Participants who are male will Bench approximately 80% of their body weight for reps and female participants will bench approximately 40% BW for reps.
All weights lifted shall be rounded to the nearest 5 pound increment.
The highest number of reps wins. If there is a tie, then participant that pressed more weight wins. If there is a tie in reps &weight, then the person whose birth date is closest to the day of competition will break the tie.
Each Participant will be weighed before the lift and give their birth date.
No weightlifting equipment will be allowed. This includes: -Bench press shirts -Wrist wraps -Wrist straps -Athletic tape -Lifting shoes -Weightbelts -Hand chalk
The Pressing motion must be done in a perpendicular plane (Arms at exactly 90 degrees to the body).
Grip must be shoulder width or slightly wider. With bar lying across your chest, and hands gripping the bar, your forearms must be perpendicular to the floor (elbows at 90 degrees).
Range of motion = Bar must touch the chest or the hands must be adjacent to the chest at the “bottom” of the Range of Motion, and elbows fully extended at the “top”.
You may not bounce the bar off of your chest.
If the lifter begins to struggle, the spotter (referee/fitness assistant) will give the lifter a chance to complete the lift. However if the bar ceases to ascend, begins to descend, or the lifter’s form falters, the spotter will help the lifter rack the weight. This particular rep will not be counted.
Back and Hips must stay on the bench/seat at all times.
Feet must stay on the ground at all times.
Hyperextension/extreme arching of the lower back will not be allowed as determined by the judge.
Any deviation from the rules stated above will result in disqualification.
All participants must fill out a waiver.
