Power Lifting Meet

Onsite Competition for Individuals

Event description

Ballast will be hosting a NON-sanctioned epic power lifting meet for all ages. Each athlete will have the opportunity to lift to maximal weight in 3 attempts in the following categories; back squat, bench, and deadlift (in that order). We want to see everyone come out to support and see some people lift big weights. There will be a beginner and advanced division with female and male division in both. Beginners will be anyone lifting for 1-2 years and advanced will be 3+ years. Winners in each division will be determined through the Sinclair method. Weigh-ins will begin at 8:00am to 9:30am. Immediately following weigh-ins there will be an athlete briefing to go over rules for all three lifts. Please be flexible with times as we may adjust as needed. If you have any questions please email Ballast@gmail.com. Look forward to seeing all of you and watching some great competition.

Scoring: For Weight: Heavier is Better

The lift starts with the lifter standing erect and the bar loaded with weights resting on the lifter's shoulders. At the referee's command the lift begins. The lifter creates a break in the hips, bends his knees and drops into a squatting position with the hip crease (the top surface of the leg at the hip crease) below the top of the knee. The lifter then returns to an erect position. At the referee's command the bar is returned to the rack and the lift is completed.

With her or his back resting on the bench, the lifter takes the loaded bar at arm's length. The lifter lowers the bar to the chest. When the bar becomes motionless on the chest, the referee gives a press command. Then the referee will call 'Rack' and the lift is completed as the weight is returned to the rack.

In the deadlift the athlete grasps the loaded bar which is resting on the platform floor. The lifter pulls the weights off the floor and assumes an erect position. The knees must be locked and the shoulders back, with the weight held in the lifter's grip. At the referee's command the bar will be returned to the floor under the control of the lifter.
