TEAM EVENT 1 – 2014
15-15, 15-15, 12-12, 12-12, 9-9, 9-9 reps for time of:
Clean and jerks, 135 / 95 lb.
Time cap: 16 minutes
This event begins with all six teammates on the starting mat. At the call of “3-2-1 … Go!” the first male enters and completes 15 muscle-ups. He then moves to the barbell and starts to perform 15 clean and jerks, at which point the first female will enter and start her 15 muscle-ups. When the first male completes his 15 clean and jerks he advances his barbell to the 12-rep station, then steps onto the finish mat. Once the first female has completed her 15 muscle-ups and the first male has moved to the finish mat, she will proceed to her barbell for 15 clean and jerks, and the second male enters to begin his 12 muscle-ups. The team will move through in this fashion until the third female completes her 9thclean and jerk and moves to the finish mat.
The team’s score is its total time.
If any athlete has 3 failed muscle-up attempts, their team will be time-capped for the event and receive a penalty for the athlete’s uncompleted muscle-ups. The athlete must also move forward to the clean and jerks. If any athlete has 3 failed clean and jerk attempts, their team will be time-capped for the event and receive a penalty for the uncompleted clean and jerks. In both cases, the athlete must advance and the remaining athletes will perform their work to avoid additional penalty points.
In the muscle-up, you 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 yourself above the rings. Kipping the muscle-up is acceptable, but swings or rolls to support are not permitted. If consecutive kipping muscle-ups are performed, a change of direction below the rings is required.
If the heels rise above the bottom of the rings during the kip, it is a no rep. Rings will be set at a fixed height of and 88 inches from the top of the mat to the bottom of the rings for all team members. Athletes may not adjust the height of the rings
Clean and Jerk
The barbell begins on the ground and must be cleaned to the shoulders and then jerked overhead. No snatching. Touch-and-go is permitted. No bouncing. 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 feet must be brought back together if a split-style lift is used.
Athletes must perform their repetitions facing the barbell not in use.
