Any student/member who has a sound background in Olympic Lifting is encouraged to test out and utilize the Olympic Lifting platforms. In order to pass the practical test, one must correctly perform a Front Squat, Overhead Squat, Deadlift, Clean & Jerk and Snatch as evaluated by a RecSports Professional Fitness Staff member. Each test takes approximately 15 minutes to complete.
Males have to complete the lifts with 95 pounds, but can decrease the weight to as low as 75 pounds on the snatch and overhead squat. Females have to complete the lifts with 55 pounds, but can decrease to as low as 35 pounds on the snatch and overhead squat.
If additional test outs are necessary, reach out to Yurgen Panzhin, Coordinator for Fitness, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
