18 - 12 - 8
Squat Clean & Jerk
The workout begins with the athlete standing tall in front of the barbell on the ground loaded with weights. After the call of “3, 2, 1… go,” the athlete will pick up the barbell and performs 18 squat clean & jerks.
After 18 reps are completed, the athlete adds the extra weights on the barbell to perform the set of 12 squat Clean & Jerks.
Next the athlete will add the last plates for more weight in the 3rd set of this workout: 8 squat Clean & Jerks.
When the 3rd set is completed, judge stops his stopwatch & notes the finish time.
Squat Clean & Jerks
Please note: this is a Oly style Clean. And Jerk. 2 movements, a short stop between the two is required. Movements such as clusters or thruster jerks are not allowed and will result in a no rep.
The barbell begins on the ground. 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. The athlete must pass through a full squat with hips below the knees. Receiving the barbell in the bottom of the squat is not required; a power clean or split clean followed by a front squat will be permitted, but a deadlift followed by a hang clean is not allowed.
After a short stop shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used to get the weight overhead. The rep is credited when the barbell is at full lockout overhead, with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over or slightly behind the middle of the body with the feet in line.
Note: B12 & G12 - 1st round (18 reps): barbell starts/ends at mid shin, 2nd and 3rd round start/end at the ground
