Murph takes place Friday, with a 1-rep-max clean and jerk Saturday.

The clean and jerk is back.

Saturday evening, individuals will gather in the Tennis Stadium for a 1-rep-max clean and jerk. 

Lifting one at a time, athletes will have 30 seconds to establish a 1-rep-max lift. Each athlete is allowed two clean-and-jerk attempts. 

But before all of that takes place, individuals need to take on the well-known Hero workout Murph. While they already knew they would have to complete the event, they didn’t know when they would have to do it—until now. 

Murph will be the first event for individuals Friday in the Soccer Stadium and the grounds of the StubHub Center. 

Visit the Games events page for details on all released events.

All individual events will be streamed to ESPN3 for U.S. viewers and onto YouTube for everyone else. A General Admission wristband will give fans access to the Sandbag 2015 event Wednesday afternoon in the Tennis Stadium. GA wristbands are on sale online and at the StubHub Center box office.
