Lift starts with the bar in the extended position. Feet must remain in contact with the floor throughout the lift (no hooking bench support with feet/legs). Bar must touch the chest and be fully extended on each press – stopping terminates the lift. No bouncing bar off chest. Shoulder and rear must stay in contact with the bench during lifts. If necessary, plates may be placed under lifters’ feet. No baggy clothing, belts, wraps or lifting suits. Decisions of our judges are final.
Participants will begin by completing their max rep bench press. Registration and Bench Press will begin at Noon. Race will commence after all racers have completed their lift (approximately 1:00pm)
