T Nation

Virtual Meet

This sounds interesting. They started with PL, but this weekend was their first OL meet.

That is interesting, I’ve signed up just now.

See who on T-Nation can walk the walk.

I think this is an interesting concept, regardless of whether its for OL or PL, but why not just sign up for a real meet and compete there.

Judging would be more accurate (cameral angles can do wonders for Squat depth), spotting would be safer, and there’s no real comparison to lifting on your own vs. lifting at an actual meet.

That would be walking the walk.

Ye, I know what you mean.

There are quite a few rules that I have read so far.

What do you think of the Military Bench press to mix things up from the good old fashioned regular bench press?

You’re absolutely right, nothing beats the real thing. But the ease of entry into the competitive lifting world is the big plus for this one. Especially for beginners that aren’t sure if they are good enough to compete, this provides an inexpensive alternative to the real thing.

Whether it is PL or OL, in Ontario, the cost is:

  • Club registration fee - $40/year
  • athlete registration fee - $60/year
  • entry fee - $30-50/meet
  • travel/accomodation costs

I saw it a good while ago, it’s a really cool concept.
