IronFest is a strength meet wherein the contested lifts will be the squat, press, bench press, and deadlift. Competitors will form teams of 2 lifters/team and perform all 4 lifts; each lifter will perform one upper body lift and one lower body lift, and each lifter will receive 3 attempts for each lift. A team’s score is comprised of each teammate’s Wilks score (which is based on the heaviest successful attempt for each lift). There are no weight classes for this meet, but there is a weigh-in for each lifter, and the weigh-in period runs from 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 a.m.
You may consult the rules found here for the squat, press, and deadlift movement standards, and a more complete treatment of the movement standards for all the lifts (including the bench press) can be found in the book Starting Strength: Basic Barbell Training, 3rd edition.
The six divisions are as follows:
- Male/Male (Open)
- Male/Male (Masters)
- Male/Female (Open)
- Male/Female (Masters)
- Female/Female (Open)
- Female/Female (Masters)
The open category is for teams with one or both teammates under 40 years of age on the day of competition, and the masters category is for teams with both lifters 40 years of age and older. In the masters category, the team score will be age-adjusted (using both Wilks and McCulloch coefficients).
Your meet entry fee includes an exquisitely designed and crafted shirt for each teammate, and you – as the stylish wearer of said shirt – will undoubtedly be the envy of all your friends. Don’t miss out (shirt guaranteed only if lifters register by June 3rd). In addition, there will be prizes for the overall winners in each division.
