10 – 200 meter sprints, alternating partners

For time (15 minute time cap):
When the workout begins, Teammate A will have one minute to perform a buy-in of 20 double unders and 10 eye-level kettlebell swings. He or she will then do as many thrusters as possible with the remainder of the minute. When the minute is up, the head judge will call "3-2-1 switch", and teammate B will do 20 double unders and 10 eye-level kettlebell swings. Once those movements are completed, he or she will continue to perform thrusters until the minute is up. After the judge announces switch, teammate A will perform the buy-in, then continue to chip away at the thrusters. The cycle will continue until the team reaches 50 thrusters total. Each team will have one barbell and one kettlebell to share. Please bring your own jump ropes.
Once you have completed all 50 thrusters:
If you finish in under 8 minutes, you will use the time remaining to do as many snatches(power, split, or squat) as possible with the same barbell and weight as your thrusters. You DO NOT have to continue the alternating minute structure for the snatches, so both competitors can contribute to the rep total in whatever method they choose. Your score will be your snatch total.
If you do not finish the thrusters in 8 minutes, your score will be your time.
The weights for each division are as follows:
Men's RX- 70 lb kettlebell, 155 lb thrusters
Women's RX- 44 lb kettlebell, 95 lb thrusters
Men's Scaled and Masters- 53 lb kettlebell, 115 lb thrusters
Women's Scaled and Masters- 35 lb kettlebell, 75 lb thrusters
