2014 Michigan Barbell Classic
Saturday February 8th, 2014
Welcome to the 2014 Michigan Barbell Classic. Ever wondered how you stack up, pound for pound strenghtwise, compared to other. This event is for you! No metcons, ALL STRENGTH and OLY. This event is going to be a Oly Meet and a Powerlifting Meet combined with our own spin on it. Unlike in traditional meets where you only get 3 attempts, athletes will be given a certain amount of time to make as many attempts at a lift as they like. The lifts will be the Clean and Jerk (150pts), the Snatch (150pts), Back Squat (100pts), Bench Press (100pts), and the Dead Lift (100pts). This provides equal weighting to the Oly lifts and the Power lifts.
Every lift will be scored as a “Pound for Pound” score. We are defining the Strongest Pound for Pound lifter as the athlete that is able to move the most weight relative to their own bodyweight. Back squatting 450#’s is just a number. Back squatting 450#’s if you weight 150# is pretty awesome.
