Entry/Roster: Although this is a drop-in event, we strongly encourage participants to submit their entry forms to the Campus Recreation Office by Monday, May 4, by no later than 5:00 p.m.
Competition: All weight lifters must present a current, valid Adelphi photo ID card prior to competition. Sign-in and weigh-in will be from 3:00 p.m. -3:30 p.m. in the Fitness Center on Tuesday, May 5th. The meet will begin promptly at 4:00 PM for both the men’s and women’s competition, beginning with the lowest participant weigh-in and progressing in the following order: squat, bench press and deadlift. The weight lifting meet staff will assist in spotting the lifts and racking the weights for the participants. However, outside spotters are allowed in the event that a participant feels more comfortable with someone else. Three attempts are allowed for each lift and will be determined successful or unsuccessful by the weight lifting meet judges. A warmup period will be allowed for each participant prior to the first attempt of each lift. The strongest man and woman will be determined based on pounds lifted per pound of body weight. (Example: 295 squat + 225 bench + 305 deadlift= 825 total weight → 825 total ÷ body weight of 195 lbs = 4.23 pounds lifted per pound of body weight)
Awards: Trophies and T-shirts will be awarded to the strongest male and female competitor based on pounds lifted per pound of body weight. A medal will be presented to the male and female who successfully complete the heaviest weight for each lift.
