Hot ‘N’ Heavy Non-Sanctioned Weightlifting Meet
Competition by: Bridge & Tunnel Barbell Club July 13th
This is a non-sanctioned weightlifting meet. We will be scoring by the Sinclair Formula (aka what you lift compared to what you weigh). Each lifter will be allowed 3 attempts at the Snatch and Clean & Jerk.
USAW rules will apply (no press-outs!) Women will lift in the morning; Men will lift after our lunch break. Weigh in times will be announced as sessions fill up. Each session will have a maximum of 15 lifters. You do not have to wear a singlet nor be a member of USAW to lift in this event. However, we must be able to see your joints (elbows, knees) clearly to determine lockout). Lifters will lift in the order of their opening lift; if you follow yourself we will allow a 2 minute break between lifts. Opening lifts must be declared no later than July 1st.
