“Lift Ticket” Competition Workout Description
Competitors will need a timer that counts upwards or downwards to 15:00, and a barbell with all necessary incremental weights readily available. The weights used at the at the prescribed increments are specific to the competitors division, each round following the pattern of: 5 Deadlifts then 3 Cleans followed by 1 Jerk:
Advanced Division Intermediate Division
Men | Women Men | Women
5 Rounds at 135 lbs | 95 lbs 95 lbs | 65 lbs
4 Rounds at 155 lbs | 105 lbs 105 lbs | 75 lbs
3 Rounds at 185 lbs | 130 lbs 115 lbs | 80 lbs
2 Rounds at 205 lbs | 145 lbs 135 lbs | 95 lbs
AMRAP at 225 lbs | 155 lbs 155 lbs | 105 lbs
This is to say that Competitors start at the first weight listed for their division: for example, Advanced Men begin with 135 lbs loaded on the barbell and complete 5 rounds of the pattern:
Once this competitor completes 5 Rounds of this pattern with the 135 lb barbell, the competitor will load the additional weight, in this case advancing the barbell to 155 lbs, and then complete 4 rounds of the same pattern at the second weight. After completing four rounds at the second weight the competitor will advance to the third weight and complete 3 rounds. After completing 3 rounds at the third weight they will advance to the fourth weight and complete 2 rounds. After completing 2 rounds at the fourth weight the competitor will advance to their fifth, and final weight and complete as many repetitions as possible before the 15:00 timer expires.
After completing the specified amount of rounds at each specific weight the competitor is required to advance to the next weight in order to continue earning repetitions. The competitor must change their own weight AND use clips on their barbell. The competitor will make it is far as they are able through the sequence of rounds and weight increments as the timer allows. At the end of the 15:00 time frame the competitors score is the amount of repetitions completed.
Each round consists of 9 repetitions.
Completing the sequence at the first weight = 5 Rounds / 45 total Repetitions
Completing the sequence of the second weight = 9 Rounds / 81 total Repetitions
Completing the sequence of the third weight = 12 Rounds / 108 total Repetitions
Completing the sequence of the fourth weight = 14 Rounds / 126 total Repetitions
Advanced Competitors: Advanced Competitors are required to perform Squat Cleans, receiving the clean in a full squat.
Intermediate Competitors: Intermediate competitors may choose to perform Power Cleans instead of Squat Cleans.
The Clean is a barbell movement requiring the competitor to bring the bar from the ground to a front rack position, with the legs at full extension while the elbows reach a point in front of the barbell. The barbell must start on the ground for each repetition, and the competitor can achieve a front rack position by catching the load in either a power (partial squat, or full squat movement). A repetition will be counted once the barbell reaches the position described and is stable.
Common faults that may result in a non-counted rep include: pausing at the hips (hang position) before performing the ‘clean’ portion of the movement; the weight not clearly stabilized in the front-rack position; and finally, hips or knees are not clearly locked out when the weight is received in the front rack at the completion of the movement.
The Deadlift starts with a loaded barbell resting on the ground. The competitor’s feet must be hip-width apart, hands gripping the barbell outside their knees. The competitor will lift the weight from the ground, extending their hips and legs, with the shoulders back, behind the barbell (as opposed to slouched, in front of the barbell). If performing consecutive repetitions the competitor may not forcefully return the barbell to the ground as to “bounce” the weight into the start of the next repetition.
Common faults that may result in a non-counted repetition for Deadlift include: not reaching full extension of hips and legs; not extending to achieve shoulders behind the barbell; bouncing the barbell into a consecutive repetition; or establishing a foot placement wider than the competitors grip; or placing the arms and feet in any way other than required.
The Jerk is a barbell movement requiring the competitor to bring the bar from the front rack position to a stabilized overhead position with the legs and arms at full extension (elbows, knees, and hips at lock-out). The competitor can achieve a front rack position by whatever means they choose OR that are required by the specific workout. The athlete can bring the load from shoulder to overhead in any of the following ways; push jerk, power jerk, squat jerk or split jerk. A repetition will be counted once the barbell reaches clear stabilization overhead.
Common faults that may result in a non-counted rep include: the competitor not returning their feet underneath them upon completion of the overhead lockout; the weight not clearly locked out in the overhead position; and finally, if the arms, hips or knees are not clearly locked out when the weight is overhead at the completion of the movement.
Video Submission Standards
For competitors that are submitting a video of their effort the competitor must begin the video by stating their name and the name of the competition workout(s) they are completing. Next, the competitor must show all weights and measurements, clearly demonstrating and focusing on the numeric value so the specific weight and measurement can be clearly viewed.
The athlete and any implements, which in these videos will require a barbell, with clips, loaded specific to their division as well as have the extra weights readily available for “Lift Ticket.” A timer that is counting up or down to/from 15:00 must be visible at all times throughout. The competitor is required to load all new weights without assistance and any additional weights need to stay in frame throughout the recording. It is recommended to utilize an application (such as WeTime) that has a built-in timer on the video interface. The video recording may not be edited and must be one continuous recording. It is recommended that the video recording device be mounted as opposed to having an individual moving it around and possibly causing and required implement, or the competitor to come out of the frame during the video which may render the video invalid for scoring purposes.
If any of these standards are not met the video is subject to being invalidated. An invalidated video may result in a score not qualifying for a prize, so it is crucial that these standards are met. If you have any additional questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org prior to attempting this workout to ensure all required standards are met.
