1. Weigh yourself.

2. Put the equal amount of weight on to a Olympic sized bar. The weight cannot be lower than bodyweight.

Example - Dave in London weighs 101.2kg. His gym only has 1.25kg weights and therefore he must do 102.5kg.
Example - Steve in New York weighs 154.2lbs. He wants to work in pounds and not kilogrammes ?because his gym only has those style of weights then he must put a minimum of 155lbs on the bar.

3. A spotter behind is allowed to lift out the bar. (this is advised for safety) . The athlete then takes the bar with straight arms and begins once he has the weight fully on his own.

4. The bar then must touch the chest each time for a very quick pause before being propelled upwards for a a rep. At the top the athlete must stop for a very brief pause and either he/she or their - training partner must call out the number. of reps they have done so far.

5. There is no time limit but you are not allowed to rest the bar on your chest for more than a one second pause per rep and no re-racking unless you are finished.

6. Any rep where the spotter had to touch the bar before before the arms are locked out will not count.
