Event Description

Athletes will begin on their platform with an unloaded bar. On the call
of “3, 2, 1, GO!”, the athlete will load their bar and make their first
attempt. The athlete must verbally confirm the weight on the bar to
their judge before making their attempt. Athletes are allowed a
maximum of 3 attempts within the 6 minute time cap. If the bar or
athlete come off the platform in anyway, the lift will not count. If any
part of the athlete’s body touches the ground other than the feet, the
lift will not count.

Movement Standards

Clean and Jerk

  • The bar must be taken from the ground to the shoulders in one
    continuous motion. Hang cleans are not permitted.
  • A muscle clean, power clean, split clean or squat clean is
    permitted.
  • Pressing from a back rack is not allowed.
  • The athlete may press, push press, push jerk or split jerk to get
    the bar overhead as long as the feet are brought back together
    before the bar is lowered.
  • For the rep to count, the athlete must show control of the bar overhead with their knees, hips and elbows fully locked out and the bar over the center of the body.
