Powerlifting Event

The annual Powerlifting competition is back!

Event details

Date: Thursday 19 September
Time: 8am-2.30pm
Location: Recreation Centre, Sports Hall

Do you have what it takes to be crowned the University of Auckland Powerlifting Champion?

This competition has two categories, male and female. Both categories will be judged across three compound lifts, squat, bench press and deadlift. The sum of your best lift from each discipline will then be combined. 

The powerlifting judging panel will determine the winner of each category using the WILKS formula. This formula is used to compare strength of powerlifters against each other despite the difference in weight of the lifters.  

There are some amazing prizes up for grabs with the prizegiving taking place straight after the results have been calculated. 

This event is open to all University of Auckland students and only 30 spots are available. Make sure you get in quick!
