My gym, Aggressive Strength and Conditioning will be teaming up with Northern Virginia RAW powerlifting federation to put on a raw powerlifting meet january 28th.
This will be our first meet. We will have a monolift for squats and a Texas squat bar. We will also be using a Texas deadlift bar for deads.
The meet will be full power, push/pull or bench only. Equipment allowed are wrist wraps, knee wraps and belt.
weigh ins will be at 9 a.m. followed by a rules meeting. Lifting will begin around 10.
Instead of doing the typical crappy trophies you get at most competitions, I plan to have a professional photographer tha will take pics of all lifters in action and will make up a certificate that will have the lifters Name, weightclass, Division, Date, Weightlifted, Placing in competition with a pic of one of their best lifts in the center. we will then frame it and it will be given as awards. The photographer will also be printing out larger pics all lifts that can be purchased for a nominal fee.
This is a sanctioned meet and all lifts will be sent to powerlifting watch as well as powerlifting USA.
An official entry form will be up on powerlifting watch next week. I will also provide a link once it becomes available.
Feel free to PM me or ask here, if you have any questions.
