WOD STANDARDS:

FRONT SQUAT (from the floor)
In the front squat, the barbell must be held in the front rack position. At the bottom, the crease of the hips must pass below the height of the kneecap. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell in control. A full squat clean will count as a repetition as long as all the above requirements are met.

TOES TO BAR (RX)
In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. Both feet must touch the bar, inside the hands, at the same time. The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and behind the body.

*TOES TO BAR (SCALED)
Scaled Athletes will also perform Toes to Bar. Read above for standard. If a Scaled Athlete cannot perform the Toes to Bar movement, then they will be able to scale by performing Knees to Elbow. If they do perform K2E, then they will place lower than scaled athletes performing T2B.

In the knees-to-elbow, the athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the elbows. Both feet must touch the elbows, at the same time. The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back behind the bar and behind the body.
