This workout begins standing fully extended, hands off the barbell with a preloaded barbell with the starting weight on the bar. At the call of GO, the athlete will begin with their 9 squat clean thrusters. Once all 9 are repetitions are completed, the athlete will load the barbell with the next weight indicated and complete 7 squat clean thrusters. The athlete will continue in this fashion with 5 repetitions, 3 repetitions, and 1 repetition. There will be an 8 minute time cap on this workout.

Assistance from a second person is NOT ALLOWED to help load the barbell. Only ONE Barbell may by used in this workout.

Your score for this workout will be the time it takes you to complete all 25 repetitions. There is an 8 minute time cap placed on this workout. If unable to complete all repetitions under the time cap, your score will be 8:00 plus 1 second for any repetition not completed in the time cap. For instance, if you only completed 18 of the 25 reps, your score would be 8:07.

*Collars are mandatory for a completed lift.
** The video mentions that there is a tie-breaker. Unfortunatley, the scoring system does not allow for tie-breakers, and this video was filmed before we received this information. There will be no tie-breaker for Qualifier One.

Movement Standards:

Squat Clean Thruster
In the squat clean thruster, you must clean the bar to a front rack position, making sure to catch it in a squat with your hip crease below your knee. Extend upward and push the bar overhead in one smooth motion. A clean & jerk is a no rep. Finish with the bar overhead, in control, and your knees, hips, shoulders and elbows fully extended. You MAY Power Clean the barbell and then proceed into your squat with your hip crease below knee crease and then extend upward and push the bar overhead. No JERK MOTION will be allowed to finish your thruster. You may not re-dip underneath the barbell once you start the upward motion in your squat.

Additional Notes

The athlete must load their own barbell and may not receive assistance.
