2018 Omaha Strengthlifting Challenge
April 14, 2018 @ 6:30 am - 5:00 pm CDT$55
The Omaha Strengthlifting Challenge is back for 2018 (the meet formerly known as the Starting Strength Challenge), and we invite you to be a part of it!
This is a strength meet where the contested lifts will be the squat, press, and deadlift, which differs from a powerlifting meet. There is no bench press. Instead, you will peform the standing press. Deadlifts must be done conventionally with the feet inside of the hands. You do not weigh-in prior to the meet. Instead, you weigh out after your final deadlift attempt. A full set of rules can be found here:
The Omaha Strengthlifting Challenge will be held under the sanction of the US Strengthlifting Federation (USSF). Competing in a USSF meet requires an annual membership, and you can purchase your membership here:
Our 2017 USSF spring and fall meets were enjoyable and efficient affairs, and we look forward to this one running just as well. Your meet entry fee includes an exquisitely designed and crafted shirt, and you – as the stylish wearer of said shirt – will undoubtedly be the envy of all your friends. Don’t miss out (shirt guaranteed only if lifters register by March 24th). In addition, there will be prizes for the overall winners of the Omaha meet (calculated via the Wilks formula).
Registration runs from 01/16/2018 – 04/07/18, and there are early, regular, and late registration rates, so register soon!
