Strongman NH LLC and Arsenal Athletics have teamed up to offer Cash and Prizes for the biggest deadlift of the day in both the Men’s and Women’s Division during the 2022 United States Strongman Nationals.  

During the 2022 United States Strongman Nationals, each sub-class winner of the Lastman Standing Deadlift will have their DOTS Score calculated. ( The DOTS formulas allow a coefficient to be determined by specifying the body weight, which multiplied by the performance provided results in a DOTS point value that is comparable to that of other athletes). The highest score received between all the classes in both the Men’s and Women’s Division will receive a $1 a pound for their heaviest deadlift. 

To be eligible:

1. Must compete in the 2022 United States Strongman Nationals, and be the sub-class winner for the Lastman Standing Deadlift. In the event of a tie... The lightest athlete in the sub-class will represent the class. Body weight used will be the weight taken during check-in. 

Prizes:

1. $1 a pound for the athlete's heaviest deadlift + your choice of the Mammoth Bar used during his and her event or a $525 cash option. If an athlete elects the Mammoth Bar, he or she is responsible for shipping. 

2. The Women's Division will have a Cash and Prize value of $875 minimum; this is based off the lightest opening weight for the deadlift

3. Men’s Division will have a Cash and Prize value of $1035 minimum; this is based on the lightest opening weight for the deadlift. 

4. Division winners will be recognized during their respective awards ceremony at the conclusion of their last event.
