Does the weekend make it hard for you to stick with your healthy habits? 7 tips for a healthier weekend
Athletes will get 20 minutes to lift their heaviest loads on the back squat, deadlift, and bench press. They will get one bar (no preloading) and can do the lifts in any order they would like. This event is "raw" so no gear assistance like straps or shirts. The judge cannot spot so if a spotter is needed, the athlete will need to arrange that. The spotter can also help load bars as needed.
Bench Press - Bar must lower and touch the chest to be counted as a rep. The butt must remain on the bench for the entire rep.
Back Squat - Athlete must reach depth; hip crease at or lower than the knee.
Deadlift - Athlete needs to have open hips, straight legs, and shoulders behind the bar for a good rep. The bar needs to be controlled down to complete the rep (no dropping).
Athletes will get six minutes to pull a prowler-type sled 34 feet across turf. They will need to remain in a six foot deep box for the duration of the pull. For the lift to count, there can be no rest during the pull. There will be one volunteer to help load weight and turn sleds around (if desired). This is the type of sled pull we will be expecting: https://youtu.be/QZ9eMm6h-N4 (not necessarily the same technique.)
Score is max load of an individual pull within the six minutes. The pull must be COMPLETED within the six minute window.
Same structure as the Sled Pull. Athletes will get six minutes and as many attempts as desired to carry a loaded yoke over the distance of 50 feet. There will be one volunteer to help load/unload weight. Score is max load of an individual carry within the six minutes. The yoke cannot be set down. The carry must be COMPLETED within the six minute window.
