Tickets purchased via IronPodium will be $25.  This pre-sale price will end on May 24th.  The tickets can be picked up at will-call on the morning of the event when the doors open to the public.  Tickets will also be available on the day of the show for $30.  Ages 10-16 will be $20 and kids under 10 are FREE.  There will be a parking charge by the venue as well.

QUALIFYING FOR NATIONALS:

If you qualify in a specific DIVISION and CLASS (LW, MW, HW, SHW) then you may register to compete in either of the two weight cut-offs within that class. Example: You qualify as a 242 HW male. You may compete as a 242 or 275 HW. You MAY NOT go down to a MW. You would have to re-qualify as a MW. If, however, you qualify as a 220 MW male, you may compete as a 198 MW. If you need to move up to another weight class, such as a HW going to SHW, that is acceptable.

Top 3 in each open class will receive an invite to USS Pro International Finals.

Top 1 in each open overall class receives an Overall Belt and $1,000 CASH.

Top 1 in each teen division with three or more competitors receive $500 CASH provided by USS.

1. CIRCUS DUMBBELL – SLATER MONSTER BELLS

Equipment Allowed:  Chalk, Wrist Wraps, Elbow Sleeves, Knee Sleeves, Warmer Shorts, One Soft Belt, One Hard Belt, Competition Grip Shirt

Time Limit: 60 seconds

Scoring: Max Reps

On the start command of the judge, the athlete will have 60 seconds to complete as many clean and press each rep as possible.  The bell can be cleaned with two hands, but the supporting hand must be removed before the athlete begins the press.  The judge will give a down command for a good rep. If a down command is not given and the athlete drops the bell, no rep is given.  A down command will be given when the athlete has pressed the bell overhead and has a locked elbow, is standing straight up and down, squared feet, control of the implement, and looking at the judge.  If any athlete has an elbow lockout issue, it is their responsibility to notify the judge before the event on their turn.  Once the athlete gets a down command, they must have the bell touch the floor before beginning the next press attempt.  The bell can be dropped overhead but MUST be done with control and guided to the floor.  A “tree drop” will result in a ZERO for the event.  Please respect the equipment.  The bell must be dropped on the stall mats.

 

2.  YOKE WALK

Equipment Allowed: Chalk, Wrist Wraps, Elbow Sleeves, Knee Sleeves, Knee Wraps, Warmer Shorts, One Soft Belt, One Hard Belt, Competition Grip Shirt

Time Limit: 60 seconds

Distance: 50 feet down, 50 feet back

Scoring: Distance + Time

The athlete will get set in the yoke. On the start command of the judge, the athlete will pick up the yoke and carry it 50 feet down.  Once the tip of the yoke crosses the line, the athlete will drop the yoke, turn around, re-pick the yoke, and carry it 50 feet back.  The entire implement must cross the finish line on the way back before time stops.  If the athlete does not finish the total run in 60 seconds, a distance will be taken.  Athlete has unlimited drops.  A slide penalty of 5 seconds will be given to anyone who slides the yoke.

 

3.  DEADLIFT

Equipment Allowed: Chalk, Wrist Wraps, Elbow Sleeves, Knee Sleeves, Warmer Shorts, One Soft Belt, One Hard Belt, Competition Grip Shirt, Straps, Deadlift Suits, Deadlift Briefs

Time Limit: 60 Seconds

Scoring: Max Reps

The athlete will start standing behind the barbell.  On the start command of the judge, the athlete will strap into the barbell (if using straps) and begin pulling.  Judges will be giving an up-and-down command.  No touch-and-go reps.  Athletes will be given a down command once a good rep is completed. Judges are looking for shoulders back, hips through, knees locked.  If the bar is dropped before the down command, no rep will be given.  If the bar is lifted before the up command, no rep will be given.  No finger-tipping the bar while using straps.  Keep your thumbs in contact with the bar.  Deliberately dropping the barbell from the top will result in a ZERO for the event. Please respect the equipment. This event will be ran using a stiff bar.

 

4.  SANDBAG TO SHOULDER CARRY LOAD

Equipment Allowed: Chalk, Wrist Wraps, Elbow Sleeves, Knee Sleeves, Warmer Shorts, One Soft Belt, One Hard Belt, Competition Grip Shirt

Time Limit: 60 Seconds

Scoring: Reps & Time

Athletes will start with hands off of the bags.  There will be three bags placed 25 feet from the yoke.  On the start command of the judge, the athlete will pick the first bag and bring it to their shoulder.  Once the bag is shouldered, the athlete will carry the bag down to the yoke and load it over the bar set at 52” for women and 56” for men.  The athlete will then return back for the second bag which they will shoulder and carry down to load over the yoke.  Same thing for the third bag.  Time is counted when the bag hits the ground after being loaded.  Split times will be taken.  Bags must be loaded from lightest to heaviest.

 

5.  STONE OVER BAR

Equipment Allowed: Tacky, Stone Sleeves, Elbow Sleeves, Knee Sleeves, Warmer Shorts, One Soft Belt, One Hard Belt, Competition Grip Shirt

Time Limit: 60 Seconds

Scoring: Max Reps

Athletes will start with hands on the cross member of the yoke.  On the start command of the judge, the athlete will have 60 seconds to pick and load the stone over the bar for as many reps as possible.  The bar will be set at 48” for women and 52” for men.  There will be a catcher feeding the stone back to the athlete.  If the stone is thrown at the catcher in an uncontrolled manner, the catcher will ensure their own safety.  So if the stone rolls away, that still counts against your time.  Hands are not allowed to be placed on the yoke to chest bump over the bar.  Athletes are allowed to wear a non-comp shirt for stones or go shirtless if they choose to.  However, no grip shirts will be allowed unless they are the competition grip shirt. There will be a tacky area where athletes must apply and remove their tacky. Not removing tacky in the designated area will result in an automatic zero for the event.

****Please refrain from taking another person's spot unless you are qualified.  Should you sign up without being qualified, you will be removed from the show without a refund. DO NOT sign up and email us saying you are going to or that you deserve it.
