THE DFFICIRL PRJT1ED FORCES HETTLEBELL LIFTIflG CDJTlPETITIDfl RULES

(Continued from previous page)

• Having fixed the kettlebell in the top position for one second the competitor lowers it on his forearm following the judge's command. He makes the next swing back from that position without touching the floor with the kettlebell. The competitor carries on based on the judge's count.

• The competitor is allowed to place his free hand on his hip and move his feet. However he must stop any movement when fixing the weight in the top position.

• The snatch is first performed with one arm, then, without stopping or resting, with the other. One additional swing back is allowed when switching hands.

• The snatch is not registered if the competitor failed to lock out his elbow, pressed out the kettlebell to the finish, or touched the platform with his knee or free hand.

• The exercise is completed if the participant let go of the kettlebell, stopped to rest with the kettlebell hanging, left the platform, or made more than one extra swing back when switching hands.

• In the snatch, the minimal number of repetitions must be performed with both arms.

• The initial position for the clean and jerk (C&J) is standing in front of two kettlebells. Having cleared the kettlebells from the floor the competitor cleans them to his chest with a movement of his choice. The kettlebells are then simultaneously jerked overhead in one movement. They must be fixed overhead on locked arms for one second in the position with locked legs. Then the competitor lowers the weights to his chest and starts the next movement. Jerking the kettlebells from the shoulders*** is forbidden.
