Push/Pull Meet Commands and Rules

posted on April 5, 2023

Hello everyone! We have our annual Push/Pull meet approaching on April 23rd at 10am. Here are the rules if you are unfamiliar with how a meet is typically ran.


Bench Press Rules-

  1. Feet must remain in contact with the floor during the bench press.
  2. Butt must remain on the bench during the bench press.
  3. Lifter will receive 3 commands. The first command will be the “start” command where the lifter will start the descent of the lift and pause on their chest to wait for the 2nd Then the lifter will receive the 2ndcommand of “press” where the lifter will then press the weight off their chest and lockout their elbows. Lastly, the lifter will receive their 3rd command of “rack” where the lifter will then rack the weight back into the bench hooks.


Deadlift Rules-

  1. Lifter will assume deadlift position of conventional or sumo.
  2. Lifter will then lift the weight off the floor until they lock their knees at the top with their shoulders back. The lifter will then receive the “down” command where the lifter will then lower the weight back to the floor safely.

After each lift is done, 3 referees will give you a good lift or a bad lift. A bad lift will signify the color red and a good lift will signify the color white. If the lifter receives 2/3 good lifts from the referees then the lifter has a good lift and the weight will count towards their total. A lifter will receive a bad lift if they do not follow any of the rules stated above or does not complete the lift.


We hope to see you all there!
