The Athlete must be able to lift the weight and gain a distance i.e. must be greater than the length of the implement in the case of the Strong Fit Yoke implement dimensions it must carried a greater distance that 1.5 meters.

If an Athlete is unable to lift the Yoke and get a distance score he cannot progress to the next event.

Deadlift – The same rules apply for the deadlift, if the Athlete can not complete a full Repetition with the starting weight he will not get a score and therefore not obtain a Strengthquest qualifying total.

Farmers Walk. The Athlete must be able to lift the weight and gain a distance to have a measured score i.e. must be greater than the length of the implement in the case of the StrongFit Farmers walk implement it must carried a greater distance that 1.5 meters.
