  • Notes

    This event begins with the barbell on the ground. You will have 20 minutes from your declared start time to find a 3-rep-max deadlift. Within the 20-minute window, you may make as many or as few attempts as you’d like. 

    You must declare the load you are attempting before starting to lift. After finishing the final successful lift, remove and film all plates used on the bar to verify the loading. 

    Your score will be the load (in lb.) of your heaviest successful set. There is no tiebreak for this event. 

    Any increases in loading must be at least 1 lb. 

    After the event is complete, walk to the camera and state the password BEFORE moving or turning off the camera.
