Axle Deadlift for Reps

Athlete will start standing at the axle, but may not touch the implement or strap in until the time starts. Competitor must get a down command for the lift to count, but (plot twist!) there will be no UP commands. The weight on both sides of the axle must touch the ground, but competitors may touch-and-go, so bounce to your little hearts’ desires.

Max Weight Keg over Bar

Women will load to a 48” bar, men to a 52” bar. Last-man-standing format. Each competitor will be offered an opportunity to attempt each, and may step in or out as they want. Once a competitor fails a weight (the 30 seconds lapses without a successful load), they are out and may not make another attempt.
