If you could design a new lifting competition-what lifts would you include and or what rules would you add?
I would have the following
- Bottom Position Squat
- Two Hand Anyhow-(from the floor to overhead)
- Deadlift-hands have to be outside of legs
I would give nice medals rather than trophies (easier to display, they dont break, cheaper for the promoter)
I would allow 7 total attempts, spread out however you want, ie, you could take 4 squat attemps, 1 Two Hand anyhow and then 2 deadlifts
would not allow late entries
would have less weight classes
would give out annual leadership awards for those athletes who donate time at their local high school, or any other incentives to people who give back.
at the state level and below, trophies would be given out AFTER the auditorium is cleaned up, ie, everyone pitches in and helps, like it should be any other thoughts, comments, opinions?
