In a super-secret testing of the NorCal Workout 2 a couple weeks ago, Pat Barber gave it a shot to see what would happen. The current requirements are a minimum of 10 reps of each, but when Pat did it, they required a minimum of 20 reps of each.
The workout is:
Max reps in 10 minutes of:
Ground-to-Shoulder (Male: 185#, Female: 105#)
Pat did 5 reps of each, back and forth, until he reached 20 each, and then he started emphasizing the cleans. He finished with 63 total reps (25 Muscle-Ups and 38 Cleans). He says now that if he was going to do it again, he'd focus on the cleans even more with the 10 rep minimum.
NorCal has uploaded a video of the new standard on the second workout for Day 1.
