Ultimate Lift Off

Olympic Weightlifting Event

Event description

CrossFit Hayle presents the ultimate weightlifting competition bringing together the sports of olympic weightlifting and powerlifting to find the strongest pound for pound athletes on the day.

All athletes will be required to perform 5 lifts on the day;

  • Clean and Jerk
  • Snatch
  • Back Squat
  • Deadlift
  • Bench Press

The competition is aimed at athletes who want to step out on the competition floor and put their strength and technique to the test in a relaxed, fun environment whether this is their first time competing or they are a seasoned competitor in either sport.

The Ulitmate Lift Off will bring a twist to the traditional olympic weightlifting and powerlifting competition so expect the unexpected in terms of how the day will be executed. The competition will be set in three categories for both male and female;

NOVICE LIFTERS for those that have less than 9 months experience on the barbell.

INTERMEDIATE LIFTERS for those that between 9 to 24 months experience on the barbell.

ADVANCED LIFTERS for those that have over 2 years experience on the barbell.

If you are unsure of where you fall into these categories then please don't hesitate to get in touch with the CrossFit Hayle team on social media @crossfithayle or email info@crossfithayle.co.uk. The competition will be scored using ths Sinclair Coefficient to find the strongest pound for pound lifters on the day rather than total weight lifted.Please note that this competition is not linked to any governing bodies and will not lead to any qualification to higher tiered competitions however CrossFit Hayle's coaches are level 2 British Weightlifting Coaches so have a strong interest and experience in olympic weightlifting.

On sign up athletes will be required to provide all current maximum weight lifts for the 5 lifts being performed on the day, without this information you will be unable to partake on the day.

Further information will be released in the run up to competition day but refreshments will be available on the day (cash only) alongside event tees being available to preorder at a later date and limited stock available to purchase on the day.
