2021 CrossFit Games Quarterfinals Test 4
- For Load
- 4 rep max Front Squats
- Time Cap: 20 minutes
This event begins with the Barbell in the rack. Athletes will have 20 minutes from their declared start time to find a 4-rep-max Front Squat. Within the 20-minute window, athletes may make as many or as few attempts as they’d like. Athletes must declare the load they are attempting before starting to lift. After finishing the final lift, remove and film all plates used on the Bar to verify the loading.
Score will be the load (in lb.) of their heaviest successful set. There is no tiebreak for this event. Any increases in loading must be at least 1 lb.
Front Squat: Athletes must place collars on the outside of the plates before beginning the lift. Athletes MUST declare the load they are attempting before starting to lift. The Bar rests on the athlete’s shoulders and their elbows are in front of the Bar. The athlete’s hip crease must clearly pass below the top of the knees in the bottom position. The rep is credited when: the athlete’s hips and knees are fully extended; the Bar is resting on the athlete’s shoulders and their elbows are in front of the Bar; and the athlete’s feet are in line with one another when the athlete is viewed from profile. All four reps must be successfully completed before the athlete re-racks or drops the Bar. After finishing the final lift, remove and film all plates used on the Bar to verify loading. Athletes MAY have assistance returning the Bar to the rack in the event of a failed lift.
