Event details

Date Time Location Charge
Thursday 27 September 8am - 1pm Recreation Centre, Sports Hall Free to all

The 28th annual UoA Powerlifting event is a chance for weightlifters to compete against each other and see who can win the title of UoA Powerlifting Champion.

The athletes will need to complete their best squat, bench press and deadlift, aiming for the best total of all three lifts.

The point system is done by the WILKS formula, which is used to compare the strength of powerlifters against each other despite the difference in weight of the lifters. 

This is also a great event to come and watch! So bring your mates, see some powerful lifts and eat some FREE pizza.
