2019 Barbells & Beer Movement Standards:


This is a traditional deadlift with the hands outside the knees. Sumo deadlifts are not allowed.

Starting with the barbell on the floor, the athlete lifts the bar until the hips and knees reach full extension, and the head and shoulders are behind the bar. The arms must be straight throughout. No bouncing.

*You are not allowed to perform a Power Clean for your last Deadlift Rep and first Hang Clean Rep combined, they must be two separate movements. I.E. You must complete final Deadlift before starting Hang Cleans. Failure to do so will result in a No Rep.


Hang Clean:

A muscle clean, power clean, squat clean or split clean may be used as long as the barbell starts from the hang and comes up to the shoulders, with the hips and knees fully extended, the feet in line and the elbows in front of the bar.

 *If the bar drops during Hang Cleans, you must first deadlift, pause, and then perform Hang Clean. (restart from a hang position)


Shoulders to Overhead:

A strict press, push press, push jerk, or split jerk may be used as long as the bar starts at the shoulders in a front rack position. At the top, the elbows, shoulders, hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line.

 *If you have completed all of your hang cleans, you may power clean the bar to the front rack position to work on shoulders to overhead.
