Events

Dumbbell Clean and Press

60 seconds. Competitor must wait for down commands and the dumbbell must touch the ground in between reps (tap & go is fine). Competitor may use two hands to clean, but must remove 2nd hand before starting the press. No dropping of the dumbbell will be allowed.
We will tentatively be using a 10″ Texas Power Concepts Cylindrical Dumbbell for women and a 12″ Beast Metals Cylindrical Dumbbell for men.

Mouser Block Carry / Frame Medley

90 seconds. Competitor will carry a Mouser Block 60’ and place upright on a mat. The block can be standing up on the short or long side, but it cannot be flat on the ground (on the feet, logo facing up or down) and must be entirely on the mat. Competitor will carry the frame back 60’ – time will stop when the front of the frame crossed the line. Block cannot be rested on belt or shouldered.
Frame brand, pick height, handle diameter, etc to be determined depending on Nationals frame.

4″ Deficit Axle Deadlift

60 seconds. Competitor cannot strap in until the time starts. There will be up and down commands. No deadlift suits.
Using Rogue or Titan Axles. Platform will tentatively be 3 feet wide.

Yoke Conan’s Carry

60’ for time, no drops. Yoke will be carried Conan/Zercher style. Time stops when the front of the yoke crosses. Competitor will get a distance if the course is not completed.
Using Rogue yokes.

Stone to Shoulder

60 seconds. Competitor must lift stone from ground, hold on shoulder (with 2nd hand off of stone) and wait for down command. Stone cannot be dropped from shoulder and must be controlled. Spray tacky is allowed – traditional tacky is not.
Stone type (SOS or concrete stone) and diameter to be determined.
