The Bar Muscle up makes it into the Open!!! Such and elegant pairing of movements. Management will be important. Both movements are largely similar, just in opposing directions. So while the weight is light expect it to be sufficient in deteriorating your Muscle up. As for the Muscle up, efficiency starts in your shapes. Theres only TWO shapes in the Bar Muscle Up, the arch and the hollow. Jump into your hollow and use your swing pop to your arch way out front, and tap toes back to hollow out front. Maintaining some patience with straight arms and pressing down not pulling on the bar. Eyes stay on the horizon to keep the torso up. We will post a video to Instagram. 

Open Workout 16.3

Complete as many rounds and reps as possible in 7 minutes of:
10 power snatches
3 bar muscle-ups

Men use 75 lb.
Women use 55 lb.

Notes
This workout begins with the barbell on the floor and the athlete standing tall. At the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will perform 10 power snatches, then move to the pull-up bar to perform muscle-ups. After 3 reps, the athlete will move back to the barbell and begin their next round.

Your score will be the total number of repetitions completed within the 7-minute time cap.

Tiebreak
The scoring for this workout includes a tiebreak. At the end of each round, time should be marked. When you submit your final result, your score will be the number of reps completed. There will be another field in which you will enter the elapsed time at which you completed your last full round. In the case where 2 athletes have the same score (total number of reps), the athlete with the lower tiebreak time will be ranked higher.

Note: All tiebreak times must be reported in elapsed time, not in time remaining. If you are using a countdown timer, you must convert to elapsed time before reporting your score. For this reason, it is recommended you set your clock to count up.

Equipment
• Barbell
• Plates to load to the appropriate weight for your division
• Collars
• Pull-up bar

For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions.

*The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 34 kg (75 lb.), 29 kg (65 lb.), 25 kg (55 lb.), 20 kg (45 lb.), and 15 kg (35 lb.).

Video Submission Standards
Prior to starting, film the plates and barbell to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.
