The Power Plant Gym Nr Tamworth will be running it's inaugral womans contest on the 24th March. Arrive 10am for a 11am start.

Events

40kg axle clean and press for reps head to head

180kg Yoke 15m

Silver dollar deadlift last women standing start weight tbc

Arm over arm sled drag for approx. 12m approx. 250kg sledge but tbc

80kg Farmers 30m, (15m put down then 15m back)

Stone over yoke 60sec. (Arnold classic style, weights approx 90kg/70kg/50kg)
This means that you can try the 90kg, if you fail to get one rep, you can go again with the 70kg stone, and if you fail to get a lift you can try the 50kg stone. One rep with the 90kg stone beats any number of reps with the 70 or 50 kg stone, and similarly one rep with the 70 beats any number of reps with the 50kg stone

The weights are heavy, and the distances are short. This is to allow us to hold the events inside the gym should the weather be bad. We hope to hold the events outside though.

The contest will be limited to 20, on a first come first served basis. Due to the popularity of these contests please only but your name down if your fully comitted to competing. We don't want to turn away competitors only to have loads on no shows on the day.

Enterance fee is 10, payable on the day. To cover the cost of the T-Shirts.

If your interested please email me at paul.amor@live.com, message me on this board or via facebook

Not sure how high the yoke will be set as I've not measured it, will be arround 44"

Due to comments on the weight of the Farmers and Yoke, we may lower the weights a bit. 70kg Famers and 160kg for the yoke, please let me know if these revised weights are prefferable.

Directions for this Saturday

Hi All

Numbers are dwindling a bit for next week, had a couple of people already have to drop out, so we are currently at 9/10ish

We have lowered the weights a little from the initial set that we put up

events are 40kg axle clean and press

Deadlift starting at 80kg

Farmers walk 70kg

Yoke - 160kg

Arm over Arm Pull - roughly 240-250kg - this is great fun! Me and Claire Haynes tried this, and was pretty tough but brilliant! Its basically a keg on a sled.

Stones 50/70/90kg over yoke - if its bad weather we may do this onto platforms

If anything it will be a good training weekend as well as some good fun!

I know some of you said you are maybes etc but will be good to know for definite. If you have training partners interested etc, even if they want to just give 1 event a go, let me know and just bring them along.


Cheers

Sharon and Paul
