Hercules Hoist


We aren’t sure what is tougher, the 12 labors Hercules had to go through, or the Herc Hoist. Anchor yourself to the ground, grab on to the rope with your iron grip, and start pulling. Once that weight is at the top, you must lower it SLOWLY. If that weight slams to the ground, you just earned yourself 30 burpees.

Racer Instructions:

  • Pull the rope to raise the weight until the knot or weight reaches the top.
  • Lower the weight slowly and under control, without releasing the rope, until weight reaches the ground.

Failure Modes:

  • Failure to fully raise the weight.
  • Dropping the weight.
  • Elite racers that help each other.

Failure Penalty:

  • 30 Burpees
