Deadlift does not have a start command. The lifter is able to start their lift when the Chief Referee announces that the “Bar is Loaded”. The lifter then has one minute to commence the lift from the time that the Chief Referee makes the announcement.
As the lifter stands erect, upon the completion of the lift the knees shall be locked in a straight position and the shoulders back.
The Chief Referee’s signal shall consist of a downward movement of the arm and the audible command “Down”. *Note: the signal will not be given until the bar is held motionless and the lifter is in the apparent finished position.
Any rising of the bar or deliberate attempt to do so will count as an attempt. Once the attempt has begun, no downward movement is allowed until the lifter reaches the erect position with the knees locked.
For the safety of the spotters/loaders the Referees may deem it a no lift if the lifter drops the bar at any point when or when returning it to the floor at the end of the lift.
