Coastal Bend College to host Powerlifting Event


An intramural powerlifting competition will be held at Coastal Bend College in Beeville on Saturday, May 5, 2012. Weigh in starts at 8 a.m. The meet starts at 10:30 a.m. The competition will consist of a full powerlifting meet with the addition of a separate bench press competition at $15 for each event and/or $25 for both events. A participant may enter in one or both of the events. We will generally follow USAPL rules.

This event will have several categories for both men and women athletes: Collegiate (for college students [must have college ID]). Open (anyone from the community can enroll). SubMasters I (open division from age 35-40). Sub- Masters II (open division from 40-45). SubMasters III (open division from 45-50). Masters I (open division from 50 - 55). Masters II (open 55-60). Masters III (open 60 or older)

The Powerlifting Championships consist of two classifications:

“Equipped” lift (which means to lift with the assistance of full equipment such as bench shirts, squat suits, etc.)

“Raw” lift (which means to lift without a bench shirt or squat suit).

A wrestling singlet is required as standard attire with a t-shirt and tennis shoes as the minimum required suit for lifting. All competitors must lift with regulation apparel of a wrestling singlet, t-shirt and tennis shoes.
