TtbA Virtual Meet Rules!

Note: This is NOT intended to be a sanctioned meet of any sort and therefore is not bound by any federation rules.

  • Meets will consist of the standard 3 Powerlifts – Squat, Bench Press, Deadlift
  • Winners will be determined for both male and female participants.
  • Winners will be determined by adding the highest weight lifted on each “good lift” and dividing by the weight of the lifter.
  • Judges will review the lift via video and determine if its a “good lift” or “no lift”.
  • Any lift performed in a sanctioned meet may be entered and will automatically receive the same result as the meet provided it was performed during the open virtual meet dates.

The Lifts

  • Squat – Squat must be at least AT OR BELOW parallel. Double bouncing at the bottom or backwards travel of the bar once the accent has begun are reasons for a “no lift”.
  • Bench Press – Barbell must touch the chest but does not need to pause. “Touch and Go” is acceptable. Double bouncing at the bottom or backwards travel of the bar once the accent has begun are reasons for a “no lift”.
  • Deadlift – A noticeable pause must be achieved at the lock out of the lift. backwards travel of the bar once the accent has begun are reasons for a “no lift”.

Gear

  • This is intended to be a raw meet. Allowed gear is limited to a belt, knee sleeves, and wrist wraps.

Video

  • You may submit up to 3 attempts at each lift – no more than 9 videos total.
  • Weights must be visible in the video. The lifters entire body must be visible in the video.
  • If any elements of the lift are not visible due to camera angle or any other reason, the judges may use their discretion to make the call.
