Studio 410’s first “FarmStrong” competition is an unsanctioned, casual meet where you can set new Personal Records and help raise money to send our Studio 410 Powerlifting team to Winnipeg for the CPU Nationals this year. You’ll also vie for one of four 1st place prizes! These will be awarded to the top man and top woman in the Open Division (placement based on Wilks formula) as well as Master’s division (40+ years old, placement based on Wilks + Age Coefficient – based on age on meet day).
Lifting singlets are NOT required, and your best Farm Strong costume is encouraged.
A lifter’s knees must be visible (to judge lockout). Tall socks that cover the shins are REQUIRED. Shoes are not required. Standard “raw” powerlifting accessories are allowed (belt, knee/elbow sleeves, wrist wraps, etc), but assistive gear (Squat/DL Suits, briefs, knee wraps, sleeves made of wrap material, etc) is not allowed.
Since we’re all FarmStrong, the meet will be performed with a regular 45lb bar and metal plates. Nothing fancy, nothing calibrated. Just you vs. iron! There will be pound-to-kilo conversion charts available in the warmup area as well as the scorer’s table.
Each lifter will be granted 3 attempts in a standard “Round Robin” flight arrangement. Opening attempts will be given at weigh-in and can be changed until 5 minutes before a lifter’s flight. Second and third attempts must be given to the scorer’s table within 60 seconds of completion of the previous lift. A lifter may not reduce their attempt weight and can increase their weight by 1kg increments only. ONLY third attempts may be changed, up until the bar has been loaded, and up to two changes can be made. Although this is a casual meet, we will follow IPF rules.
