“Rules of Performance” for KAFB PR Board

SQUAT

1. The lifter shall face the front of the platform. The bar shall be held horizontally across the shoulders, hands and fingers gripping the bar. The hands may be positioned anywhere on the bar inside and or in contact with the inner collars.

2. After removing the bar from the racks, (the lifter may be aided in removal of the bar from the racks by the spotter / loaders) the lifter must move backwards to establish the starting position. When the lifter is motionless, erect (slight deviation is allowable) with knees locked.

3. The lifter must bend the knees and lower the body until the top surface of the legs at the hip joint is lower than the top of the knees. Only one decent attempt is allowed. The attempt is deemed to have commenced when the lifters knees have unlocked.

4. The lifter must recover at will to an upright position with the knees locked. Double bouncing at the bottom of the squat attempt or any downward movement is not permitted.

5. For reasons of safety the lifter may request the aid of the spotter/loaders in returning the bar to, and replacing it in the racks. The lifter must stay with the bar during this process.

 

CAUSES FOR DISQUALIFICATION OF A SQUAT

1. Failure of completion of the lift.

2. Double bouncing at the bottom of the lift, or any downward movement during the ascent.

3. Failure to assume an upright position with the knees locked at the commencement or completion of the lift.

4. Stepping backward or forward or moving the feet laterally. Rocking the feet between the ball and heel is permitted.

5. Failure to bend the knees and lower the body until the top surface of the legs at the hip joint is lower than the top of the knees.

6. Contact with the bar or the lifter by the spotter/loaders in order to make the lift easier.

7. Contact of the elbows or upper arms with the legs. Slight contact is permitted if there is no supporting that might aid the lifter.

8. Any dropping or dumping of the bar after completion of the lift.

9. Failure to comply with any items outlined under “Rules of Performance” for the squat.

 

BENCH PRESS

1. The bench shall be placed on the platform with the head facing the front or angled up to 45 degrees.

2. The lifter must lie on his back with head, shoulders and buttocks in contact with the bench surface. The feet must be flat on the floor (as flat as the shape of the shoe will allow). His hands and fingers must grip the bar positioned in the rack stands with a thumbs around grip. This position shall be maintained throughout the lift. Foot movement is permissible but must remain flat on the platform.

3. Not more than five and not less than two spotters/loaders shall be on the platform at any time. After correctly positioning himself, the lifter may enlist the help of the spotter/ loaders in removing the bar from the racks. The lift-off if assisted by the spotter/loaders must be at arms’ length.

4. The spacing of the hands shall not exceed 81 cm measured between the forefingers (both forefingers must be within the 81 cm marks and the whole of the forefingers must be in contact with the 81 cm marks if maximum grip is used). The use of the reverse grip is forbidden.

5. The attempt shall consist of a downward movement of the arm together, the lifter must lower the bar to the chest or abdominal area (the bar shall not touch the belt). The lifter must then return the bar to straight arms’ length elbows locked.

 

CAUSES FOR DISQUALIFICATION OF A BENCH PRESS

1. Failure of completion of the lift.

2. Any change in the elected lifting position during the lift proper i.e. any raising movement of the head, shoulders, or buttocks, from the bench, or lateral movement of hands on the bar, or raising of the feet.

3. Heaving, or sinking the bar into the chest or abdominal area after it is motionless in such a way as to make the lift easier.

4. Any downward movement of the whole of the bar in the course of being pressed out.

5. Bar is not lowered to chest or abdominal area i.e. not reaching the chest or abdominal area, or the bar is touching the belt.

6. Failure to press the bar to straight arms’ length elbows locked at the completion of the lift.

7. Contact with the bar or the lifter by the spotter/loaders, in order to make the lift easier.

8. Any contact of the lifter’s feet with the bench or its supports.

9. Deliberate contact between the bar and the bar rests support.

10. Failure to comply with any of the items outlined under the Rules of Performance

 

DEADLIFT

1. The lifter shall face the front of the platform with the bar laid horizontally in front of the lifter’s feet, gripped with an optional grip in both hands and lifted until the lifter is standing erect.

2. On completion of the lift the knees shall be locked in a straight position and the shoulders back.

3. Any rising of the bar or any deliberate attempt to do so will count as an attempt. Once the attempt has begun no downward movement is allowed until the lifter reaches the erect position with the knees locked. If the bar settles as the shoulders come back (slightly downward on completion) this should not be reason to disqualify the lift.

 

CAUSES FOR DISQUALIFICATION OF A DEADLIFT

1. Any downward movement of the bar before it reaches the final position.

2. Failure to stand erect with the shoulders back.

3. Failure to lock the knees straight at the completion of the lift.

4. Supporting the bar on the thighs during the performance of the lift. If the bar edges up the thigh but is not supported this is not reason for disqualification.

5. Stepping backward or forward or moving the feet laterally. Rocking of the feet between ball and heel is permitted.

6. Lowering the bar before reaching final upright position.

7. Allowing the bar to return to the platform without maintaining control with both hands (i.e., releasing the bar from the palms of the hand).

8. Failure to comply with any of the items outlined under “Rules of Performance.
