RX/Scaled: Athletes will have 15 seconds to take the first barbell from the ground and then perform one thruster at a specified weight. They will then have 10 seconds to transition to the next barbell where the same requirements apply. They may make only one thruster attempt in any 15 second period. An attempt is defined by the barbell leaving the shoulders after the squat. If an athlete drops the barbell before an attempt is made, he or she may make take the barbell from the floor again. There will be 15 barbells. Athletes continue so long as they successfully perform the rep within the 15 seconds. Their result is the weight of their heaviest successful thruster.

Movement Standards

Thruster:

The barbell starts on the ground, and the athlete must elevate it into the rack position. There is no requirement to stand up fully before beginning the thruster, nor is standing up prohibited. The thruster begins when the athlete squats below parallel with the barbell racked on the shoulders (or at least below the chin). Then, in a single movement the athlete drives the barbell up out of the squat and overhead. The finishing position has the knees, hips and arms fully extended with the barbell stable over the heels. Once the athlete hits the bottom of the squat, there can be no rebend of the knees and/or hips, and the feet must remain stationary. The bar can stop near the top and be pressed out if necessary, but any descent of the barbell (after upward movement in the thruster has begun) constitutes a no-lift. Any stepping, splitting, repositioning of the feet, re-bending the hips or knees or jerking all constitute a no-lift. Going up on the toes is permitted as long as the feet remain stationary. The athlete must wait for the judge’s signal to drop the weight.
