Strengthlifting Meet at Emeryville on Sunday, April 13

Deadlift

On Sunday, April 13, CrossFit Oakland’s Emeryville Location will be hosting a strengthlifting meet. Competitors will take up to three attempts to establish their heaviest single squat, press, and deadlift. We have room for up to 32 competitors. Weightlifting or wrestling singlets, or as some like to call them, “onesies,” will be required. The cost is $55. Everyone will get a t-shirt. A select few will get an award. More details and sign ups for the meet can be found at:

If you have been eager to set some one repetition maximum personal records in front of a crowd and three judges, you now have that chance. While I pretty much have the judge positions filled, I am looking for four to six people to help with loading the bar and spotting lifters during the squat. For performing said loading and spotting tasks, you get to walk away with $20, yes twenty whole dollars. If you are interested, please send me an email. I hope to see you at the meet.

    Are there age/weight divisions for the Strengthlifting meet April 13th? I’m a 37 year old male weighing 175lbs. Thanks.

      There are no age divisions, but I do have heavyweight and lightweight divisions for the men and women. There will actually be a full set of weight classes, but with only 32 people I am not going to award medals for each one. I will probably announce them, however.
