The competition will be a same gender partner event that will utilize many different forms of fitness, through a series of heats, to determine who the fittest two men and women are that day. Workouts will be announced no later than one week prior to the event. Sign in and registration is at 7am.

Back Squat- Flat shoes. Your hip must go below your knee joint (below 90 degrees) and then stand upright with knees locked out for rep to count.
Deadlift- Flat shoes. Socks that come to your knees to avoid getting blood and skin on the bar. Sumo or traditional stance allowed. Must stand upright with knees locked, hips and shoulders (back) in line for the rep to count.
Power Clean- Barbell must start from the ground with feet positioned underneath barbell (barbell crossing over your toes) The barbell must travel unimpeded from ground to shoulder with the barbell coming to rest on your anterior deltoids and clavicle bones. Must be standing upright with knees locked out, shoulders and hips in line for the rep to count.
How it works- Athletes will tell the judge their “first attempt weight” for each lift at the time of weigh in. This will help keep the event organized and running with as little delays as possible. The athletes will be grouped into “flights/heats” usually 6 per flight. The flights go through their lifts, go to the scoring table to register that lift, and the amount of their next attempt. Each athlete will be given only 3 attempts per lift to reach their one rep max. Highest weight counts.
Winners- Each individual lift will have a winner for each weight class and gender. The total of all lifts will be combined to give them their overall score. The female and male athlete with the highest total will be named “St Clair’s Strongest Woman” and “St Clair’s Strongest Man”
