Step up rules


Box Step up rules

Competitors must first pick up their dumbells from the top of the box and they will need to replace them there after they have completed the exercise.

The box step must be 14 inches high +/- half an inch.

To count as a step up both feet must be fully on top of the flat part of the box with no part of the heel hanging over the edge. 

The competitor must stand near to vertical, not bent over at the hips, on the top of the box with hips above the ankles and not excessively leaning back.

A lean back of more than 10 degrees will mean the repetition will not count.

No jumping is allowed which means one foot must either be in contact with the floor or the box at all times.

Feet must not pass over the sides of the box during the step up or step down phase
