Each team will have two minutes to perform as many reps as possible at each station. There will be a 1 minute rest between stations. Each team will be ranked on each individual station. The rankings for each of the 5 stations will be totaled, and the teams will be ranked off of that total for a final ranking on the “Two Minute Tangos”. “Two Minute Tangos” final ranking will count as one quarter of the overall scoring for the Tango event.

Alternating Box Jumps Overs:  Athlete 1 will jump onto the box with both feet taking off of the ground at the same time and landing on top of the box at the same time. Athlete is NOT required to fully extend hips on top of the box. The athlete will then jump or step off of the opposite side of the box. The rep is complete when Athlete 1’s feet have made contact with the ground on the opposite side of the box. Once athlete 1 has made contact with the ground, athlete 2 may begin his/her rep. Athletes must alternate reps. Step-ups are permitted for scaled athletes. Rx Men will jump to a 30″ box. Women’s Rx, Men’s Scaled, and Mixed Rx will jump to a 24″ box. Women’s Scaled and Mixed Scaled will jump to a 20″ box.

Slam (Dead) Ball Ground to Over Shoulder: Weighted dead (slam) ball will begin on the ground. One athlete will clean the ball up to his/her shoulder, making sure hips reach full extension, then return the ball to the ground by pushing the ball OVER the shoulder (NOT outside the shoulder), with the ball falling behind his/her body. Athletes may switch as needed. All Rx Men will use the 100# ball. All Rx Women and Scaled Men will use the 80# ball. All Scaled Women will use the 60# ball.

Partner wall balls: Partner A will squat the med ball and throw the ball to the target. Partner B will receive the ball off of the wall, squat and throw the ball back to the same target. Only one partner is squatting at a given time. For a rep to count, the athletes’ hip creases must pass below the horizontal plane of the knee and the ball must touch the wall at the designated height. Men’s Rx will throw a 30# ball to a 10ft. target. Women’s Rx and Men’s Scaled, and Mixed Rx will throw a 20# ball to a 10ft target. Women’s Scaled and Mixed Scaled will be tossing a 14# ball to a 9ft target.

Synchronized Chest-to-bar Pull-up: Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. Both athletes’ arms must be fully extended at the bottom. At the top, both athletes’ chests, at or below the clavicle, must clearly come into contact with the bar at the same time. If one athlete does not touch their chest or their chests don’t touch at the same time, that is a no rep. Scaled: Synchronized Pull-ups: Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. Both athletes’ arms must be fully extended at the bottom. At the top, both athletes chins must clear the top plane of the bar at the same time. If one athlete does not clear the bar with their chin or their chin doesn’t clear the bar at the same time, that is a no rep.
*For all divisions, both athletes will be on the same length of 6 foot bar, meaning the shorter athletes will need to jump or use a box to reach the bar.

Blind Row: Both athletes will each be on his/her own rower and will row for max calories for 2 minutes, without the ability to see his/her screen. No…you won’t be blindfolded, although that may be fun…(more so to watch athletes get in and out of the rower blindfolded…;) Rower screens will be flipped up so your judge can see your numbers but you cannot. The judge cannot tell you your pace or your calories, only the time remaining. Your score will be total calories rowed between both partners. Any damper setting is allowed. Athletes may be in the rower before the 2 minutes begin but may not touch the handle until GO is called.
