WEIGHT CLASSES

OPEN/ MASTERS / ADAPTIVE

Competitors must weigh-in under their weight class as is it listed under 90kg, under 82.5kg, etc.
For example: if you weigh in 90.0kg you will be listed as under 105kg. If you weigh in as 89.9kg you will be listed as under 90kg. The same goes for pounds.

Every competitor, no matter which class (even opens) must weigh in, this is to adjust world rankings as there is regularly a tie in Monster Totals.

Static Monsters is an international event, we will set the weight classes in both Pounds and Kilograms.

Women’s Classes:
under 52.5kg = under 115.5lbs
under 62.5kg = under 137.5lbs
under 72.5kg = under 159.5lbs
under 82.5kg = under 181.5lbs
Open

Men’s Classes:
under 70kg = under 154lbs
under 80kg = under 176lbs
under 90kg = under 198lbs
under 105kg = under 231lbs
Open

Masters and Adaptive Athletes will compete within their Weight Classes. Their Masters and Adaptive rankings come separately as well. They will receive multiple rankings as a part of the Worldwide event.

Masters Rules

Masters Class is set for anyone that turns 40 before the event. 2022’s cut-off date is the 29 of October. A competitors birth date will be required with their entry form for verification.

 

Adaptive Rules

  • Standing: Male – Female Adaptive Static Monsters
  • Same rules as above.
  • Seated: Male – Female Adaptive Static Monsters
  • Seated Deadlift – A regular flat gym bench is required. Make sure the bench is load rated for the lifters weight combined with their planned maximum deadlift. Prone Row is also an acceptable lift in this scenario. The axle is needed but the athlete may use straps if they like. To judge the Prone Row, the bar must start from a full hang, then rowed to touch the underside of the bench and then lowered to the full hang again.
  • Seated Log Lift – Minimum degree of angle on the incline is 55 Degrees.
  • No “rolling” the log into the rack position. The log must start from a stationary position from the rack of the lifter. If the competitor is rolling the log into position, then the safety bars are too high.
  • Considerations for being an Adaptive Athlete, as taken from the “Classes” section of this website:
  • For the standing division, you must have a physical disability that prevents you from safely handling the weights in the open division and/or competing evenly against athletes without any disabilities. For the seated division, you need to either have a physical disability that requires you to use a wheelchair or you meet the physical criteria for the standing division but you choose to compete in a wheelchair. For instance, if you have a prosthetic leg, you may compete in either division, depending on how you feel the prosthetic limb will hold up. If you are competing in the seated division, all athletes will be using the same wheelchair for the events. For the neuro division, you must have cerebral palsy, spina bifida, MS, or some similar condition that impairs optimal neurological function at a high enough level to put you at a disadvantage going against someone with a fully functioning nervous system.

EVENT RULES

The Log Bar Lift

  • Competitor will have 60 seconds to complete the lift after being given the go ahead from the judge/ref
  • log must be controlled back to the ground. (No Throwing of the implement). The log does not need to be returned to the chest on the descent, only controlled to the ground.
  • Any dropped lift will result in a failed lift and will not count. If you are told your lift does not count, you may attempt it again providing you still have time within your allotted 60 seconds for that particular lift
  • Each competitor has 3 attempts.
  • 60 seconds to complete the lift after the whistle blows. Lifter can continue to lift until the full 60 seconds are up.
  • Competitor nominates their opening attempt for both events at the time of checking for the event.
  • Competitor can not drop their nominated weight after a failed attempt or a completed attempt.
  • No minimum weight increase. This is due to international events crossing over to lbs or kgs.
  • No points awarded if no complete lifts are counted
  • Lift is completed when the judge calls “down”. To receive the “down” call, the lifter must have knees, hips and shoulders locked out and head “through”.
  • Competitor may change their first lift, once only, up to 5 minutes out from the start of the event, not after.
  • Competitor to nominate their second lift weight immediately after completion of their first lift
  • Competitor may change their second lift weight, once only, But it can not be lesser than the weight that is currently on the bar.
  • Competitor to nominate their third lift weight immediately after completion of their second lift
  • Competitor may change their third lift weight, twice only, but it can not be lesser than the weight that is currently on the bar.
  • If the competitor successfully locks out a rep just before the buzzer but then drops the implement in an uncontrolled way, the rep will not count.
  • Belts are allowed, an under belt and an over belt is allowed. Two belts, one above the other on the torso (equivalent to a stepped setup), is not allowed. A loop in the belt is not allowed. Nothing is allowed to be added to, or stuffed into the belt to make a shelf.
  • The log can touch, bounce off, rest on the belt during the clean.
  • chalk is allowed
  • tacky is not allowed, straps are also not allowed.
  • wraps and sleeves are allowed, including “equipped” elbow sleeves. One item per joint. IE one elbow sleeve, not multiple sleeves on the one elbow. (wraps on elbows aren’t allowed)
  • Spotter on Log Lift: if a spotter is on the log lifting event and they intervene with a lift, the log has to be reset to the ground for the lift to start again. If it is deemed that the log spotter stepped in too early, which can only be ruled by the judge, then the lifter can opt to have another 60 seconds added to their time then and there, or they can take this lift again at the end of the round of their flight. If the lifter chooses to continue during their current 60 seconds, they will not be allowed to take another 60 seconds after the round, if they fail during their current lift period.
  • The log can not be rested on the top of the head during the lift. It may however be allowed to touch the head during the upward trajectory.

The Axle Bar Deadlift (42.5 cm from the floor)

  • A conventional stance deadlift is mandatory. No Sumo stance allowed, no Jefferson deadlifts or any other variation, conventional deadlift only. Hands must be outside the knees for the entire duration of the lift.
  • Straps allowed, figure 8 straps also allowed. However they must be tight and the hands have to be around/holding the axle. A long figure 8 strap with “fingertips” being the only thing touching the bar will not be an acceptable lift.
  • Deadlift suits are allowed.
  • No Tacky allowed.
  • Each competitor has 3 attempts.
  • Competitor can not drop their nominated weight after a failed attempt or a completed attempt.
  • No minimum weight increase. This is due to international events crossing over to lbs or kgs.
