Time Cap: 8 Minutes
One bar – athletes change their own weights.
15 Clean & Jerk (115/85) (75/55)
15 Clean & Jerk (135/95) (95/65)
15 Clean & Jerk (155/105) (115/85)
Clean: Any style clean is permitted (muscle, power, squat, split). The barbell begins on the ground and must touch the shoulders before the athlete can can begin the jerk portion.
Jerk: Any style shoulder-to-overhead is permitted (strict press, push press, push jerk, split jerk). The jerk is completed when the elbows, shoulders, hips, and knees are fully extended, and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line. If the jerk is missed but brought back to the front rack, the athlete may re-attempt the jerk from there without taking the barbell back to the floor.
The clean and the jerk do not have to be two distinct movements. In other words, an athlete may go straight from a power clean into a push press/jerk without showing full extension in between the clean and the jerk. Athletes lacking mobility to have the barbell touch the shoulder must demonstrate this to the judge prior to the workout.
For the snatch, the barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one smooth motion. The athlete may receive the bar in a muscle, power, squat or split position. At the top, the barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.
Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing. The feet are the only body part that may be in contact the ground during the lift (i.e., if the knees drop and touch the ground at the bottom of a lift, the rep does not count).
Athletes may break up the work however they choose.
