Weight classes:

In order to qualify for weight class distinction in the Leaderboards, submitted attempts must either include recording of the athletes weight or come from a competition with official weigh-ins. Official weight classes for men are Open, 105kg-, and 80kg-. Official weight classes for women are Open, 80kg-, and 63kg-. Lifts submitted without weights will be entered into the Open categories.

1-Hand and 2-Hand Flask:

The apparatus must be fixed to the loading pin using the quick release pin. The athlete must lift the apparatus in a overhand pinch grip and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 7.5” lift. The 7.5" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 7.5".

For 1-hand lifts, the lifting hand must be centered on the device. If there is any question as to whether the hand is centered, it is recommended that the judge or referee draw a line down the center of the device and the lifter’s hand must cover the point where the line intersects the top of the Flask.

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Pinch gripping the device using an unorthodox underhand grip will not be allowed. Touching the straight edges of the device at any point during the lift will invalidate the attempt. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted. Any alteration of the gripping surface of the device is not permitted.

The total weight lifted must be weighed and displayed in video submissions unless the video is taken from a sanctioned event. Witnessed lifts with no video submission will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Stirrup:

The athlete must show the side of the device being lifted upon (1” or 1/2”) and lift the apparatus using only the fingertips, on the flat surface of that side the stirrup only, with the fingers not passing completely through any part of the device and thumb not in contact with the device, and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 4.5” lift. The 4.5" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 4.5".

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted. Any alteration of the gripping surface of the device is not permitted.

Tips Tester: 

The apparatus must be fixed to the loading pin using the quick release pin. The athlete must lift the apparatus by grasping the round tube, being sure not to wrap the hand(s) around the flange, and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 6” lift. The 6" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 6".

For 1-hand lifts, the hand must be centered, such that the center line of the device is between the outside edges of the index finger and pinky finger. For visual aid, a line can be drawn down the center of the device with a marker if desired.

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted. Any alteration of the gripping surface of the device is not permitted. 

The total weight lifted must be weighed and displayed in video submissions unless the video is taken from a sanctioned event. Witnessed lifts with no video submission will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

DubHub

The apparatus must be fixed to the loading pin using the quick release pin. The hub must be fastened to the base using the nut and must not be loose. 

This is a one handed lift. The lifter’s hand may not reach around or below the base plate or make contact with the inside surface of the hub.

The hub must be lifted approximately level and neither the hub nor the lifting hand may make any contact with the body during the lift.

The athlete must lift the apparatus and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 7.5” lift. The 7.5" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 7.5".

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted. Any alteration of the gripping surface of the device is not permitted. 

The total weight lifted must be weighed and displayed in video submissions unless the video is taken from a sanctioned event. Witnessed lifts with no video submission will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Delmar Carter Anvil Stub

The apparatus must be attached to a loading pin using cord or with a spring clip. The lifter must use an unaltered device and only magnesium carbonate chalk may be applied to the hands and device. This is a one handed lift. The lifters hand may not reach around or below the base plate or make contact with the cord, loading pin, or anything below the baseplate during the lift. The anvil stub must not be intentionally tilted and neither the  implement nor the lifting hand may make any contact with the body during the lift.

The athlete must lift the apparatus and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 7.5” lift. The 7.5" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 7.5".

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted. Any alteration of the gripping surface of the device is not permitted. 

The total weight lifted must be weighed and displayed in video submissions unless the video is taken from a sanctioned event. Witnessed lifts with no video submission will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Trilobite Rolling Handle

Before the lift, the lifter must show what size roller they are using and demonstrate that it can spin freely for at least 2 full seconds. If it does not roll like this, it is recommended that the lifter clean any chalk or dirt off the axle and the hole of the roller and apply a light coat of lubricant. In a competition, promoters are responsible for cleaning and servicing their equipment prior to the event so the lifter is not required to. The promoter should also discourage intentional packing of chalk into the moving parts of the handle.

The device must be roughly centered in the hand. If necessary, a line can be drawn around the center of the roller. The lifter is to ensure that some portion of the middle or ring finger of the hand is touching the line. Intentional or unintentional tilting of the device will invalidate the lift.

The rolling handle must be attached to a loading pin. The athlete must lift the apparatus and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 7.5” lift. The 7.5" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 7.5".

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted. Any alteration of the gripping surface of the device is not permitted. 

The total weight lifted must be weighed and displayed in video submissions unless the video is taken from a sanctioned event. Witnessed lifts with no video submission will be evaluated on a case by case basis.

Blob Trainer

The apparatus must be fixed to the loading pin using the quick release pin. Carabiner-attached lifts, while useful for training, are not admissible for leaderboards. The athlete must lift the apparatus in a overhand pinch grip and touch the height indicator to the crossbar, which is set for a 7.5” lift. The 7.5" distance from indicator to crossbar must be demonstrated in the video using a ruler or tape measure. The lifter does not have to be erect upon completion of the attempt. If a crossbar is not used, the weight must be lifted to lockout or to a height demonstrably higher than 7.5".

The device must be roughly centered in the hand. If necessary, a line can be drawn around the center of the Blob Trainer. The lifter is to ensure that some portion of the middle or ring finger of the hand is touching the line. Intentional or unintentional tilting of the device will invalidate the lift.

The lifter must lower the weight under control. Pinch gripping the device using an unorthodox underhand grip will not be allowed. Touching the edges of the device at any point during the lift will invalidate the attempt. Use of any grip aids besides magnesium carbonate chalk is not permitted.
