Workout Notes

Video Details:

The video starts with the competitor stating his/her first and last name along with the division they are competing in.  Once that is complete the competitor must measure all equipment noted.  All views of the camera are at a 45 degree angle to show complete movement and movement specifications.



With the Start of the video the athlete must have a SCALE available.  Every weight that will be placed on the barbell must be weighted along with the Barbell and CLEARLY shown in the video.  The athlete must ALSO weigh himself in the event of a tie break.

Movement Specifics:

  • Snatch 
    • The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one motion.
    • Power, squat and split snatches are all permitted, but in each instance the athlete’s feet must be brought back in line.
    • This is not a ground-to-overhead any way.
    • A clean and jerk is a no rep.
    • The bar can be dropped from overhead. 
    • If a barbell is dropped, the barbell must settle on the ground before the athlete begins the next repetition.
  • Clean and Jerk
    • Start each rep with the barbell on the ground.
    • No bouncing or dropping and catching the barbell on the rebound.
    • If dropped, the barbell must settle on the ground before the start of the next rep.
    • Power cleans, squat cleans, and split cleans are permitted.
    • Hang cleans are not allowed
    • The lift must have two distinct phases: the clean and the jerk.
    • Snatching is not permitted.
    • The barbell must make contact with the shoulders.
    • It is NOT necessary to lock out the hips and legs to complete the clean before lifting the bar overhead.
    • The rep is credited when: – The barbell is locked out overhead, and arms, hips, and legs are extended. – The bar is over or slightly behind the center of the body, with feet in line.
    • A press, push press, push jerk, or split jerk are all permitted as long as the required finish position is achieved.
    • Receiving any assistance other than adjusting loading is not permitted unless safety is an immediate concern.


 Workout Breakdown:  

This workout is for Max total weight lifted.  At the 3, 2, 1 GO, the athlete begins with an empty barbell and starts loading it.  Before EACH lift the athlete must state the exact weight on the barbell το the camera.  The athlete has three attempts for the Snatch and three for the Clean and Jerk.  From the Snatch to the Clean, the athlete must CLEAR the barbell and start with an empty barbell.  The time frame can be broken down as needed to complete the workout.  The score is the weight lifted and successfully held overhead of both movements in total (snatch weight + clean and jerk weight).
