TYM 2015: Choosing Rx or Scaled

The following table will help you decide if you should compete in the Rx or Scaled division.  If you can do multiple reps of the following movements at the Rx weights, then you should register for Rx.  The Scaled division is ONLY for those who cannot do reps at the Rx weight.  If you are registering as Scaled, but cannot do multiple reps for any or all of the movements, don’t worry, you can choose whatever weight you want in order to complete safely.  Dropping below the Scaled weight removes an athlete from medal contention.

By design, the team competition is for 2 men and 2 women.  However, any configuration of athletes can compete as well as drop the weight below the Scaled weight as needed to compete safely.  Doing so removes that team from medal contention.
Where it says “(1 or more teammates)” under a movement, only 1 teammate needs to be able to do that movement at the designated weight, but the more teammates that can do it, the better.
