Your score is recorded as "X/Y," where X = # of rounds completed every 30 seconds and Y = # of rounds completed for the remainder of the 10 minute period.Two other notes:

  1. For a round to be successful, once the barbell leaves the deck for the power clean, it may not return to the deck until the end of the round.
  2. Be sure to stand up fully from the power clean before beginning your front squat.
