The classes for this year's competition are:The weighted bar is placed on two racks and the lifter must take the bar, assisted or unassisted, until the chief referee commands ‘start’ (this occurs when the arms are fully extended and locked). The lifter must then lower it to his or her chest, hold it motionless - called a pause - and then press the bar upwards evenly to arms’ length where both arms should be locked out simultaneously until the chief referee issues the command ‘rack’. The three judges will then indicate a successful or unsuccessful lift by illuminating white or red lights.
