No double dips, so a standard push press, but no push jerks, split jerks or double leg drive of any kind. Press to lockout, judge will give a good command, weight will go back to shoulders before dipping and start over. As many reps in a 60 second time limit as possible. Athlete will face in toward the implement with a standard grip.
