Team Rohr Powerlifting
You coach a team of 20 lifters, competing at the State Meet. There is no limit to how many lifters you can list on the official team roster because only the team's 10 best scores will make up the total team points. If the team roster has less than 10 lifters, a single lifter can score points twice by being in 2 divisions (Open and Masters or Full Power and Bench Only). If a team has 10 or more lifters, a single lifter can only score once. Mathematically, it would be detrimental to the team points to list more than your top 9 lifters, entered in two divisions. While beneficial to the team points, this would mean leaving over half of your athletes off of the official team roster. Official rosters will be listed on the event website, in the lifters guide and in the state meet program.
- Do you include all of your team members or only the top 9?
You are low enough when the top surface of the legs at the hip joint are lower than the top of the knees. It has nothing to do with hamstrings being parallel to the ground or any other factor. The only thing that matters are the two points mentioned above. Many newer lifters think they are squatting deep enough when they are actually high.
