The Strongman (and woman)

  • Scaled
    • 4 Minutes for both women to establish 1 rep max ground-to-overhead, 2 minutes transition, 4 minutes for women to complete max effort (quantity) hang snatches with a minimum weight of 35 lbs.
    • 2 minutes transition
    • 4 minutes for both men to establish 1 rep max ground-to-overhead, 2 minutes transition, 4 minutes for men to complete max effort (quantity) hang snatches with a minimum weight of 65 lbs.
    • Details: Athletes are permitted to pre-load barbell, and at “3, 2, 1, GO,” the four minute time allotment begins.  Female pair goes first, male pair goes second but all athletes can be on the floor, and anybody is permitted to assist with weight changes, etc.  Athletes must announce weight to judge BEFORE lifting.  Each team will have a 35 lb women’s barbell AND a 45 lb mens barbell.  Women can opt to use either (the women’s barbell is about 2 inches shorter inside the collars, so if you have a super wide snatch grip you may want to use the men’s barbell).  Each team will receive 4 scores (women’s 1RM, men’s 1RM, women’s max effort, men’s max effort), and then an overall event score.
    • Standards:
      • 1 rep max (ground-to-overhead): Movement begins at the ground and athlete must show full extension of knees, hips and arms at the top.  Athletes are permitted to complete this movement as a snatch, clean and jerk, or other combination of ground-to-overhead.  Once EITHER athlete completes a successful rep at a particular weight, the weight can not be reduced (ex: Jen and Jamie are working toward their 1RM – Jen competes a successful rep at 105 lbs – both athletes can go up in weight, but can not reduce below 105 lbs.)  Score is combined weight.
      • Max effort (hang snatches): Athletes may select the minimum weight OR anything greater than.  Barbell must be deadlifted, then dipped into hang position (anywhere between the top of the knee and the hip crease).  At the top of the snatch, athletes must show full knee, hip and arm extension (please note that barbell must be caught above head to be a good rep…no pressing out if you catch in front of your face).  Athletes must tag hands before switching.  Reps can be completed in any quantity by any individual, but each athlete MUST complete at least 1 successful rep.  Score is weight selected, multiplied by number of reps completed.
  • RX and RX+
    • 4 Minutes for both women to establish 1 rep max snatch, 2 minutes transition, 4 minutes for women to complete max effort (quantity) snatches with a minimum weight of 85 lbs for RX and 105 lbs for RX+.
    • 2 minutes transition
    • 4 minutes for both men to establish 1 rep max snatch, 2 minutes transition, 4 minutes for men to complete max effort (quantity) snatches with a minimum weight of 115 lbs for RX and 155 lbs for RX+.

    • Standards:
      • 1 rep max (snatch): Movement begins at the ground and athlete must show full extension of knees, hips and arms at the top (squat, power and split are all permitted – please note that barbell must be caught above head to be a good rep…no pressing out if you catch in front of your face).  Once EITHER athlete completes a successful rep at a particular weight, the weight can not be reduced (ex: Jen and Jamie are working toward their 1RM – Jen competes a successful rep at 105 lbs – both athletes can go up in weight, but can not reduce below 105 lbs.)  Score is combined weight.
      • Max effort (snatches): Athletes may select the minimum weight OR anything greater than.  Barbell comes from the ground, be caught above head, and at the top of the snatch, athletes must show full knee, hip and arm extension.  Athletes must tag hands before switching.  Reps can be completed in any quantity by any individual, but each athlete MUST complete at least 1 successful rep.  Score is weight selected, multiplied by number of reps completed.
