Competition Details

The competition will consist of Squat, 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. 

The Winner of for events and totals will be determined the Wilks score. *Please note that the number of winners will be awarded based on the total number of competitors.
