Test 2 Movement Standards
For complete movement standards please see “Clean (Squat Clean)” and “Shoulder to Overhead” in the International Functional Fitness Federation’s Movement Standards Document located at: https://functionalfitnessfederation.org/sport/2017-movement-standards/. For convenience the following abbreviated standards are outlined below:
The squat clean requires the athlete to catch the bar in the bottom of the squat with the barbell in the front rack position. The athlete supports a barbell or other object in the front-rack position, passes through the bottom of the squat with the crease of the hips below the knees, then comes to a stand demonstrating vertical extension of the hips, and knees with the bar still in the front jack position.
For the Shoulder to Overhead, the athlete must start with the barbell in the rack position and end supporting the barbell overhead in a controlled manner with full extension of the elbows, hips, knees, and shoulders. The feet must be in line with each other at the end of the repetition before the barbell is lowered.
Test 2 Special Regulations
- The repetitions must be touch and go. This means that resting on the floor longer than a “tap” of the barbell on the ground is NOT allowed.
- The barbell will start empty.
- Each repetition of the squat clean must be performed in one smooth motion. A deadlift + a hang squat clean is not allowed.
- The athlete MAY rest with the barbell in the front rack position
- The athlete MAY NOT put the barbell in the back rack position to rest
- The athlete MAY NOT remove their hands from the barbell at any time during the 3 repetitions, otherwise that attempt will not count. For clarity, this means if the athlete chooses to trap the bar in their hips to rest, they MAY NOT remove their hands from the barbell while in this position.
- The athlete must show a change in direction between the final clean and the jerk (i.e. you cannot thruster the final repetition). You must finish the clean then perform a dip before going into the jerk.
- Any shoulder to overhead variation coming from the front rack is acceptable (i.e. shoulder press, push press, push jerk, split jerk, squat jerk, etc).
- You MAY NOT perform your jerk from the back rack position
- You must stay on the platform for the entirety of the lift for the complex to count.
- You must drop the bar in front of you after the jerk for the bar to count. The complex will not count if you drop the bar behind you.
