  • Participant must get a lift-off from a spotter.

  • The bar must start at a full lockout of the triceps, lowered to contact of the chest and back up, locking out the triceps.
  • A missed rep is when there is no contact to the chest or a full lockout with the triceps.
  • A complete pause at the contact of the chest is NOT necessary.
  • Failure is defined as the participant can no longer complete a full bench press as defined below.
  • Failure is also defined as the competitor requires assistance to rack the bar.
