The competition is based on 3 basic exercises executed in 1rm style: Dips, Pull Ups/Chin Ups and Squats.
The Total counts
The three values of the disciplines added together give a total which is used to determine the athlete's position in the ranking. Accordingly, the total is the sum of all additional weights (barbell+weights).
The exercises should be performed in accordance with the requirements set out in the rulebook under "Competitive disciplines and their execution" or scroll down.
