The Bacon Beatdown 2019
Single Unders: A standard single under. Jump and pass the rope underneath your feet once before landing. Mute Sports Calf Ropes will be used for Beginner, Piglet, and Little Piglet divisions, and will be provided at the event. They are heavy. You may practice with them at the Mute tent before the event.
Double Unders: A standard double under. Jump and pass the rope underneath your feet twice before landing. Rx, Masters, Intermediates, and Teens must provide their own rope. Elites will use Heavy Ropes provided by Mute Sports. There will be two different sizes available at the event, and they will be distributed at the gate prior to your heat. You may practice with them at the Mute tent before the event.
Deadlifts: A standard deadlift. Lift starts from the ground, pick it up, stand to full lockout of knees and hips with shoulders clearly behind the bar. When returning the bar to the ground for a second rep, you may not actively punch the bar into the ground with bent elbows. If the bounce of the bar is eliminating half the lift, that’s cheating the stimulus, and it will be no rep.
-Switch Grip or Clean Grip are allowed.
-No ‘Punching’ on the return
-Lockout: Knees, Hips, shoulders behind bar.
GHD Sit-Ups: Athletes must lock both feet into the GHD, lean back and touch the ground with BOTH HANDS, then sit up and touch the foot pad with BOTH HANDS, completing one rep. You can stand up, get up and walk around, etc, for a rest, but you must lock in and start at the top for every rep.
-If you’re short, you will be provided a pad so you can touch.
-Adjustment of the GHD is up to you, and must be done before the event starts.
AbMat Sit-ups: The athlete will have an abmat under the small of their back. Lie down, touch the ground behind your head with both hands, then sit up until the shoulders pass the hips (90 degrees). Touching the feet/ground is not necessary.
Event flow, team specifications:
All movement standards are the same as listed for individuals.
Teams will have one athlete working, two resting, at all times. You may switch whenever you would like by running back to the start mat. When the working athlete reaches the start mat, a new athlete may go out to work, in any order.
