The HERCULES WEIGHTLIFTING MEETTM is open to all level of athletes over the age of 18.  All athletes are encouraged to familiarize themselves with different fitness domains; more specifically to have exposure to all Olympic and Power-lifting movements.  Divisions will be based on weight-classes rather than the traditional Rx/Scaled divisions.  Weight classes are listed and will be measured the morning of the event.  All athletes will be required to sign a waiver.

This event is for anyone that enjoys lifting and short/heavy workouts.  There will be no long met-cons or endurance workouts.  Be prepared for one rep max lifting in the Olympic lifts and possibly more.  Elements will be present from traditional Strongman movements as well as other strength domains.  Our goal with this event is to celebrate STRENGTH and POWER relative to your body weight…one of the most important aspects of physical conditioning that is difficult to test at typical fitness events.  Anyone of any strength level is able to participate.  Lift big; we’ll see you in December!!!

    • 4 competition workouts/lifts + finals for top individuals
