Team Total of 1RM Shoulder to Overhead + 1RM Hang Squat Snatch – Presented By The Fitness Cage – 12 minutes

Each teammate will be responsible for one lift only. Each team must inform the judge before the WOD which athlete is performing each lift, and may not change during the WOD. Same gender teams will have one bar to share while mixed gender teams will have a men’s bar and a women’s bar. Athletes will have 12 minutes total to complete their heaviest lift. Athletes may complete the lifts in whichever order they’d like, and may alternate attempts between lifts and athletes.

Scoring: Final score will be total weight lifted by adding the heaviest weight lifted for each lift together. The total weight lifted will be ranked against all other teams in the division. This final ranking will count as one quarter of the overall scoring for the Tango event. *The hang squat snatch 1RM by itself may be used as a tie-breaker in podium decision or WOD winner prize only (ties will be permitted on the WOD itself).

Movement Standards

Shoulder to Overhead: The barbell will start from the ground and non-working teammate may not assist in getting the bar to the front rack position. The movement starts in the front rack position. This movement may be performed as either a strict press, push press, push jerk or split jerk. The rep will be counted when the athlete has reached full extension of the knees, hips, shoulders, and elbows with have feet under his/her hips, showing control of the barbell overhead.

Hang Squat Snatch: This movement begins with the athlete deadlifting the barbell and reaching full hip extension. The athlete will then lower the barbell no lower than the knees before snatching the weight overhead, with the hip crease passing below the knee during the movement. Athletes may power snatch then OHS if needed. The athlete must show control of the barbell with full lockout overhead with the hips, knees, and elbows fully extended at the end of the movement. The barbell may not make contact with the athlete’s head at any time during the movement.
