Testing Protocol:

Starting position for the AL is to hold the ammunition can sideways at shoulder height with both hands, handle facing away from the participant.The proper lifting technique is head up, chest elevated and lumbar curve maintained. Feet will remain shoulder-width apart or staggered in a basic-warrior stance position.The ammunition can must be lifted to a point overhead where the elbows are momentarily locked out. The ammunition can does not have to be lifted directly overhead.Once lock out is achieved, the ammunition can will be lowered to a point where the top of the can is at or below chin level. Once the ammo can is returned to this level, this counts as one repetition.To reach this level Marines may have to widen the distance between elbows. The top of the ammunition can is to remain parallel to the deck throughout the entire movement. (10) A repetition will be counted when a correct and complete overhead lift is performed.Marines are encouraged to use their legs to generate upward momentum of the ammunition can, especially when fatigued. There is no penalty if Marines choose not to use their legs. Alteration of stance during the AL is permissible.Marines are authorized to rest during the AL. The ammunition can may be held in the starting position or placed on the deck. If placed on the deck, the ammunition can will be lowered in a controlled movement and not thrown or dropped. Once lowered to the deck, no assistance can be provided when returning the ammunition can to the starting position. Proper technique will be utilized when returning to the starting position.The goal of this event is to complete as many correct and complete repetitions as possible in the 2-minute time limit.
