to upload your video. You may need to increase the limit on your YouTube in order to allow a longer video. If an athlete qualifies to compete on-site at the CanWest, they will be asked to submit workouts chosen by The CanWest Judges team.
