Keystone State Games Fitness Competition EVENT #1

Overhead SquatEVENT #1:

Snatch / Overhead Squat Ladder.
There will be 8 bars for each division increasing in weight. Each athlete will have 1 minute at each bar.

Weights for each division will be based on the specifications for snatch in that division. The third barbell will reflect the expected capacity. So, for men’s Rx, the third barbell will be 155#. For Rx women, the third barbell will be 115#. Specifications can be found here.

To advance, the athlete must do 1 snatch from the floor (muscle snatch, power snatch, or full squat snatch are acceptable) to move to the next bar and to be eligible for earning additional points. For the snatch to count, the barbell may not stop during its ascent, and the athlete may not catch the bar below his/her head and press the bar above the head.

Once a good snatch rep is achieved, the athlete may do up to 10 OHS to earn additional points. [The final bar will not have an OHS rep cap.] The OHS do not need to be consecutive; the athlete may put the bar down and snatch it again to accumulate additional OHS; however, only the first snatch will count towards points.
