WORK is the ultimate competition for the functional fitness community — a one workout, all-out-effort event that will give you a chance to see how you stack up against thousands of other athletes. WORK takes what was started as a weekly 5 a.m. workout among Ten Thousand athletes and ramps it up with a $5,000 prize purse and a live-updated leaderboard. Whether you want to challenge yourself or challenge for the cash, register below and get ready to put in the WORK.

THE WORKOUT

At 3..2..1..GO! Athletes will have 8 minutes to complete 100 Calories on an Assault Bike (from Assault Fitness, other bikes will NOT be permitted).

At the completion of the 100 calories on the Assault Bike, athletes will complete as many repetitions of Hand Stand Push Ups as possible in the remaining time.

SCORING

  • This workout will have an 8-minute cap. Your score will be the number of completed hand stand push ups completed. The tie breaker will be the time you completed your 100th Assault Bike calorie

INSTRUCTIONS

  • At 3..2..1..GO! Athletes will have 8 minutes to complete 100 Calories on an Assault Bike (from Assault Fitness, other bikes will NOT be permitted).
  • At the completion of the 100 calories on the Assualt Bike, athletes will complete as many repetitions of Hand Stand Push Ups as possible in the remaining time.
  • This workout will have an 8-minute cap.

MOVEMENT STANDARDS

ASSAULT BIKE:

  • The assault bike from Assault Fitness is the ONLY bike permitted for this workout.
  • Athletes will start OFF the bike and at 3..2..1..Go! will approach the bike.
  • Athletes will remain connected to the bike with both hands and both feet (on pedals) for the entire 100 Calories.
  • Bikes are permitted to be preset to count down or up (to/ from) 100 calories.
  • Your video MUST contain the before and after view of the screen to verify the 100 calories was completed.

HANDSTAND PUSH UP:
Before starting, step

1: Stand with back to the wall, on the same surface the hands will be on during the handstand push-up. Feet must be no wider than hip width, with heels touching the wall. Look straight ahead. Mark a line on the wall at the height of the top of the head. Before starting, step

2: Place elbow on the wall, keep the wrist straight, and make a fist. - With a straight wrist, measure the distance from the wall to the end of the knuckle furthest from the wall. - Divide this number in half (to be used in step 3).

3: From the mark at the top of the head (step 1), add the number established in step 2 (half the distance between wall and knuckle) and make a second mark. - This will be the height of the heel line for the handstand push-ups. - Once the height of the heel line is established, mark it with a marker, chalk, or tape. - Judges may restore the line between rounds as needed. • Example: If an athlete is 65 inches tall and measures 14 inches from wall to knuckle, the athlete would add seven inches to the height mark for a final target line of 72 inches.

4: Begin with arms locked out, heels in contact with the wall, hips open, and body in line with the arms. • Heels must be above the pre-marked line. • Only the heels may be touching the wall at the start and finish of each rep. • The rep is credited upon return to the starting position.

5: At the bottom, the head must make contact with the ground. • If the head and hands are on different surfaces, the surfaces must be level (i.e., if the hands are on plates and there is a pad under the head, the top of the pad must be level with the top of the plates). • The feet do not need to remain in contact with the wall for the duration of the movement, but heels must touch above the line at the beginning and end of each rep. *Kipping is allowed.

RULES OF SUBMISSION

  • 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 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 clearly seen meeting the movement standards. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause.
  • To be eligible for the cash prize, you must submit a video along with your score. However, you do not need to submit a video and can just add your score to the leaderboard if you do not intend to compete for a cash prize and simply want to see how you stack up against the field.
  • Upload your video by April 17th, 2021 at 6pm EST in accordance with the video submission guidelines.
  • Post to instagram and tag @tenthousand.cc and @tenthousand.work
  • For scores to be accepted, the athlete’s full range of motion, as described in the movement standards, must be visible through the duration of the video without obstruction.
  • Modified alternative version is not eligible for the cash prize.
