Description

This Spring, Starting Strength Coaches in the US will be organizing a combined strengthlifting meet for the same weekend in April. Starting Strength Coaches across the US will hold a combined strength meet on the same weekend in April. Gardiner Athletics is again a part of it. Not only will you get to compete against the lifters that attend your local meet, but your results will be compared to the competitors from all the other locations. The contests will be held in the following cities:

  • Atlanta, GA
  • Chicago, IL
  • Gardiner, NY
  • Gig Harbor, WA
  • Long Island City, NY
  • Oakland, CA
  • Omaha, NE
  • Wichita Falls, TX.

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 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. Instead, you weigh out after your final deadlift attempt. A full set of rules can be found here. The Starting Strength Challenge will be the first combined meet held as part of the newly formed US Strengthlifting Federation (USSF). Meets held under the USSF sanction in 2017 will serve as qualifying contests for a national competition to be held in January 2018 at a location to be determined. For the first year, successfully making a total in one of our meets will qualify you for the national competition. Previous competitions have been enjoyable and efficient affairs and I am looking forward to this one running just as well.
