For each workout, be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete all the movements. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions.
Any athlete who in any way alters the equipment or movements described in this document or shown in the workout standards video may be disqualified from the competition.
Workout Flow and Movement Standards
The following standards must be met.
With the athlete lying down, chest and thighs touching the ground, legs fully extended, and feet together and touching the wall, mark a tape line at the top of the athlete’s shoulder.
The edge of the tape that is closest to the wall must be in line with the shoulder.
This first line will be the start and finish line for each repetition.
Tape a second line that leaves 10 inches of space between the tape’s far edge and the wall.
This workout begins with the athlete standing tall and behind their barbell.
After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete may begin their deadlifts.
Wall Walks Standards
Every rep begins and ends with the athlete lying down, with their chest, feet, and thighs touching the ground.
At the start and finish of each rep, both hands must touch the first tape line (fingers touching is OK)
Both feet must be touching the ground at the beginning and end of each rep.
Both hands must remain on the tape until both feet are on the wall and no longer touching the ground.
At the top of the movement, both hands must be touching the 10-inch tape mark before the athlete can descend.
Any part of the hand may touch the tape line.
On the descent, the feet must remain on the wall until both hands are touching the first line.
The rep is credited when the athlete returns to the starting position, with both hands touching the first line and their chest, thighs, and feet touching the ground.
Any part of the hand may make contact with the tape line.
Both feet must be touching the ground before starting the next rep.
This is a traditional deadlift with the hands outside the knees. Sumo deadlifts are not allowed.
Starting with the barbell on the floor, the athlete lifts the bar until the hips and knees reach full extension, and the head and shoulders are behind the bar. The arms must be straight throughout. No bouncing.
