The following standards are for some of the possible movements that may or may not show up at FitoberFest 2012- It is possible that something could come up that is not on this list, it is also possible that 2 of these movements could be combined (ex snatch to overhead walking lunge, or clean and jerk). The heats will be released 5 days before the competition and the final WODS will be released on October 5th.
The ball must be picked up off of the ground to initiate the first rep, stood up to full extension with knees and hips fully open, and then taken to the bottom of a squat with hip crease below knee, and thrown to hit the 10-foot target. If the ball hits low or does not hit the target, it is no rep. If the ball is not caught between reps, it must come to a full stop on the ground. Catching the ball bouncing off the floor is not permitted.
In the toes-to-bar, the athlete must go from a full hang to having the toes touch the pull-up bar. Both feet must touch the bar together. The arms and hips must be fully extended at the bottom and the feet must be brought back to behind the bar, not out front.
In the muscle-up, the athlete must pass from a hang below the rings to support above. At the bottom, the arms must come to a full lock out with the feet off the ground. At the top, the elbows must fully lock out while supporting yourself above the rings. A kipping muscle-up is allowed, but the heels may not raise above the height of the rings. Swings or rolls to support are not permitted (if the athlete is kipping, a change of direction under the rings is required).
These are standard double-unders, with the rope passing twice around the body in a forward motion with each jump. Swinging the rope backward is not permitted. For the rep to count, the rope must clear the feet twice. Attempts where the rope catches before clearing twice do not count. Athletes are permitted to use their own ropes.
In the snatch, the barbell goes directly from the ground to overhead in one motion without stopping at the shoulders or touching the body anywhere above the hips. This can be a muscle snatch, a power snatch, a squat snatch or a split snatch. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, the bar directly over the heels and the feet together- the standard for a single arm snatch will be exactly the same with the exception that the arm supporting the load must be locked out directly overhead in alignment with the torso.
In the overhead squat, the barbell must be kept overhead with the arms locked. At the bottom, the crease of the hips must pass below the height of the kneecap. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell in control and over the heels. A full squat snatch will count as a repetition as long as all the above requirements are met.
This is a standard pull-up. Dead-hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are all allowed, as long as all the requirements are met. At the bottom, the arms must be fully extended. At the top, the chin must clearly break the horizontal plane of the bar.
Chest to Bar Pull-Up:
The chest must clearly make contact with the bar at or below the height of the collar bone.
Each repetition 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, and the bar finishes directly over the heels with the feet together. If a split jerk is used, the feet must be brought back together with the hips, knees and elbows fully extended before the repetition is completed.
Each repetition must start ﬂoor and finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended. Any variation of the clean is acceptable (power, squat, split or muscle), as long as the above requirements are met. If a split clean is used, the feet must be brought back together with the hips and knees fully extended before the repetition is complete. A squat clean is permitted, but not required.
The hips and knees must open fully while both feet are on the box, and the athlete is showing control. You may step down off of the box- but you must jump up off of both feet.
Athlete must begin with chest and hips in contact with the ground and feet in contact with the base of the wall. The athlete will walk their feet up the wall untill the middle of their chest comes into contact with the wall- the feet must remain in contact with the wall throughout the entire return back to the starting position.
Each rep must begin with the athletes shoulder blades and tail bone in contact with the ground and the weight extended in either arm. The athlete must get to their feet with the weight locked out overhead in a fully controlled position and the knees and hips fully extended. The weight does not have to remain locked out throughout the entire duration on the rep, however, it cannot come into contact with any part of the body or the floor at any point.
In the front squat, the barbell must be held in the front rack position. At the bottom, the crease of the hips must pass below the height of the kneecap. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell in control. A full squat clean will count as a repetition as long as all the above requirements are met.
Overhead Walking Lunge:
The plate must be overhead in order to advance. Locked out arms are not required however, the plate may not touch the head. In each step, the back knee must touch the ground. At the top of the movement the knees and hips must be fully open.
