Pump Details
An athlete will reduce their run time by 30 seconds for each successful lift (maximum 30 reps) which will allow a runner to reduce their run time by 15 minutes based on 30 reps (max). Minimum age of 18. A runner's time will be based on how many times he/she can bench press their weight.
No bench press warm-up will be provided. Body weight will be rounded to nearest 5 pound increment (weigh in with shoes, shorts and shirt required). 

Lift starts with the bar in the extended position.
Feet must remain in contact with the floor during the lift (no hooking bench support with feet/legs). Bar must touch the chest and be fully extended on each press; stopping terminates the lift. No
bouncing bar off chest. Body (shoulder and rear) must stay in contact with bench during lifts. If necessary, plates may be placed under lifter's feet. No belts, wraps or lifting suits.

We look forward to seeing you!
