On the call of go, the athlete may begin rowing. After the 600m (men) or 500m (women) is completed the athlete will begin the 15 x 15m shuttle runs (1 rep= 7.5m out & 7.5m back). 

After the 15 shuttle runs are completed the athlete may move to the wall to complete 30 wallballs. 

Continue in this fashion until 4 rounds are completed. 


The athlete’s score will be the total time it takes to complete the test or the total number of repetitions completed at the time cap.

Movement Standards:


The athlete may begin the workout seated in the rower but may not grab the handle until the call of “go.” The monitor must be set to zero at the beginning of each round.

Shuttle Runs

Each rep of the shuttle run = 15m (7.5m out & 7.5m back). Each rep starts with the athlete’s feet clearly behind the start line. At each turnaround, both feet and one hand must touch the ground over the line before the athlete may return. Stepping on or touching the line will not count. On the final shuttle run the athlete may run over the line without touching the ground to commence the wallballs.


The movement must begin from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to hit the specified target. The centre of the ball must hit the target at or above the specified target height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the wall, it is a no rep.
