USSF Fall Classic Maryland
October 27 @ 7:00 am - 6:00 pm CDT$60
The Fall Classic once again returns to Westmintser. This event has grown each year and this year will be no exception. One of the best run strength sport meets you will find. Perfect for beginners and advanced lifters alike. Join us for a day of heavy lifting and great community.
This is a strengthlifing meet. The contested lifts will be the squat, press (overhead), and deadlift, which differs from a powerlifting meet. While the are both strength sports in which similar movements are done, strengthlifting has rules (or a lack) that create quite a different type of competition. Some of these include; There is no bench press. Instead, you will perform the standing press. Deadlifts must to be done conventionally, with the feet inside of the hands. You do not weigh in prior to the meet, you weigh out after your final deadlift attempt. And best of all, Judges are not involved in the lift whatsoever. No one tells you when to squat, when to press, or when to do anything during the actual lift. A full set of rules can be found here:
The meet will be held under the sanction of the US Strengthlifting Federation (USSF). Competitors will be ranked and can qualify for nationals. A USSF membership is required to compete. Purchase membership here and bring proof of membership to the meet.
Your meet entry fee includes a lifter slot and the option to purchase a meet shirt. Overall winners of the meet will be calculated via the Wilks formula, will take home honor, pride, and a piece of memorabilia signifying your accomplishment.
