Competition Details

The competition will consist of Squats, Bench and Deadlift. Competitors will receive 3 attempts per lift. Spotters will be present to ensure the safety of our participants. Each lift will also have a judge - competitors must receive a signal from the judge to signify successful completion of the lift and earn credit for the attempt. If the judge does not signal success, the attempt will not count. Participants are able to choose the lifts they want to compete in.

Prizes will be awarded to the winner of each weight class. There will also be one male and one female winner based one the Wilks score for the combined weight lifted in all three lifts.
