2023 arnold amateur event rules

Fatback Farmer’s is named for Patrick “Fatback” Rodgers, the man who originally debuted the idea at 2017 America’s Strongest Man. Carry 40’, Deadlift 4 reps, Carry 40’ back, Deadlift 4 reps. Competitor starts with hands on the first set of farmer’s implement. On the “go” command, the competitor picks and carries it 40′ across the line, ensuring the front of the farmer’s implement crosses the line - specifically, the front of the plate on each implement needs to cross the plane of the front of the line. Competitor then deadlifts the implement for 4 reps, with up and down commands. After the 4th rep, competitor puts it down, turns around, and picks and carries it back 40’. After the front of the implement crosses the line, competitor then sets it down, and then deadlifts the implement for 4 more reps, with up and down commands on each rep. Unlimited drops allowed. 60 second time limit. Your score will be the total distance completed, total reps deadlifted, or time to finish the course. No split times. No touch-and-go or bounce reps on the deadlift reps - you will receive an up command once the implement comes to a complete stop.

Equipment allowed: Chalk, sleeves, belts, and briefs
Equipment not allowed: Gloves, straps, and anything sticky. Equipment will be Spider Strength Hammerhead top-loaded farmer’s implements with a 16″ pick height measured to bottom of the handle, and 30mm (1 3/16″) diameter handles. The Farmer’s is 60lbs empty.

  • Competitor starts with their hands on the implement but the implement still resting on the stand.
    On go, the competitor picks up the implement and presses away for as many reps as possible.
  • Competitors will face away from the implement.
  • Jerks, push presses, and strict press are all allowed.
  • Picking the implement off the stand, and pressing the implement, must be separate discrete movements. You may not “thruster” the implement off the stand.
  • You may set the viking press down between attempts.
  • You do not need to wait for up commands. You may go right from a catch into another press, as long as the implement does not touch the stand.
  • If the implement touches the stand on a dip, that is a no rep.
  • There are no rules against double knee bend.
  • Handles will be neutral grip, 24 inches apart.
  • As many reps as possible in 60 seconds.
  • Equipment Allowed: Chalk, sleeves, belts, gloves, wrist wraps.

Straight shot, 50’

60 second time limit.

 

Competitors will start behind a line. On “go”, competitor gets into position and starts pulling. Competitor must pull the weighted sled 50’ across the line. They begin on the judge’s command and have 60 seconds to pull the sled the full distance. Fastest time (or furthest distance) wins. 

We will have volunteers take the rope as you go. You may not leave the footboard area to pull (ie, grabbing the rope and running).

Equipment Not Allowed: Tacky, Spray Tack, Tack Towel

 

We will be using a 1.5” Jute rope. Footboards will be the same as Strongman Corporation 2022 Nationals.

Competitor attempts to load 6 odd objects of ascending weight onto the platform.

Competitors start behind a line. On go, competitor attempts to load each of the implements from lightest to heaviest. Time on each implement is taken when the implement is loaded completely on the platform and hands are off the implement.

Score is number of implements loaded and time. There will be split times for each implement.

Platform height: 44” women, 48” men.

Final objects and more specific weights are to be determined. Specific objects may include Fire Hydrants, Tires, Replica Basque Cubes, Husafell Stones, Kegs, Sandbags, Tanks, Barrels, and Atlas Stones. Specific implements and weights will be announced as
