judging
Judging
  • There are 3 judges
  • A light system is used to judge good/bad lifts
  • 3 red lights (bad), and 3 white lights (good)
  • Each judge has a clicker to light up either a red or white light
  • The lifter must get at least 2 white lights for the lift to be considered a good lift
  • When a lifter has a bad lift (or “no lift”), the weight for that attempt is a zero
rules and what the judges look for

All lifts are performed under a judge’s instruction

  • The judge will give 3 orders:
    • “Begin”
    • “Lift”
    • “Rack it”
  • Failure to comply with the judge’s commands result in a “no lift”
