CTB Pull-up / Pull-Up - Dead-hang, kipping or butterfly pull-ups are all allowed as long as all the requirements are met. The arms must be fully extended at the bottom.  For CTB, the chest must clearly come into contact with the bar. For women's RX and men's scaled, touching the chest is not required, but the chin must break the horizontal plane of the bar.

Jumping Pull-ups - A standard height from which to jump will be set for each person.  Standing straight-up and arms full extended overhead, the person's wrist must fully clear the top of the pull-up bar.  When starting each jumping pull-up, bend the knees in order to squat down slightly and fully extend arms.  Jump and pull the chin above the horizontal plane of the bar.

Front Squats - The hip crease must be below the knee at the bottom.  The hips and knees must fully open at the top with the barbell racked on the front of the shoulders.  You can squat clean the first rep from the floor.

Shoulder to Overhead - Each rep begins with the barbell on the shoulders and finishes with the weight fully locked out overhead and over the middle of the body.  A shoulder press, push press, push jerk or split jerk may be used, as long as the elbow, shoulder, hips and knees are fully extended, and the bar finishes directly over the body with the feet in line.

Rope Climbs - Athlete must climb to the 12' foot mark and touch the tape with their hand and control yourself down to the floor.  Rope climbs may be performed legless.  For men's Rx, each rep must start from a seated position on the floor and the person must pull themselves up with their arms to standing position.  Once standing you may jump up to grab the rope and complete the rope climb to 12'.  A running start is not permitted.

Standing Rope Climbs - Athletes start lying on their backs with the rope in their hand and their feet directly underneath the rope.  Without moving their feet the athlete must pull them-self to fully standing (body at 90 degree angle) and then when lower themselves back down.  If you move your feet or let go off the rope at any point on the way up or down, the rep does not count.
