Day 1

Event 1 - Anderson Squat

Prior to the event, athletes will receive pin heights for the implement to set everybody at an equivalent height. Once their turn is ready for the event, they will set up under the implement with their feet in the designated areas. On the judges ‘Lift’ call, the competitors will have 15 seconds to successfully lift the implement until it is locked out, then on receiving a ‘Down’ call will lower it back to the ground. Once it is on the ground, the weight will be increased and they will be given a ‘Lift’ call to repeat the process. If competitors are unable to lift the implement in 15 seconds, they will be timed out and their attempt will be over.

For a successful ‘Down’ call, competitors must be standing with their feet where they began and their knees/hips neutral, and demonstrate control of the implement at the top – the quicker the competitor can get to this position, the quicker they will receive a ‘Down’ call.

No substance aside from chalk may be applied anywhere on the body. One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn, as well as knee sleeves OR knee wraps being worn – not both. Competitors may also wear elbow sleeves/wrist wraps as supportive equipment within reason.

This event will be scored by the highest successful attempt placing first. No times will be taken, and ties will be given with split points.

Weights
<62.5/<72.5/Masters Women – 90kg + 20kg jumps
<82.5/Open – 110kg + 20kg jumps

<80/<90/Masters Men – 160kg + 20kg jumps
<105/Open – 180kg + 20kg jumps

Event 2 - Conans Wheel

The implement will be set up so the crossbar is parallel with the ground when held by the competitor in the zercher position. At the ‘Start’ call, competitors will pick up the implement in a zercher position (crooks of the elbows in front of you), and begin to carry it around the designated path. They may continue this for 60 seconds, or until they are unable to continue. The path will be marked out in 90 degree quarters, with the front of the loading pin needing to cross a quarter line to score. The implement must be carried at all times – competitors will be given one warning for accidental or deliberate drags, and if they do it again their attempt will be over. Competitors may drop and reset the implement, but it must be fully picked up each time.

Competitors may wear a maximum of 2 belts; one hard and one soft. These may be layered, but cannot be stacked up the torso. Knee and elbow sleeves may be worn, as well as wrist wraps. Chalk is the only substance that may be applied to the body.

Each successful quarter revolution will be counted, and the maximum distance covered in the time frame will be awarded first place.

Event 3 - Viking Press

The implement will be set up in a manner where the crossbar is parallel with the ground while in the competitors hands. Starting facing the implement with their hands on the implement but with it resting on the bottom position, at the judges start call the competitors have 60 seconds to press the implement as many times as they can. Once it has been pressed, the Viking Press must be held overhead at full lockout until the competitor receives a ‘Down’ call. Once the competitor has successfully received a ‘Down’ call, the competitor must lower the implement to their shoulders before receiving a ‘Press’ call to begin the process again. The implement may be lowered to the ground to rest between attempts, but they will not receive another ‘Press’ call until it is back to the shoulders. Attempts must receive a ‘Down’ call before the timer runs out to count.

For a successful lockout, the competitor must be standing with their feet in a line, knees locked and elbows straight and not ‘double dip’/push jerk the Viking Press – knees must be locked as the implement is locked out. If competitors do jerk the implement, that rep will not be counted. 

No substance aside from chalk may be applied anywhere on the body. One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn, as well as knee/elbow sleeves and wrist wraps – no equipment apart from this shall be worn.

The event will be scored by the total amount of reps completed within 60 seconds.

Weights
<62.5 Women – 62.5kg
<72.5/Masters – 70kg
<82.5 – 77.5kg
Open – 85kg

<80 Men – 100kg
<90/Masters – 110kg
<105 – 120kg
Open – 135kg
Event 4 - Frame Carry

Competitors may start with their hands on the implement, but it must be on the ground. On the judges ‘Start’ call, competitors may pick the implement up and begin the 15m course. Once the entirety of the implement has crossed the finish line, the competitor will receive a ‘Down’ call. Once the implement is placed down, the competitor may turn around and begin a run of the course back to the beginning, again with the implement fully crossing the line to receive a ‘Down’ call. Competitors may drop the implement during the course, but cannot slide the implement – they will be given one warning, and after that will be penalised 5 seconds for each infraction after that.

No substance aside from chalk may be applied anywhere on the body. One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn as well as elbow/knee sleeves and optional warm pants – no other equipment can be worn.

The event will be won by the fastest time to complete the final run, with fastest time for the initial 15 metres scoring next if competitors are unable to finish the course. No partial runs or distances will be counted.

<62.5 Women – 135kg
<72.5/Masters – 150kg
<82.5 – 165kg
Open – 180kg

<80 Men – 235kg

Day 2

Day 2 - Event 1 - The Lever

Competitors may be standing over the implement facing away from the pivot point with their hands on the handles, but the implement must remain on the ground. At the judge start call, competitors will attempt lift the implement by the handle. Once they have successfully lifted it, they will receive a ‘Down’ call from the judge. From there, the competitor may step to the next handle down the lever, once the judge has deemed they are in position they will have 15 seconds to attempt the next handle. This process is repeated until they are unsuccessful at lifting a weight.

To receive a ‘Down’ call, competitors must be locked out – knees locked, hips ‘through’ and shoulders in a neutral position. No warnings will be given for missed ‘Down’ calls – if the competitor lowers the implement before this call is received, they will have to re-attempt the weight again within the 15 second allowable time.

No substance aside from chalk may be applied anywhere on the body. One soft belt and one hard belt, layered but not stacked up the torso may be worn as well as elbow/knee sleeves and optional warm pants – no other equipment can be worn.

This event will be won by lifting the heaviest weight within their weight class. No split times will be recorded.

Weights
All women – starting weight approx 120kg

All men – starting weight approx 200kg
Event 2 - Fenrir Logs Log Press

Competitors will be pooled into separate groups of men/women. The log will be set up at the minimum weight, and 10kg jumps will be taken until approximately half of the competitor are eliminated. Once another half of the remaining competitor are eliminated, jumps will be reduced to 2.5kg.

The log will be loaded, and competitors will be given a chance to elect to take that weight. If they choose to take that weight, they must line up in a designated area. Upon their turn starting, they have one genuine attempt to press the log – if they are unsuccessful on the first press they may lower it to the shoulders and attempt the weight again, but they can’t lower it back to the ground – if they do so, their attempt will be over and they will be eliminated. Once a competitor has successfully pressed the log and received a ‘Down’ call, they will return to the pool of competitors and the process will continue until all competitors are eliminated.

Competitors may take as many attempts as they want prior to being eliminated, and may also skip jumps if they choose to do so. If competitors aren’t paying attention and aren’t in line to take an attempt before the weight is increase, they will miss out on that attempt but may continue.

For a successful lift to receive a ‘Down’ call, the competitor must lock the log out overhead, with elbows/shoulders directly over the body, the head ‘through’, feet in line (ie. if you split you must step in) and demonstrate control of the implement in this position. The quicker you can get to this position, the quicker your down call will be. On receiving a down call, competitors must show control of the implement all the way to the ground – they do not need to un-clean the log, but it cannot be thrown from the shoulders or overhead. Any thrown logs will result in the attempt not counting, and the competitor being eliminated.

Competitors may wear a maximum of 2 belts; one hard and one soft. These may be layered, but cannot be stacked up the torso. Knee and elbow sleeves may be worn, as well as wrist wraps. Chalk is the only substance that may be applied to the body.

This event will be won by hitting the highest weight with the lowest number of attempts – if competitors tie but one has taken 5 attempts and one has taken 2, the competitor who hit the weight on their second attempt will place higher.

Weights
All women – starting weight approx 60kg on 10″ log

All men – starting weight approx 100kg on 12″ log

Event 3 - Natural Stones

Competitors will have 75 seconds to load 6 stones in their series progressively to a barrel. Competitors must attempt each stone in order, and if they are unsuccessful with a lighter stone they will not be allowed to progress until they are successful. If a stone falls after being loaded, it must be re-loaded until the competitor can move on. In the case that a heavier stone has been loaded prior to the lighter stone falling, the competitor may continue on.

Competitors may wear a maximum of 2 belts; one hard and one soft. These may be layered, but cannot be stacked up the torso. Knee and elbow sleeves may be worn. Chalk is the only substance that may be applied to the body.

The event will first be scored by the heaviest stone lifted in the fastest time.
