Tables for Rank…
Can women attempt their Rank 1 on doubles?
Yes, in either 5 or 10 minutes. Please see the above table.
Are the test sets 5 or 10 minutes for males?
Yes, 5 or 10 minutes. Reps are according to the tables above, more rpm in 5 min than 10 etc.
Is it 2 points for double bells?
No, 1 point per rep on double bells.
Is it any bell size?
Yes, as long as you can hit Rank 1 with the weight. Eg male Jerk, 5 min sets start at 20kg, 10 min sets start at 16kg. Therefore, 16kg Jerk you would have to hit the reps for 10min set eg 150-180 reps depending on weight.
