“THE DOWN AND DIRTY CLEAN LADDER”
Teams will face a series of progressively heavier pre-loaded barbells, cleaning each bar once successfully before ascending the ladder to the next bar. You can power clean or squat clean the bar, the only requirement is the clean starts with the weight on the floor and finishes with the barbell in the front-rack position. The barbell must come up to the shoulders, with the hips and knees fully extended and the elbows in front of the bar. A muscle clean, power clean, split clean, or squat clean may be used, as long as the barbell comes up to the rack position on the shoulders.
At 3-2-1 go! both athletes will have 30 seconds to complete a successful lift. There will be a 10 second transition to allow the team to move to the next pre-weighted barbells. You may not touch the barbell during the 10-second transition. Each athlete will have their own barbell and will work side by side with their partner until one can no longer complete a successful lift. The remaining partner will continue up the ladder until he/she can no longer complete a successful lift.
Athletes will be scored by the combined TOTAL weight of the last successful lift by each partner on the ladder.
If one or both athletes on the team completes the ladder, both athletes immediately proceed to the ski erg at the end of the ladder for max meters inside a :30 second window.
