“Panda Bear” Complex
There will be one lane for the women and one lane for the men. Each “rung” of the ladder will start with a buy in, followed by the Panda Bear Complex. The athlete will have 2 min to complete the buy in and the complex.
To complete the ladder, there are 6 weights, men’s weights increase in 20# increments, women’s weights increase in 10# increments.
If the athlete puts the bar down at any point during the complex, it is an immediate 5 burpee penalty, then the athlete may pick up where they left off and attempt to finish the complex within the 2 min cap.
If the athlete does not get through a complex, the athlete has the next 2 min to do as many reps as possible of their buy in movement without coming off the bar. This will act as the tie-breaker for people who make it to the same “rung” of the ladder.
