Each athlete must complete one of the lifts. Lifts must be completed in the order listed. Once an athlete attempts a specific lift, they are locked into it. Weight may be increased or decreased at any time. Only 1 athlete can work at a time (other athletes are not permitted to warm-up while another athlete is still working on a lift). Once an athlete says they are complete, they may not lift again, and the next athlete may begin. Teammates are permitted to help change weights at any point. Time may be split up in any way (12 minutes total for all 3 lifts).

  • Standards
    • Once the timer starts athletes will approach the empty barbell, and all athletes are permitted to get the barbell loaded at any time.
    • Before athlete begins any lift, clips are required to be on the barbell, and athlete is required to state the weight on the bar to be sure both parties are in agreement before the attempt begins.
    • Snatch – Athletes are permitted to complete any snatch variation (power snatch, hang snatch, squat snatch, hang squat snatch). Athlete must catch the barbell overhead (minimal press out permitted), and complete the lift showing complete control and full extension of knees, hips and arms, neutral head position.
    • Clean – Athletes are permitted to complete any clean variation (power clean, hang clean, squat clean, hang squat clean). Athlete must catch barbell in front rack position with elbows in front of barbell, and show complete control and extension of knees and hip.
    • Should-to-Overhead – Athletes are permitted to complete any shoulder-to-overhead variation (shoulder press, push press, push jerk, split jerk). The barbell will come from the floor, and athletes may get it to start position in front rack as they see fit (clean, hang clean, squat clean). Athlete must show complete control and full extension of knees, hips and arms, neutral head position.
    • Rope Climbs
      • Legless – Athletes must begin movement with hands below tape line (roughly 8 feet high). Using only hands, athlete must ascend, touch crossbar on rig (12 feet high). After making contact with crossbar, athlete is permitted to use legs, and is required to control descent until both hands are back below the tape line. Jumping up or down will be a no rep.
      • Standard Rope Climb – Athletes must begin movement with hands below tape line (roughly 8 feet high), ascend touching crossbar on rig (12 feet high), then control descent until both hands are back below the tape line. Jumping up or down will be a no rep.
      • Progressions – Athletes must begin movement with back flat on ground, and rope in a vertical position between legs (legs may be slightly bent with feet planted on ground). Once athlete begins ascent, feet must remain stationary. Athlete will pull themselves to a vertical standing position (full extension of hips and knees), then descend until back is flat on ground again and rope has returned to vertical position (we realize there will be some movement, which is fine).
    • Scoring
      • Each lift will receive a placement. Max effort rope climbs will receive a placement. Those 4 placements will be added up for an overall score, which translates to an overall placement. This ensures that each lift is an equal contribution to the overall placement, and the rope climbs count for about 25% of your overall placement.
        • Example
          • Snatch – 2nd place
          • Clean – 31st place
          • Should-to-Overhead – 16th place
          • Rope Climb Max – 5th place
            • 2 + 31 + 16 + 5 = 54 (this score would then be assigned an overall place)
