POWERLIFTING COMPETITION

17th April 2022


Our annual Powerlifting Competition, perfect for first timers wanting some competition experience or seasoned athletes looking to break personal bests. We make our competitions 'lifter focussed' ensuring that you, as the lifter, get the attention you deserve when you step on that platform!

That’s a potential 16 awards being awarded at the end of the day!

These are huge competitions with plenty of spectators making noise to support each and every lifter.

No singlets are required, however, if you choose to wear one you absolutely can do!

The competition will be fast paced and supportive.

The competition will be FULL when we reach 40 entries.

We are looking at an 8am-9.00am weigh in on the day, with the first flight lifting off at 10am

Depending on how many people enter effects how many flights there will be, alongside how many people there will be in each flight.

It is £25 per entry.

BASIC COMPETITION RULES:

The Squat is first. We will be using a Rogue Ohio Power Bar. After removing the bar from the rack and establishing the starting position, you must wait for the "Squat" command. Sit into the squat and return to the starting position. Once there, wait for the "Rack" command before returning the bar to the rack. Tight clothing and a T-shirt must be worn. A  lifting belt, Neoprene knee sleeves, wrist wraps and a singlet are all allowed but not mandatory. Failure to return to the starting position unassisted, or any downward movement of the bar will result in a no lift. Three attempts will be taken and the highest completed squat will be added to your total.


The Bench Press is second. We will be using the Rogue Ohio Power Bar. After removing the bar from the rack and establishing the starting position , you must wait for the "Start" command. Lower the bar to the chest and wait for the "Press" command before pressing the bar and returning to the starting position. Once there, wait for the "Rack" command before returning the bar to the rack. Tight clothing and a T-shirt must be worn. A lifting belt, wrist wraps and a singlet are all allowed but not mandatory. Failure to lock out the elbows, the buttocks coming off the bench or the feet moving will result in a no lift. Three attempts will be taken and the highest completed Bench Press will be added to your total.


Finally, it's the Deadlift. We will be using the Rogue Ohio Power Bar. After approaching the bar, pick the weight up and stand with the knees and hips locked with the shoulders back. Once locked out, you must wait for the "Down" command before placing the bar back on the floor, without dropping it. Tight clothing must be worn and the shins must be covered. Chalk, talc, a lifting belt and singlet are allowed but not mandatory. Failure to lockout the Deadlift or hitching/ramping will result in a no lift. Three attempts will be taken and the highest completed Deadlift will be added to your total.


The highest completed total in each weight class wins!


This is an ideal opportunity for any first timers looking to get some competition experience, or any intermediate lifters looking to increase their total in front of a crowd.

We are looking forward to seeing you all there!!
