Lockdown Lift Off

Following the reintroduction of lockdown measures in England, Lockdown Lift Off has returned with an initial three-stages to take us into mid-December.

Lockdown Lift Off 2.0 will kick off with the Snatch lift and will run from 12 noon Wednesday 18 November – 12 noon Wednesday 25 November.


Lockdown Lift Off is a free-to-enter video-based competition with lifters uploading a video of themselves completing a designated exercise to the Lockdown Lift Off webpage.

The videos will then be judged by a BWL Licensed Technical Official and given a rating out of 5 stars based on the technique displayed. The Technical Official may also leave a comment to help with any areas of improvement.

Every video will be put into an online gallery of submissions for everyone to watch. You can share your submission on social media using the hashtag #LockdownLiftOff and tagging @BritishWL in your post.

At the end of each Round all entries will be ranked by the highest weight lifted that the Technical Officials consider to be a ‘Good Lift’ and the Top 3 results in each category will be sent an e-certificate.

The club with best lifters in Lockdown Lift Off will also be recognised!


The Snatch

Lifters must submit one video with a visible clock or timer that has been continuous since weigh in. Your video may contain up to three attempts of the snatch lift, your highest successful attempt will count towards your result.

Videos must show the lifters full body at all times from the start to the end of the lift, including full overhead lockout.

Camera must be placed directly in front of the lifter and raised to approximately chest height. Videos filmed from the ground or from the side will not be accepted.

If you have a lock out issue before starting the lift show the judges your full extension, pause, then lift.

Weights will only be accepted in kilograms.

You must show all the discs on both ends of the bar after each attempt.


Dates

This round of Lockdown Lift Off opens on Wednesday 18 November at 12 noon and closes on Wednesday 25 November at 12 noon.

- More categories may be added to future Rounds of Lockdown Lift Off


Weigh in

- Lifters must weigh in wearing the same clothing and equipment (belt/straps/shoes) that they will wear to lift.

- Lifters must be fully visible when stepping onto the scale and must show the weight displayed on the scale.

- When the lifter begins the weigh in process start a timer or display clock in the weigh in area. The clock or timer must be visible in either the video or photo submission.

- Your Snatch attempts must be completed within 3 hours of your weigh in. E.g weigh in filmed at 10am, lift attempts filmed between 10am and 1pm. You may make your attempts immediately after weighing in.


Rules

Pulling straps are not allowed.

Submissions that do not include a weigh in will be rejected.

In the case of a tie the athlete that posted their video submission first will be awarded.

Videos that do not display the weights before or after the lifts will be rejected.

The results in the Lockdown Lift Off are not eligible for rankings or records.

Lifts that would be considered a ‘No Lift’ in a formal competition will still be given a star rating and feedback but won’t be included in the final rankings.

A common fault for many lifters is touching the barbell with their feet.  Remember, if you touch the barbell with your feet at any time during a competition it is an instant no-lift.  This rule does apply to Lockdown Lift Off as well!


Results

- The competition will rank every submission marked as a 'Good Lift'  in each category with highest weight winning:

- The final standings will be published within 1 week of the close of the competition

- The star rating for technique does not affect the final rankings.
