ATX Throwdown

Rx Online Event

“Oly One Twenty”

2 Minutes Total Time

1 Rep Snatch + Max Clean and Jerk Reps in remaining time

This event is for Rx athletes ONLY. All other divisions will not complete this event. This event counts as the first event of the competition. This is for TEAMS and INDIVIDUAL Rx Athletes.

Teams will have 2 scores. Score 1 is the Females weight and reps combined and Score 2 is the Male weights and reps combined. All 4 athletes who complete this event must be the same athletes who compete in the live event on June 3rd. If an athlete who completes this online event does not compete on June 3rd, their score will be dropped from the team scores as a ZERO.


DESCRIPTION OF EVENT

The athletes MUST CHOOSE from the pre-determined weights listed below to attempt this event. They may not choose any weight other than the listed weights below. If an athlete cannot complete the minimum weight, they will receive a score of ZERO.

Before lifting, the athlete will clearly show their barbell as well as all bumper plates on the bar to validate the weight on the bar.

On 3,2,1, Go, the athlete will complete a snatch. Once completed, the athlete will complete as many clean and jerks with that same barbell in the remainder of the 2 minutes that is left.

The snatch and the clean and jerk may be done in any manner, i.e. Power, Full, Split but must be taken from the ground. The clean and jerks do not have to be done unbroken.

The final score will be the weight of the snatch plus the number of clean and jerk reps (after the decimal).

The higher the weight, the better the score. A snatch of 225 with 1 clean and jerk will beat a snatch of 205 with 15 clean and jerks.

EXAMPLES

The Individual Athlete snatches 205lbs and then proceeds to clean and jerk the 205lb barbell as many times as possible until the 2 minutes runs out. If the athlete completes 7 reps within the time frame, their final score is 205.07. If they do 10 reps, their score will be 205.10.

Teams will combine female scores as Score 1 and male scores as Score 2. Example: Female 1 does 140lbs for her snatch and 8 clean and jerk reps. Female 2 does 160lbs for her snatch and 11 clean and jerk reps. Their Score 1 is 300.19.

MOVEMENT STANDARDS

Snatch (Full, Power, Split, Muscle)

The snatch begins on the ground, and the barbell is brought overhead in one smooth motion. The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the body. The athlete DOES NOT HAVE TO achieve a full squat.

Clean and Jerk

The clean and jerk is a ground-to-overhead any way, except for a snatch. A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used to get the bar to the shoulders, and a shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used to get the weight overhead. The barbell begins on the ground.

The barbell must come to full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the middle of the body.

VIDEO STANDARDS (Please read!)

Using a camera phone/camera, the athlete will state their name and affiliate and prove their weights on the barbell as well as prove the weight of the barbell. YOU MAY ONLY SUBMIT ONE SCORE.

Athletes must use bumper plates in pounds, not kilos. They must choose the weights listed above in the increments listed.

A clock must be in view and the athlete may not touch the bar until the clock starts. (Penalty is 2 reps off the clean and jerks if they are touching the bar before the clock starts)

The athlete will then complete the snatch and then complete as many clean and jerks until the 2 minutes is up.

The athlete or a judge will then announce into the camera how many cleans the athlete completed.

Teams will have 4 separate score submissions and videos. Please do not combine all videos into 1 video.

The athlete will then upload their video to YouTube or Vimeo and submit their score on our official form:
