Regional
& Qualifier
Events

Eight regional competitions took place over three weekends in May, 2016.

Weekend 1: May 13 - 15: California, South, Pacific 

Weekend 2: May 20 - 22: West, Atlantic 

Weekend 3: May 27 - 29: Central, Meridian, East 

Scoring at the regionals was the same as at the Games. Every event was worth up to 100 points, and athletes earned points based on their finish (see chart). At the end of the weekend, the athlete with the most points was the winner. Athletes who tied received the same number of points. If an athlete failed to complete an event within the time cap (for timed events), his or her score was capped and received a 1-second penalty for each rep not completed,

Some events will have a minimum work requirement. For those events, if an athlete failed to meet the minimum work requirement, they would not be eligible to move on to the next event.

  • Event 1

    • For the snatch, the athlete must bring the bar from the ground to the overhead position in one smooth motion. At the top, the arms, hips and knees must be fully locked out with the bar directly over the middle of the athlete's body and the feet in line under the body. No part of the body other than the feet may touch the ground during the execution of the lift. A muscle snatch, power snatch, squat snatch or split snatch may be used. This is NOT a ground-to-overhead any way. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then lifted overhead, is a no rep.
    • Snatch Finish Position

    The snatch weight must be submitted in pounds.

    The barbell must be loaded evenly on both sides. The smallest acceptable weight increment is 1 lb. Plates smaller than 0.5 lb. may not be used. Weight submissions will not include fractions of a pound. If when converting from kilos to pounds the weight has a decimal, round down to the nearest pound.

    15-kg barbells will be considered 35 lb., and 20-kg barbells will be considered 45 lb.

    Collars used to hold the weight plates on the bar will NOT be included in the total weight.

    Video Submission Standards 

    Prior to lifting, the athlete must state to the camera how much weight is on the barbell and say the code word “Lunar Module.” Filming of the barbell and plates used, as well as the athlete weigh-in, may be done before or after the lift. However, all video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Shoot the video from an angle so the athlete can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards for the lift.

    Calculating the Weight

    The clean and jerk weight must be submitted in pounds. The smallest acceptable weight increment is 1 lb. (This applies to fractional plates, minimum weight is 0.5 lb. per plate, as well as to weight conversions. Weight submissions will not include fractions of a pound. If when converting from kilos to pounds the weight has a decimal, round down to the nearest pound.) 15-kg barbells will be considered 35 lb., and 20-kg barbells will be considered 45 lb. Collars used to hold the weight plates on the bar will NOT be included in the total weight.

  • Event 2

    • This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count.
    • In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. At the start of each rep, the arms must be fully extended, and the feet must be off the ground and brought back behind the bar and behind the body. Both feet must come into contact with the bar at the same time, inside the hands.
    • Top of the Toes-to-Bar
    • This is a traditional deadlift with the hands outside the knees. Sumo deadlifts are not allowed. Starting at the floor, the barbell is lifted until the hips and knees reach full extension with the head and shoulders behind the bar. The arms must be straight throughout. No bouncing.
    • Top of the Deadlift
    • Athletes must be facing the box at the start of each rep. The athlete must jump onto the box using a two-foot takeoff, land on top of the box using a two-foot landing, then get down from the box on the opposite side to begin the next rep. There is no requirement to stand tall while on top of the box, and athletes may step down or jump down when returning to the ground. Each rep is counted when the athlete lands on the opposite side of the box. A running start is permitted as long as a two-foot takeoff is used. Lateral jumps are not allowed. Only the athlete's feet may touch the box. In addition to the height requirement, each box must have a top that is at least 15-by-15 inches.
    • Top of the Box Jump
    • Box Jump-Over
    • Box Jump-Over Finish Position
    • For the scaled workout, this is the standard single-under in which the rope passes under the feet once for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count.
    • For the scaled workout, each rep of the sit-up begins with the athlete’s shoulder blades in contact with the floor, their knees bent with their feet anchored, and their hands touching the floor above their head. At the top, the athlete will raise their torso so that their chest is upright and their hands touch their toes or the dumbbells. AbMats are permitted.
    • Sit-up Finish Position
    • For the scaled workout, the athlete must jump or step onto the box, stand on top of the box with both feet, then get down from the box on the opposite side to begin the next rep. There is no requirement to stand tall while on top of the box, and athletes may step down or jump down when returning to the ground. Each rep is counted when the athlete lands on the opposite side of the box. Only the athlete's feet may touch the box. In addition to the height requirement, each box must have a top that is at least 15-by-15 inches.
    • Top of the Step-up
    • Stepping Off the Box
    • Step-up Finish Position

    At the call of "3, 2, 1 ... go," the first male athlete will begin the double-unders. He will complete 100 double-unders, 25 toes-to-bars, 25 deadlifts and 50 box jump overs before tagging the first female athlete to begin her double-unders. After she completes all four movements, she will tag the next male athlete, and then he will tag the next female athlete after he finishes the movements. Time will stop when the fourth athlete completes the last box jump over.

    The team’s score is its total time. Time should also be marked at the points when each athlete completes their box jump overs, as these will be displayed as a split time. If the workout is not completed within the time cap, record the total number of repetitions completed up to that point, as that will be used as the team’s score.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting, film the barbells, plates and boxes to be used so the loads and measurements (height of box as well as dimensions of top) can be seen clearly. All video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. An additional person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Event 2

    • During the clean, the barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted from the ground to the shoulders in one motion. During the jerk, the barbell must be lifted from the front rack position to overhead. The rep is counted when the barbell is fully locked out overhead directly over the middle of the athlete’s body, with the arms, hips, and knees extended, and the feet in line under the body. No part of the body other than the feet may touch the ground during the execution of the lift.
    • A muscle clean, power clean, split clean, or squat clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the rack position on the shoulders. Once racked, a press, push press, split jerk, or push jerk may be used to lock the barbell out overhead. The barbell must pass through the front-rack position before going overhead; snatching is not permitted.
    • Clean and Jerk Finish Position

    The clean and jerk weight must be submitted in pounds.

    The barbell must be loaded evenly on both sides. The smallest acceptable weight increment is 1 lb. Plates smaller than 0.5 lb. may not be used. Weight submissions will not include fractions of a pound. If when converting from kilos to pounds the weight has a decimal, round down to the nearest pound.

    15-kg barbells will be considered 35 lb., and 20-kg barbells will be considered 45 lb.

    Collars used to hold the weight plates on the bar will NOT be included in the total weight.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to lifting, the athlete must state to the camera how much weight is on the barbell and say the code word “Lunar Module.” Filming of the barbell and plates used, as well as the athlete weigh-in, may be done before or after the lift. However, all video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance.

Collars used to hold the weight plates on the bar will NOT be included in the total weight.

  • Event 3

    • This is a standard chin-over-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom with the feet off the ground. At the top the chin must break the horizontal plane of the bar.
    • Pull-up Finish Position
    • The monitor must be set to zero at the beginning of each row. The athlete or the judge may reset the monitor. The athlete must stay seated with their hands on the handle until the monitor reads 50 calories.
    • The hip crease must be below the top of the knee at the bottom. A full squat snatch is permitted but not required to start the movement if standard depth is achieved. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended and the bar directly over the middle of the body. The athlete may not use a rack.
    • Overhead Squat Start and Finish Position
    • Every rep must begin with both feet on the floor. The rep finishes with the athlete standing with the hips and knees fully extended while in control on top of the box. Rx’d athletes must use a two-foot takeoff and a two-foot landing. Scaled athletes may jump up or step up onto the box. Rx’d and scaled athletes may jump down or step down as long as they start each rep with both feet on the ground and finish each rep with both feet on the box.
    • Box Jump Finish Position
    • For the jumping pull-up (scaled only), the pull-up bar should be set up so it is at least 6 inches above the top of the athlete’s head when standing tall. At the bottom, the athlete must lower themselves so their arms are fully extended. At the top the chin must break the horizontal plane of the bar.
    • Start of the Jumping Pull-up
    • Jumping Pull-up Finish Position

    At the call of “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete will begin the pull-ups. After finishing 25 reps, the athlete will move to the rower and pull until 50 calories are complete. The athlete will then perform 100 overhead squats followed by 50 box jumps before returning to the pull-up bar and completing 25 pull-ups. The next round begins with 25 more pull-ups.

    The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed within the 15-minute time cap.

    Immediately before or after the athlete’s performance of the event, the athlete must weigh in either with a judge or on video. See the Liftoff rulebook for weigh-in protocol.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting, the athlete must state to the camera the code word “Lunar Module” and film the barbell to be used so the loads and measurements (height of box, jumping pull-up height) can be seen clearly. Filming the athlete weigh-in may be done before or after the workout. However, all video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. A second person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Event 3

    • The monitor must be set to zero at the beginning of the workout. The first male athlete may not grab the rower handle until time starts. The total calories rowed will be determined by the number of calories displayed on the monitor at the end of the 10-minute interval. Be sure to record the number prior to the monitor shutting off. When switching, partners must slap hands prior to the next athlete beginning to row. Partners may assist each other getting on and off the rower, but only one athlete may be rowing at one time.
    • Each rep begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead. A shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used as long as the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees fully extend, the bar finishes directly over the middle of the body and the feet are brought back in line underneath the body. When switching, partners must slap hands prior to the next athlete picking up the barbell. Using a rack is not permitted.
    • Push Press Finish Position

    At the call of "3, 2, 1 ... go," one male athlete will begin the row for calories. In the first 5-minute interval, the male athletes, sharing one rower, will accumulate as many calories as possible and may trade off by tagging each other in. At the end of the 5-minute interval, the male athletes will tag the female pair in before transitioning to the push presses. The female athletes will row in the same manner as the men. The females do NOT need to reset the rower, as the total calories rowed by all four athletes will be recorded. During the push presses, the male athletes, sharing one barbell, will accumulate as many reps as possible and may trade off by tagging. At the end of the second 5-minute interval, the male athletes will be done working once they tag the females into the push press. The female athletes will begin push presses on their barbell, accumulating reps in the same manner as the men.

    The workout ends at 15 minutes and the team’s score will be the sum of the number of calories and repetitions accumulated by all four team members.

    Teams having their workouts validated at an affiliate must use a judge. In this workout, where multiple athletes are completing reps simultaneously, teams should use additional judges as needed to ensure all standards are met.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting, film the barbells and plates to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. Also, show the monitor on the rower before and at the 10 minute mark, so that it can be seen at “0 calories” prior to starting and displays the total calories rowed upon completion. All video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. An additional person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Event 4

    • Each repetition must start from the hang. Therefore, each repetition must be taken from the floor to a deadlift lockout (hips and knees fully extended, and head and shoulders behind the bar) before re-dipping to initiate the hang clean. Once the bar has been deadlifted, re-dipping below the top of the knee is not permitted. A hang squat clean is not permitted. The athlete must receive the barbell in a power position, with the crease of the hip above the top of the knee. Each repetition finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended. Power cleaning the barbell from the ground in one continuous motion is not permitted. Men must use the men’s bar and women must use the women’s bar.
    • Hang Power Clean Finish Position

    The team has 10 minutes to establish each athlete’s 1-rep-max hang power clean.

    At the call of "3, 2, 1 ... go," the team may load the two empty barbells for the first lifters (one male and one female). Prior to each lift, the performing athlete must face the camera and state the weight they are about to attempt. The athlete may then proceed with their hang power clean attempt. Only one athlete can work at a time. Each athlete may make multiple attempts. However, all four teammates must establish their 1-rep max within the same 10-minute period.

    Note: The minimum weight change is 5 lb.; no fractional plates are allowed. Clips must be used.

    The team’s score is the sum of the four athletes’ heaviest lifts.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting, film the barbells and plates to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. An additional person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Event 5

    • In the wall-ball shot, the medicine ball must be taken from the bottom of a squat, hip crease below the knee, and thrown to hit the specified target. The center of the ball must hit the target at or above the specified height. If the ball hits low or does not hit the target, it is a "no rep." If the ball drops from the top, it cannot be caught off the bounce to begin the next rep. The ball must settle on the ground before being picked up for the next rep.
    • The barbell will be loaded unevenly, with more weight on the men's side, and less weight on the women's side. Athletes must lift on their designated sides. The deadlift begins with the barbell on the ground and finishes when the athletes stand the weight to full extension of the knees and hips, with their heads and shoulders behind the bar at the top of the movement. The same standard applies to the static hold; the athletes must have their hips and knees fully extended and heads and shoulders behind the bar. The athletes may choose any grip they like, but their feet must be inside their hands, and they may not cross their arm over their partner’s arm. No sumo stances are permitted. Once the athletes have achieved lockout, they may drop the barbell from the top. Any repetition that is bounced will not count. The partners cannot face opposite directions when completing the deadlifts or deadlift static holds; both lifting partners must stand on the same side of the barbell.
    • This movement begins at the top of a handstand with the legs straight, arms fully locked out, heels on the wall, hips open and the body in line with the arms. The hands must be placed within the clearly marked area. The marked area will be a 36-inch wide, 24-inch deep box, and the palm of the hand must remain completely within the area (fingers may extend out of the box). At the bottom of each rep, the head must touch the ground. At the top of each rep, the athlete returns to the start position with legs straight, arms fully locked out, heels on the wall, hips open and the body in line with the arms. Kipping is allowed. The feet must stay within the width of the marked area for the entire rep.
    • Bottom of the Handstand Push-up
    • A straight body position must be maintained throughout. No snaking, sagging or pushing up from the knees. The elbows and shoulders must be locked out at the top with the feet no wider than shoulder width. At the bottom, the chest (nipple-line or above) must touch the floor and the hands must be lifted.
    • Bottom of the Hand-Release Push-up

    At the call of "3, 2, 1…go," one male/female pair will begin the static deadlift hold while the other two athletes begin the wall-ball shots. Two athletes may work on the wall-ball shots at the same time and do not need to be synchronized for the reps to count. All four athletes can trade off to complete the wall balls in any way they choose, but a male/female pair must maintain a static deadlift hold for the reps to count. If the pair in the static hold stops the hold at any time, the other athletes must stop performing wall-ball shots and additional reps will not be counted until a male/female pair re-establishes the static deadlift hold. Athletes must tag each other in their transitions from the static hold to the wall ball.

    During the partner deadlifts, one male/female pair works while the other pair rests. The pairs may accumulate reps however they choose. Once the partner deadlifts are complete, one male/female pair will begin the handstand push-ups while the other pair performs a deadlift hold. As with the wall-ball shots, two athletes may work on the handstand push-ups at the same time, unsynchronized. All four athletes can trade off to complete the handstand push-ups however they choose, but a male/female pair must maintain a static deadlift hold for the reps to count. If the pair in the static hold stops the hold at any time, the other athletes must stop performing handstand push-ups, and additional reps will not be counted until a male/female pair re-establishes the static deadlift hold. Athletes must tag each other in their transitions from the static hold to the handstand push-up.

    Time stops when the last rep of the handstand push-up is completed. The team’s score is its total time. If the workout is not completed within the time cap, record the total number of repetitions completed up to that point, as that will be used as the team’s score.

    Teams having their workouts validated at an affiliate must use a judge. In this workout, where multiple athletes are completing reps simultaneously, teams should use additional judges as needed to ensure all standards are met.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting, film the barbell and plates to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. Also film the measuring of the handstand push-up box, the height of the wall-ball target, as well as the weight of the ball, so the loads and height can be seen clearly. All video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. An additional person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Event 6

    • In the muscle-up, the athlete must begin with, or pass through, a hang below the rings with arms fully extended (with or without a 'false grip') and the feet off the ground. At the top, the elbows must be fully locked out while supporting the athlete above the rings. Athletes must pass through some portion of a dip to lockout over the rings. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but swings or rolls to support are not permitted. If the heels rise above the bottom of the rings during the kip, the rep will not count. If consecutive kipping muscle-ups are performed, a change of direction below the rings is required.
    • Muscle-up Finish Position
    • This is a standard chest-to-bar pull-up. Dead hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended and feet off the ground at the bottom. At the top, the chest must clearly come into contact with the bar below the collarbone. As indicated above, a MF pair will be assigned to a specific pull-up bar or section of pull-up bar (if a single, longer pull-up bar is used). Athletes may only perform reps on their assigned pull-up bar or pull-up bar section. Two athletes may work at a time, and there is no need for synchronization.
    • Chest-to-Bar Pull-up Finish Position

    Athletes will use two sets of gymnastics rings to accumulate as many muscle-ups as possible in 10 minutes. A male/female pair will be assigned to a set of rings (or pull-up bar for scaled). Athletes may only perform reps on their assigned rings. At the call of At the call of "3, 2, 1…go," each pair can begin accumulating muscle-ups. Athletes may perform as many or as few muscle-ups as they’d like before switching with the other athlete in their pair. Two athletes may work at a time, and there is no need for synchronization.

    The team's score will be the total number of reps accumulated by all four athletes at the end of 10 minutes.

    Teams having their workouts validated at an affiliate must use a judge. In this workout, where multiple athletes are completing reps simultaneously, teams should use additional judges as needed to ensure all standards are met.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.

  • Event 7

    • In the clean and jerk the bar must travel from the ground to the shoulders, then from the shoulders to overhead. A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used to get the bar to the shoulders, and a shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used to get the weight overhead. The barbell begins on the ground. The barbell must finish at full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, the feet in line, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.
    • Clean and Jerk Finish Position
    • In the toes-to-bar, the athletes must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. At the start of each rep the arms must be fully extended with the feet off the ground and the feet brought back behind the bar and behind the body. The rep is credited when both feet come into contact with the bar at the same time inside the hands. For a synchronized toes-to-bar, both athletes’ feet must touch the bar at the same time.
    • Toes-to-Bar Finish Position
    • In the hanging knee raise, the athletes must go from a full hang to having their knees above the height of their hips. At the start of each rep the arms must be fully extended with the feet off the ground and the feet brought back behind the bar and behind the body. The rep is credited when the knees pass above the height of the hips. For a synchronized knee raise, both athletes’ knees must be above the height of their hips at the same time.
    • Hanging Knee Raise Finish Position

    At the call of "3, 2, 1…go," the first male/female pair will begin their 5 clean and jerks. The athletes can complete the lifts at the same time, but there is no need to synchronize. After each athlete completes five repetitions with their barbell, they will move to the pull-up bar to complete 10 synchronized toes-to-bars. After all 10 reps are complete, they will tag in the other pair who will proceed through the two movements in the same manner. The two pairs will continue to alternate in this manner, accumulating as many reps as possible before the 20-minute time cap.

    The team's score is the total number of repetitions completed within the time cap.

    Teams having their workouts validated at an affiliate must use a judge. In this workout, where multiple athletes are completing reps simultaneously, teams should use additional judges as needed to ensure all standards are met.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.

    Video Submission Standards

    Prior to starting, film the barbells and plates to be used so the loads can be seen clearly. All video submissions must be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. An additional person with a stopwatch should be in the frame throughout the entire workout. Shoot the video from an angle so all exercises can be clearly seen meeting the movement standards.

  • Event 8

    • This is the standard double-under in which the rope passes under the feet twice for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count. For the scaled division, this is the standard single-under in which the rope passes under the feet once for each jump. The rope must spin forward for the rep to count.
    • The barbell begins on the ground and must be lifted overhead in one smooth motion. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, the feet in line, and the bar directly over the middle of the body. A power snatch, muscle snatch, split snatch, or squat snatch is permitted, so long as all requirements are met. No part of the body other than the feet may touch the ground during the repetition. This is not a ground-to-overhead any way. A clean and jerk, where the bar is lifted to the shoulders and then lifted overhead is a "no rep." Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing or dropping and catching the barbell on the rebound. Once dropped, the barbell must settle on the ground before the athlete begins the next repetition. For divisions that use an empty barbell, or if plates smaller in diameter than standard bumper plates are used, each repetition must begin with the barbell clearly below the knees.
    • Power Snatch Finish Position

    This is a 24-minute workout, with the men working for 12 minutes and the women working for 12 minutes immediately after.

    At the call of "3, 2, 1…go," the first male athlete will begin his 30 double-unders and 15 power snatches. After he finishes his final rep of the power snatches, he will tag in the second male athlete, who will then begin to work through his double-unders and power snatches. The pair will continue to trade off, accumulating as many reps as possible in the 12-minute window. At the end of the 12 minutes, the male athletes will stop working and the first female athlete will begin. When the women begin, they will start at the beginning of the round, not where the men left off. The female pair will trade off and accumulate max reps during their 12-minute interval in the same manner.

    The team's score is the total reps completed by the male pair, plus the total reps completed by the female pair.

    For each workout, be sure the team has adequate space to safely complete the workout. Clear the area of all extra equipment, people or other obstructions. Any team 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.
