Section 61

All In

This is a relay race whereby each team member must complete the following ‘Buy-In’ barbell complex for the chance to record max reps in the sprints.

Buy-In

1 x 20m Sprint

5 x Power Cleans

6 x Front Squats

7 x Hang Cleans

8 x Back Squats

1 x 20m Sprint

Rx Athletes: 70/50

Scaled Athletes: 50/30

Then, once all team members have completed their Buy-In, it’s an all-out relay for max. number of sprints (relay style) in the remaining time available.

  • The Buy-In: The first athlete must complete the sprint and barbell complex before the second team member is tagged and begins
  • Once all four team members have completed the Buy-In, that time will be recorded and used as a tiebreaker
  • The time remaining must be used to complete as many additional 40-metre sprints (no barbell complex) as possible. Each completed 40-metre sprint will be counted as 1 Rep
  • The 40-metre sprint relay must be completed by all athletes in the same order as the Buy-In

Movement Standards

POWER CLEAN: The barbell must start on the ground, with both of the athlete’s hands on the on it. The top of the clean is reached when the barbell is in the rack position, with the elbows in front of the bar and the knees and hips fully extended.

FRONT SQUAT: In the front squat, the barbell must be held in the front rack position. At the bottom of the squat, the crease of the hips must pass below the height of the kneecap. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell in control.

HANG CLEAN: Each repetition must start from the hanging position, both arms straight, barbell in hands and in the standing position. For repetitions starting from the ground you must first achieve a deadlift lockout (hips and knees fully extended, shoulders behind the barbell) before re-dipping to initiate the hang squat clean. Cleaning the barbell from the ground in one continuous motion is not permitted.

The barbell cannot pass below the top of the knee for it to be classed as a hang clean. Each repetition finishes with the bar racked on the shoulders and the elbows clearly in front of the bar with the hips and knees fully extended.

BACK SQUAT: In the back squat, the barbell must be held behind the neck on the athlete’s shoulders or back. At the bottom, the crease of the hips must pass below the height of the kneecap. At the top, the knees and hips must be completely open with the barbell in control.

You may drop the bar from behind once completing your reps before tagging the next athlete.

Note: No outside assistance is permitted (inc. your team members) to help get the bar up for your back squats.
