Movement Standards:

Hang Squat Clean Thruster – This movement starts with the barbell in the hang position above the knees, it ends with the barbell in a full lockout overhead, and the athlete must perform a thruster in order to get the barbell from the squat position to overhead. The athlete may perform a hang power clean to thruster, or the athlete may perform a hang squat clean to thruster. At the bottom of the thruster the hip crease must pass below the top of the knees. The movement from the squat to extension overhead must be performed in one fluid motion without stopping or segmenting at the shoulders. The barbell must come to a full lockout overhead with the hips, knees and arms fully extended, and the bar directly over the body before returning the barbell the hang position. The barbell may be dropped from the top of the repetition, but the barbell must be brought to the hang position before completing the next repetition.

Bar-facing Burpee – Each burpee must be performed perpendicular to and facing the barbell. Your head cannot be over the barbell at the bottom of the burpee. The chest and thighs touch the ground at the bottom. You must jump over the barbell from both feet and land on both feet. One-footed jumping or stepping over is not permitted at L3 or L2. The next rep will then begin on the opposite side facing the barbell. One footed jumping or stepping over the bar is permitted for Level 1 only.
