Powerlifting Competition

POWERLIFTING COMPETITION

18th OCTOBER 2020


**UPDATE**

THE COMP IS BACK ON!!

Our annual Powerlifting Competition is going to be held on Sunday 18th October 2020.


As all gyms reopen on 25th July, this gives every competitor at least 12 weeks of training to prepare for the competition


For those also looking to compete in our annual max deadlift competition in December, this provides an 8 week break between the events


Everyone who had entered our original powerlifting competition in April has automatic entry to the new comp date in October, so there is nothing else for you to do, and the competition is already full!


We understand that some people may have holidays planned for the 18th October, so if you have entered the competition but cannot attend, please let us know as soon as possible, so we can offer your space to our growing reserves list!
