4 Sets for Time - 18 Minute Time Cap
3 Team Members complete the following:
5 Synchronized Burpees over the Wall
Serpent Clean and Jerks E(7) Rx(6) Sc(5)
5 Synchronized Burpees over the Wall
1 Team Member does trail run

Once all 4 Members do trail run, and all sets are completed, all 4 team members meet in corral
and go on a trail run TOGETHER. Once they get back from the run, they all go OVER the wall,
meet up at the serpent and wait for all 4 team members to get there. Once all 4 team members
are back they move their serpent into the final zone where they complete the following.

3 People working:
Serpent Squats E(30) Rx(25) Sc(20)
Once that is finished the team moves to the finish line to complete the workout.

At the start of 3,2,1 GO Teams will move from the corral and 3 athletes go to workout area to
complete Set 1 of the Synchro Burpees over Wall and Serpent C&Js. The fourth athlete will take
off on a trail run. Once the team completes 1 set of the workout they will meet back up at the
corral and wait for their teammate that as running. Once all 4 athletes are back at corral, a new
teammate will go for a run while the 3 teammates will go complete another round of the workout.
Once all work is completed, and all 4 team members have run, all 4 athletes will go for a trail

run, once they return they must go OVER the wall and wait at the serpent until all team members are back and TOUCH the serpent. They then proceed to move the serpent to the final stage and complete Serpent squats, reps depending on division. Once all work is complete, time is taken once all 4 team members cross the finish line.

Synchronized Burpee over the Wall - All 3 athletes must have chest and thighs on the ground at
the same time, once this is achieved the synchronization is complete. All 3 team members must
get over the wall, and when all 3 team members are on the other side the rep is counted. They
do NOT need to clear the wall at the same time, just being on the ground together. Athletes may
help other athletes get over the wall if needed.
Serpent Clean and Jerks - Each athlete grabs a bag, lifts bag to one shoulder, then goes over
head to other shoulder. The opposite shoulder is where the rep is counted, and each rep starts
from the ground.

Trail Run - Approximately 400m, athletes leave the corral and leave the field, staying on the
paved path they run around the baseball field, entering back into the field on the opposite side.
They run back to designated gate and wait for the rest of their team to get back to corral. Run
order is up to the team, but each team member MUST run.

Serpent Squats - Serpent on same shoulder for all 3 teammates, and all must be below parallel
before coming out of the squat.
