· CLEAN & JERK - The athlete pulls the loaded barbell from the ground and receives it in a full squat. Full squat is met when the crease of the hip falling below the knee or patella. The judge does not count any reps that fall short of the defined range of motion. From the squat, the athlete may receive the bar overhead in anyway – thruster, press, push press, jerk. Elbows and shoulders must lock out with bar overhead. Overhead defined as arms holding bar above the body whereas the ear is visible at the anterior of the bicep. Knees and hips must also be at full extension. When dropping the bar, the athlete will keep his/her hands on the barbell until it has passed the chest. There is no “dumping” the bar from overhead intentionally. BE SAFE!
· PULL-UPS - All pull-ups must start from a dead hang and end with chin above the bar. Any pull-up variation is acceptable as long as it meets the defined range of motion.
· DEADLIFT – The athlete pulls the loaded barbell from the ground and stands with knees and hips in full extension. The athlete may not “dump” the bar from the standing position, but may allowed it to drop with hands on the bar at all times for safety.
· BURPEES – The athlete will drop to his/her hands and toes, perform a push-up. Push-up defined as the hip and chest both touching the ground, followed by the arms pushing to full extension. The athlete then jumps with his/her knees, hips and shoulders in full “extension”. The hands clap overhead as the athlete jumps. Overhead defined as arms above the body whereas the ear is visible at the anterior of the bicep.

If you are unable to meet any points of performance because of injury or any reason, you must make your judge aware before the event begins. It is the discretion of the judge, head judge or organizers to allow a competitor to compete in an event without being able to meet the required points of performance. Example: not able to lock out elbows out overhead due to past injury or otherwise.
