Saturday 28/12/13 – Competition

Workout of the Day
Day 2 of the Invictus Online Competition (800 of 2000 available points)

Event 7
Take exactly 20-minutes to build to a 1-RM Snatch.

When the clock reaches 20:00, begin Event 8…
Event 8
For time:
20 Deadlifts (143/97.5 kg)
40 Pull-Ups
80 Double-Unders
20 Cleans (100 kg/66 kg)
40 Pull-Ups
80 Double-Unders
20 Snatches (62/42.5 lb)
40 Pull-Ups
80 Double-Unders

Event 7 (200 points): The barbell must start empty. The athlete will have exactly 20 minutes to establish a 1-RM snatch. Athletes may use any snatch technique they choose – power snatch, split snatch or snatch. A very small, almost imperceptible press out will be accepted, but we expect this to be a snatch and not some awkward looking snatch-grip press from forehead to overhead. Athletes may perform multiple attempts and score only their heaviest successful attempt. Scores should be reported in lbs – so if you lift in kgs, simply convert to lbs for purposes of this competition.

Event 8 (600 points): Event 8 starts when the clock reaches 20:00. Athletes may use only one barbell for the entirety of this event, and must change their own weights. Men’s barbells should be loaded with three 45 lb plates on each side of a 20 kg barbell; women’s barbells should be loaded – from the inside out on each side – with a 25 lb bumper plate, a 5 lb change plate, a 25 lb bumper plate, a 25 lb bumper plate and a 10 lb change plate on a 15 kg barbell. (If you are a female athlete who doesn’t have a 15 kg barbell, simply remove the 5 lb change plate.) The cleans and snatches in Event 8 may be performed as power cleans/snatches. All movements should be performed to Games standards. Report the time in which it took to complete this portion (i.e., subtract the 20 minutes from the total time for today’s events).

Scoring: Athletes must provide two separate scores for today’s events. Scores should be entered as follows:
Event 7 – 265 lbs
Event 8 – 15:44
