This is one of the ‘tougher’ Benchmark Workouts. It is designed to test athletes ability to lift a heavy load for multiple reps followed by performing multiple reps of a highly skilled gymnastics movement. The scaled version has a similar focus.

The limiting factor for each athlete is going to be different which is what makes this a great workout, and also opens up a lot of room for improvement when you repeat it. For some people the squats might not be that limiting, but you will only have a few muscle ups each round. For others, the squat will be really challenging but they may be able to perform unlimited muscle ups per round.
