Event 1:

Competitors will be called when “bar is loaded” may approach the platform. When given the whistle to begin, competitors will have 60 seconds to press the log and then the axle back and forth for a rep count in 60 seconds. Most reps wins! 

Event 2: 

Competitors will start behind a line. When given the whistle to begin, competitors will sprint 15 feet and load a sandbag to a sled. Competitors will come back to the second sandbag and load it to the sled. Competitor will then sprint back to the starting line and stand and arm over arm pull the sled to a finish line. Once the sled crosses the line, the competitor will then push the sled past the 30 foot line on the opposite side. Fastest time wins!

Event 3: 

Competitors will be called when the “bar is loaded” and approach the platform. When the “bar is loaded” call is made, competitors will be allowed to strap in to the bar and complete a lift with a down command. The setup will be a deadlift bar with tires as the first load + applicable weight. Please do not email me and ask for the height. It will be a higher than regular height deadlift, - likely around 16-18 inches. Women’s bar loads will be 10s, 25s, 45s. Men’s bar loads will be 25s, 45s.
