- Axle Bar Squat: Athletes will begin by placing the bar on the upper back and shoulders. The athlete will lift the weight off the rack and walk out with the weight. The athlete may step out forward or backward. Once the weight is walked out the athlete will take a shoulder-width stance and wait for a squat command. The athlete then lowers the weight all the way down until the weight reaches the blocks. The athlete then lifts the weight back up to a full lockout. The athlete will then wait for a squat command and once again repeat the squat. The athlete is provided 60 seconds from the time of the first squat command to perform as many reps as possible. Each athlete’s squat depth is decided by the meet director during the check-in process. Rack heights and block heights will be set at that time and can’t be altered by anyone other than the meet director. Allowed items include chalk, 1 belt*, knee wraps, or knee sleeves. Athletes may use squat briefs and compression shorts, but may not use squat suits. Singlets are not required.

The athlete that completes all 3 lifts with the fastest time will be ranked and scored the highest. Athletes will have 60 seconds to complete the event.
