Questions we have received, and their answers:

Q: Re: Siamese Twins, can the coed teams spilt up in whatever combo they like? 

A: Yes. It is each team's choice how to break into pairs for this workout.


Q: In the Bonus time, when the team is working on accruing bar muscle ups or pull ups, are those movements synchronized?

A: No, the Bonus reps will be accrued by one athlete working at a time.


Q: Are we allowed to put tape on the pull up bars?

A: No.


Q: Are we allowed to wear gloves in the workouts?

A: Yes. Gloves will be allowed in any of the workouts.


Q: In Freak Show, will there be two bars for the coed teams?

A: No, there will only be one bar per team. The female pair will go first, then the teams will add the weight for the male pair to use.


Q: In Freak Show, what are the relative sizes of the slam balls?

A: Here is a picture of all 3 slam balls next to a Dynamax med ball:


Q: What is the "acceptable position" for the Active Rest plank hold in Siamese Twins?

A: The plank should have both legs and arms locked out (straight) and both arms and both legs must remain in contact with the ground. No crossed legs or bent elbows. Hips must be below the shoulders. In other words, no pikes.
