Once a year, area weightlifters gather for Fort Leonard Wood’s premier powerlifting event. The sixth annual Barbenders Powerlifting Competition is scheduled for 9 a.m. Sept. 29 at Davidson Fitness Center’s Court 1.
Participants in multiple weight categories will compete to see who can lift the most weight in three core lifts: the squat, bench and deadlift.
“Basically, we’re just going to have a competition that deals with those three main lifts,” said Tory Henderson, Specker Gym fitness facility manager. “Participants will choose their own weight they want to compete with. The goal is for the individual to lift as much as possible.”
The competition is open to the public. Participants must be ages 18 or older.
Entry fees are $35 per person. Participants can register in person at Specker Gym, DFC or online at https://leonardwood.armymwr.com. Registration ends Tuesday.
Weigh-ins will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Sept. 27.
