2. If you’re competing in the squat, then you’ll warm-up prior to the start of your flight in the warm-up room. Then you’ll head over to the staging area and wait for your turn to execute your 3 attempts.⁣⁣
⁣⁣
3. Once all squats are over, there’ll be a break prior to the start of the bench press. If there’s only 1 flight, then it’s a 𝟐𝟎-𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐞 break and if there are 2 or more flights, then it’s a 𝟏𝟎-𝐦𝐢𝐧𝐮𝐭𝐞 break.⁣⁣
