For the snatch, the athlete must bring the bar from the ground to the overhead position in one smooth motion. At the top, the arms, hips and knees must be fully locked out with the bar directly over the middle of the athlete’s body and the feet in line under the body. No part of the body other than the feet may touch the ground during the execution of the lift. A muscle snatch, power snatch, squat snatch or split snatch may be used. This is NOT a ground-to-overhead any way. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then lifted overhead, is a no rep.
Clean and Jerk
During the clean, the barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted from the ground to the shoulders in one motion. During the jerk, the barbell must be lifted from the front rack position to overhead. The rep is counted when the barbell is fully locked out overhead directly over the middle of the athlete’s body, with the arms, hips, and knees extended, and the feet in line under the body. No part of the body other than the feet may touch the ground during the execution of the lift.
A muscle clean, power clean, split clean, or squat clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the rack position on the shoulders. Once racked, a press, push press, split jerk, or push jerk may be used to lock the barbell out overhead. The barbell must pass through the front-rack position before going overhead; snatching is not permitted.
This is a standard chin-over-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom with the feet off the ground. At the top the chin must break the horizontal plane of the bar.
The monitor must be set to zero at the beginning of each row. The athlete or the judge may reset the monitor. The athlete must stay seated with their hands on the handle until the monitor reads 50 calories.
Every repetition of the thruster must have the athlete pass below parallel where the hip crease is clearly below the top of the knee and finish with the athlete fully locked out overhead with the arms, hips and legs extended and the dumbbells over the center of the athlete’s body.
Burpee Box Jump
Athlete must complete a Burpee, where the chest and thighs touch the ground before moving on to the box jump. Every rep must begin with both feet on the floor. The rep finishes with the athlete standing with the hips and knees fully extended while in control on top of the box. Rx’d athletes must use a two-foot takeoff and a two-foot landing.
The deadlift begins with the barbell on the ground and finishes when the athletes stand up the weight to full extension of the knees and hips, with their shoulders behind the bar at the top of the movement.
The athletes may choose any grip they like, but their feet must be inside their hands. No sumo stances are permitted. Once the athletes have achieved lockout, they may drop the barbell from the top. Any repetition that is bounced will not count.
Every repetition of the toes-to-bar starts with the athlete hanging at full extension and the heels behind the vertical plane that the pull-up bar creates. The repetition is counted when both feet touch the pull-up bar at the same time between the hands. As long as the feet make contact inside the hands, any grip is permitted. The athlete may make contact with any portion of the foot.
