“Push & Pull” Contest Rules

“Pull” Bicep Curl 

Lifters will have 3 attempts to get the heaviest one rep. The head and lower back must be pinned to the wall and the feet will be placed a foot away from the wall. The bar must start on a “dead hang” on the lifter’s thigh. Only when the command “start” is given can the lifter begin the movement. To complete the rep, the curl bar must be at the lifter’s eye level. The lifter must wait for the command “down” before any downward motion.

Commands are:

  • Start
  • Down

Cause for “no lift”

  • The Head or lower back lifts off the wall
  • Any bounce or downward motion after being given the command “start”
  • If a lifter does not listen to commands

“Push” Bench Press

Lifters will have 3 attempts to get the heaviest one rep. Head and butt must be touching the bench while feet are firmly planted on the ground. Lifters must demonstrate full control of the bar before getting the command “start”.  After the “start” command, lifters can begin the movement and bring the bar to their chest. The bar must come to a complete stop before it is given the command “Press”. The command “rack” is given after the lifter demonstrates/shows full control of the bar.

Commands are:

  • Start
  • Press
  • Rack

Cause for “no lift”

  • Head or butt lift off the bench during any part of the lift
  • Bouncing off the chest
