  • Notes

    Prior to starting the workout, set up the floor plan as shown. Always return behind the line furthest from the barbell during the rest periods.

    This workout begins with the athlete standing on the far side of the line furthest away from the barbell. At “3, 2, 1 … go,” the athlete may move to the barbell and complete 10 snatches. After the 10th snatch, a mandatory 1-minute rest period begins. The event time does not stop during the rest period. During the rest period, athletes may have assistance loading the barbell with the next weight OR they may use a prestaged barbell set to the appropriate weight.

    Athletes must remain behind the start line until the rest period is over. Then, they may move to the barbell and complete 10 snatches at the second weight. They will repeat this sequence for the third weight as well. After the third rest period, the athlete will perform as many reps as possible with the final weight in the time remaining. Time stops at 10 minutes.

    The athlete’s score will be the total number of repetitions completed before the 10-minute time cap. 

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

    Tie Break

    Record the time after each successfully completed set of snatches. In the event of a tie on total repetitions, the athlete who was fastest in finishing the 10 snatches at the previous weight will be ranked higher. 


    • Barbell, 35/45 lb.

    • Bumper plates*

    • Collars

    • Tape to mark the floor

    *The official weight is in pounds. For your convenience, the minimum acceptable weights in kilograms are 38 kg (85 lb.), 56 kg (125 lb.), 61 kg (135 lb.), 65 kg (145 lb.), 75 kg (165 lb.), 83 kg (185 lb.), 102 kg (225 lb.), and 111 kg (245 lb.). 

    Note: Athletes may use multiple bars prestaged to the appropriate weights OR they may receive assistance changing the weights during the rest period.

    • If using multiple barbells, be sure to clearly film ALL weights on ALL barbells.

    • If using a single barbell, be sure to clearly film ALL weights that will be used (preferably in the order they will be added to the barbell).

    For each workout, be sure the athlete 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.
