RULES:

Squat (powerlifting bar):
Unrack the barbell, get into in position (knees & hips locked out) and await the “START”-signal. Squat until your thighs are at least parallel to the floor (hip below the top of the knee). Stand up til your hips are fully locked out and wait until given the “RACK”-signal.

Bench Press (powerlifting bar):
Unrack and await the “START”-signal. Lower the barbell to your chest, make a distinct stop/pause and await the “PRESS”-signal. Press until your elbows are locked out and await the “RACK”-signal then rack the bar.
Your buttocks must be in contact with the bench and the feet flat on the floor at all time. An exaggerated back-bend that significantly reduces the range of movement is not allowed. Excessive feet movement is not allowed. “Suicide” grip is not allowed. Your index fingers can’t be outside the 81 cm marks.

Deadlift (powerlifting bar):
Await the “START”-signal before you grab the bar. Pull the barbell into an upright position with your knees and hips locked out and await the “DOWN”-signal. You’re not allowed to drop the bar from the upright position, you must lower it to the floor; otherwise the lift won’t count. “sumo”-style is allowed, but you must keep your grip on/within the knurling (no fingers on the blank/chromed part of the bar).

Overhead Press (weightlifting bar):
Unrack the barbell, get into in position (knees locked out and the barbell on the chest) and await the “START”-signal. Press until your elbows are locked out and await the “DOWN”-signal. “Suicide” grip is not allowed. Your index fingers can’t be outside the 81 cm marks.

Bench Row (weightlifting bar) (Seal Row):
Grab the bar and await the “START”-signal. Pull the barbell from the floor until it touches the base of the bench; if you don’t go all the way up, the lift doesn’t count. You must hold on to the barbell until it’s back on the floor or it will not count. Your little fingers must be within the 91 cm marks.
