5:00 time cap

  • Tie-break is total time it takes to get to last lift and then unload bars back to original empty position.
  • 2 attempts per bar, 60 seconds to complete lift once hands touch bar for first lift of the two attempts.

Individual Clarifications:

  1. Athlete loads and unloads their own bar inside the time cap. Yes, clock still running during unload.
  2. If the 5th barbell is completed lifter will advance the entire load to Alpha Lift (Part B) no timed reset of plates required. (Athlete will assist in resetting weights after lift completed)

Individual Part B:

Alpha Lift:

  1. Begins minimum 2:00 after last lift in ladder
  2. Lifters need to notify judge of their Alpha Lift weight upon clearing the ladder. Lifters must lift before or at 2:00 mark. Lifter will have 60 seconds to complete Alpha lift called.
  3. Score is last successful lift and time it was completed.
  4. Lifter can go up, not down once lift is called
  5. Lifter can lift again inside 60 seconds if able
  6. If lifts are missed – your score reverts to last successful lift and weight lifted

Team Part A

5:00 time cap

Each lift must be completed 3 times (total of 15 lifts in ladder). Distribute the work anyway HOWEVER there is a minimum of 3 lifts per athlete.

  1. Team Tie Breaker: Time of last completed station AND the unloading of weights. Points are weight lifted. For example: RX Male team finishes all three lifts of 265 at 3:45 but one lifter makes a lift at 285, the tie break time for the WOD is 3:45. The additional lift will be deducted from seconds. Clock is running until weights are unloaded.
  2. 2 attempts per bar, 60 seconds to complete lift once hands touch bar for first lift of the two attempts.
  3. If Teams clear 5th barbell they will advance entire load to Alpha Lift (Part B) no timed reset of plates required

Team Part B

Alpha Lift

Begins minimum 2:00 after last lift in ladder.

  1. Lifters must lift before or at 2:00 mark
  2. Teams: Only one lift required. 
  3. If weight called is missed – any team member can jump in and hit the weight inside the 60 seconds.
  4. Team’s Lifter needs to notify judge of their Alpha Lift weight upon clearing the ladder.
  5. Lifter will have 60 seconds to complete Alpha lift called.
  6. Score is last successful lift and time it was completed.
  7. Lifter can go up, not down once lift is called
  8. Lifter can lift additional weight inside the 60 seconds if able.
  9. If lifts are missed – your score reverts to last successful lift and weight lifted

Individual Clarifications:

  1. Athletes loads and unloads their own bar inside the time cap. Yes, clock still running during unload. Team may assist at all times, but all lifts start from ground.
  2. If the 5th barbell is completed lifter will advance the entire load to Alpha Lift (Part B) no timed reset of plates required. (Team will assist in resetting weights after Alpha Lift)

    Can you PLEASE recap the time stamps for the Teams Alpha Lift? Ted, this summer for IV you highly recommended lifts right out of the ladder: you said once the ladder was complete, you would not be waiting or resting during those 2 minutes – you said lift and get a PR! Is the idea the same? So my question is – can someone get more than 1 successful lift in after the ladder? THANKS!
