Download the workout description and scorecard for your division:
Prior to starting, athletes must set up the competition area as shown in the floor plan.
This event begins with the barbell in the rack. Teams will have 20 minutes from their declared start time to find a 4-rep-max front squat for each athlete. Within the 20-minute window, athletes may make as many or as few attempts as they like.
All athletes will use the same 45-lb. bar. Only one rack can be used. Teammates may load the bar for each other. Teammates may help each other re-rack the bar in the event of a failed lift.
Any increases in loading must be at least 1 lb.
Each athlete’s score will be the load (in lb.) of their heaviest successful set. The team’s score will be the sum of the athletes’ heaviest sets.
There will be no tiebreak for this event.
- Barbell, 45 lb.
- Bumper plates*
- Collars, one set
- One squat rack

*The official weight must be recorded in pounds.
If converting kilograms to pounds, round up to the nearest pound. If lifting in pounds, only whole pound change plates may be used. Collars cannot be included in the weight.
For each workout, be sure the team 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.

1 of 2Athletes must place collars on the outside of the plates before beginning the lift. Athletes MUST declare the load they are attempting before starting to lift. The bar rests on the athlete’s shoulders and their elbows are in front of the bar. The athlete’s hip crease must clearly pass below the top of the knees in the bottom position.2 of 2The rep is credited when: the athlete’s hips and knees are fully extended; the bar is resting on the athlete’s shoulders and their elbows are in front of the bar; and the athlete’s feet are in line with one another when the athlete is viewed from profile. All four reps must be successfully completed before the athlete re-racks or drops the bar. Athletes may use knee sleeves, but wraps are NOT permitted. After finishing the final lift, remove and film all plates used on the bar to verify loading.
