October Iron Fest


On Saturday, October 25th, CrossFit Oakland will be hosting another strengthlifting meet. Competitors will have three opportunities to establish a one repetition maximum on the squat, shoulder press, and deadlift. The meet, called October Iron Fest–A Starting Strength Event, will take place alongside several other meets on the same day. Seven gyms across the US and Canada, including CrossFit Oakland, are all putting on strengthlifting meets and the results from all of the meets will be combined and overall winners announced.

The cost for the meet is $60 and is limited to thirty-six competitors. All of the lifters in the meet receive a tshirt that, from all accounts, will likely feature a dinosaur on it. Additional details and the official rules, once they are finalized, can be found here. For those wishing to sign up for the meet, you can do so below.


The last strengthlifting meet we held at CFO was great fun and we are looking forward to putting on another meet. We are also looking for loaders and spotters, preferably six people, to help at the meet. If you are interested, please get in contact with Tom.
