The Ultimate Lift off is less than 3 weeks away!  Whether you are going to compete or volunteer, put September 9th on your calendar! 



Here's how the event works gonna work:

  • You will have 20 minutes to find your maximum snatch and clean and jerk.
  • Changed this year: You will have 18 minutes to find your maximum back squat, bench press, and deadlift
  • You will have 3 attempts at your heaviest weight for each lift.
  • You will perform all the lifts in order: snatch, clean and jerk, back squat, bench press, and deadlift. To participate in the competition, you must attempt all five lifts.
  • Heats will start every 20 minutes. If you are late, you cannot lift.  No exceptions.
  • Your score will be calculated by Sinclair for your Oly lifts and Wilks formula (each lift by pounds lifted to body weight) for your power lifts. (New this year: All athletes will weigh in at the beginning of the day)
  • A complete list of rules (including the requirements for each lift) will be posted Friday in the gym along with the start list.
