  • What if my partner is heavier than I am?
    • You’re partner has it easy.  You should get stronger, find a different partner, or don’t do the comp.
  • Are they power cleans or squat cleans?
    • Your choice
  • Isn’t the original Linda done with squat cleans?
    • Again, you’re welcome to do squat cleans
  • Are co-ed teams allowed?
    • Yes
  • Is there a separate division for women, co-ed, masters, scaled, scaled masters co-ed?
    • No
  • If the winning team takes the entire registration proceeds, and assuming credit card transaction fees and the time you are putting in, isn’t it costing you money to hold this event?
    • Yes.  Keep that in mind when you get upset that your volunteer judge just no repped you.
  • What if I can’t do double unders?
    • This is the comp for you
  • My elbows don’t fully extend when I bench press, you cool with that?
    • Nope.  Find a different comp that allows partial ROM.
  • What if I have more questions?
