At the call of “3-2-1-GO” the athlete will pick the bar up from the ground and complete 6 Thrusters, after 6 Thrusters the athlete will proceed to the rig and perform 6 Toes To Bar and then repeat the couplet for as many reps as possible in the 6 minutes.
Immediately at the end of 15.1a, 15.1b will commence and the athlete will have 3 minutes to Establish a 1RM Snatch.
Thrusters: Squat clearly below parallel and drive bar up to full extension in one movement. Elbows, shoulders, hips and knees must be fully extended at the top of the movement.
Toes to Bar: At the bottom of the movement the athlete must hang with arms fully extended and both feet must be visibly behind the vertical line of the bar. At the top of the movement both feet must visibly touch the bar WITHIN the athletes hands.
Snatch: This is a “Snatch Anyhow” meaning that both a Power Snatch and a Squat Snatch will be allowed. The bar must be pulled in one movement from the floor to over head and there can be no change in direction (as in a clean and jerk) for the rep to be counted. At the top of the movement the athlete must stand tall with both feet next to each other and a fully extended body (same as in the Thruster). Hang snatches are not allowed. –
Clips must be used at all times on both sides of the barbell.
They have proudly hosted the best athletes and teams that South Africa has had to offer, stand podium since our competition began in 2011.
"We now look forward to having the best in this country measure their capacity against some of the best in the world.
We believe that a fitness test must have an unknown and unknowable factor. In the past, Fittest in Cape Town has tested different outdoor venues such as beach workouts and other creative ways of testing the athletes abilities to find the truly fittest in the field each year."
