Individual Event 1
1-rep-max hang squat snatch
Time cap: 6 minutes
For this event, athletes will have three (3) attempts to establish their heaviest 1-rep hang squat snatch. At the call of "3-2-1 … Go!" athletes will have 2 minutes to load their barbell and attempt their first lift. They will not be allowed to lift again until after the 2-minute mark. They may not attempt their final lift until after the 4-minute mark, and the lift must be completed before the 6-minute mark.
Each athlete will begin with an empty barbell and a stack of plates. It will be the athlete’s responsibility to load the bar for each lift and declare the weight to the judge prior to lifting. Athletes may not decrease the weight after a failed attempt. The smallest weight increment permitted will be 5 lb. for both men and women.
After the 6 minutes is up, athletes will have 2 minutes to transition to Event 2.
Individual Event 2
Max distance handstand walk
Time cap: 3 minutes
Athletes will begin at the starting line and will walk as far as possible on their hands without their feet touching the ground. If the athlete kicks up to their hands and travels fewer than 10 feet this will be considered a “false start,” and they may re-attempt from the starting line. Each athlete will be allowed two “false starts.” If the athlete makes it the full 120 feet to the other side of the of the stadium, they may come down to their feet, kick back up in the opposite direction, and start traveling back toward the start line.
Athletes will begin this event 2 minutes after completing Event 1.
