318Fitness, in Paraparaumu, is formally opening on the 18th April. During the day the NZAWA will be running a one lift event for all, the cheat curl. How do you complete the cheat curl? Read on.
The lifter will stand upright, holding a bar at arms length and resting across the thighs with the palms facing forward. The foot spacing is of the lifters choice, but the legs will be straight with the knees braced. In this position the lifter will receive the signal to start the lift. The barbell will be curled from arms length to touch the neck – upper chest configuration, in one movement. Swaying of the body, dropping of the shoulders and bending at the waist to gain momentum is allowed, but the knees must remain braced throughout the lift, and there must be no movement of the feet. On completion, the referee will signal to replace the bar.
Causes for Failure:
Starting to lift before the referees signal.
Failure to curl the bar in one continuous movement.
Failure to keep the knees braced throughout the lift, and any movement of the feet.
Lowering / replacing the bar before the referee’s signal.
