MOVEMENT STANDARDS

The lifts will be performed in the following sequence, Bench Press, Back Squat and Deadlift

Bench Press:

  • A spotter/assistant to help lift the bar out of the rack is strongly recommended but NOT required. Spotters may help to assist with taking the bar out of the rack to the starting position with the athletes arms fully extended and the bar fully supported over the chest by the athlete. Once the assistant lets go of the bar at the starting position, they may not touch the bar again until helping to re-rack when the lift is done
  • The acceptable body position for the one repetition is as follows:
    • Both complete shoulder blades and the glutes must be in contact with the bench pad at all times. If either comes off of the pad during a lift, the lift will not count.
    • In order to achieve firm footing, lifter may have plates or blocks under their feet. If either foot comes off of the floor or plates during a lift the lift will not count
    • Hooking of feet/legs around the bench supports is not permitted
    • Per IPF standards, the spacing of the hands can not exceed 81 cm (31.9") measured between the index fingers. The maximum grip width permitted will have each index finger on or inside the 81 cm (31.9") marks at each end of the bar shaft. If the hands move outside of the designated markings during a lift attempt that single repetition will not be counted.
    • These lines need to be clearly marked and visible on the barbell shaft with chalk. Failure to have these lines clearly marked and visible makes the athletes score subject to penalty at the judge's discretion
    • Both hands must remain on the barbell during the entire unbroken set and must remain within in contact with the markings at all times.
  • When the athlete has full unassisted control of the barbell extended over their chest after the initial unrack, they may begin their attempt by lowering the bar to the chest. There must be clear contact with the chest. Once contact has been made the athlete will then press the bar back to the starting position with the elbows clearly extended and the bar over the chest.
  • Deliberately bounding the barbell off the chest may be interpreted as trying to gain an unfair advantage and could result in a penalty being assessed


See the Rogue 1000 Pound Club instructional video at www.roguefitness.com/challenges for a visual example of the permitted movements.


FLOW

The lifts will be performed in the following sequence, bench press, back squat and deadlift

Lift 1: The Bench Press:

  • Must confirm this equipment to the camera


When the athlete is ready they may verbally declare their initial weight

  • The athlete must show Time.is to the camera to confirm all 3 lifts take place within one hour of each other
  • Confirm no illegal equipment is being used
  • If adding weight for multiple attempts clearly show all previously weighed equipment being added to the camera
  • Verbally confirm new load
  • Complete lift - athlete must touch the chest and fully extend the arms - refer to movement standards
  • Show the measurement of the 81 cm (31.9"") marks on the barbell
  • Verify load lifted to the camera by showing each verified/marked weight and barbell before completing video


BENCH PRESS VIDEO SUBMISSION STANDARDS

For this challenge, athletes should submit 3 separate videos. 1 video for each movement. Each video should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause. Sound should be ON during the filming. Be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the movement and clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions so that the video is clear.

When submitting your 3 videos, please enter all three youtube URLS into the 1 video submission box in BTWB. URLs need to be separated by a comma during the submission process

NOTE: The athletes first video (bench press) has the added step of weighing and marking each weight and barbell that will be used for the entire challenge. The following two videos (squat followed by deadlift) do not need to recalibrate or remark the weights and bars.

This video should be shot from at a 45 degree angle to the athlete ensuring that the video clearly shows the entire body. Critical items that need to be clearly visible on the video:

  1. Calibration of Digital Scales using a Kettlebell or Dumbbell
  2. Weighing, taping and initialing all equipment to be used for the entire challenge
  3. Taping of the barbell width for the bench press standards

  4. The athlete must show the scale calibration by placing a dumbbell/kettlebell on the scale and showing the scale reading is correct.
  5. The camera should then clearly show each piece of equipment the athlete will use during their challenge being weighed and initialed. All of the following must be shown:
    • The camera must show all weight plates that will be used for all three movements on the scale and show the scale reading for each. The entire scale should be clearly visible to the camera
      • This includes any plates that will be used in the following two movements that are not used for the bench press movement
    • The camera must show the barbell on the scale and show the scale reading
    • As each piece of equipment has been weighed on camera, the athlete must put their initials on it.

The deadlift video should be uncut and unedited in order to accurately display the performance. Videos shot with a fisheye lens or similar lens may be rejected due to the visual distortion these lenses cause. Sound should be ON during the filming. Be sure the athlete has adequate space to safely complete the movement and clear the area of all extra equipment, people, or other obstructions so that the video is clear.

*When submitting your 3 videos, please enter all three youtube URLS into the 1 video submission box in BTWB. URLs need to be separated by a comma during the submission process

This video should be shot from at a 45 degree angle to the athlete ensuring that the video clearly shows the entire body. Critical items that need to be clearly visible on the video:

  1. Show the weighed, taped and initialed equipment to be used for the Deadlift
  2. Clearly show the lift so that movement standards can be verified

Next the athlete will need to follow the steps outlined below:

  1. The submitted video should start with the entire athlete in frame stating their name, the challenge name and "deadlift attempt".
  2. The athlete must open time.is on their device and clearly show the time.is reading to the camera. Please verbally confirm the date and time showing on time.is.
    • This step can be done at the same time as step 1 above
    • This step is to confirm the athlete is still within their 1 hour time window
  3. The camera should then show the bar being loaded for their first lift attempt.
    • Clearly show the taped initials on the barbell shaft
    • Clearly show only taped and initialled plates being added to the barbell.
    • Once loaded, verbally confirm the load to be attempted to the camera, ensuring the video can confirm this load
    • A coach or helper can assist with this process
  4. The athlete needs to show the camera all supportive equipment they are wearing or will wear for the challenge to confirm it all matches the rules outlined.
  5. The camera should move back into the correct 45 degree filming angle for the challenge attempt.
    • The final position should capture all movement standards to be able to verify the lift, refer to the movement standards above
  6. Once the athlete is ready they may begin their lift based on the criteria outlined above.
  7. If changing the load and completing multiple attempts:
    • Clearly show all weights marked with the tape and athlete initials being added/removed to the camera for each attempt
    • Verbally confirm loads being added/removed
    • Verbally confirm new load to be attempted
    • A coach or helper can assist with this process
  8. Once final lift is completed show and confirm last successful load lifted
  • All of the steps above should be done with the camera continuously running for the video to be accepted.
  • Failure to show these steps/items could make the video submission subject to rejection at the judge's discretion.
  • Refer to the demo video on the Rogue website for a visual for how the workout and video should flow.
