2017 Starting Strength Challenge

We are pleased to announce the first set of sanctioned strength meets put on by the US Strengthlifting Federation – The 2017 Starting Strength Challenge.

The meets will take place on Saturday, April 1, 2017 starting at 8am.

Strength meets are unique competitions that allow lifters to establish their one-repetition maximum attempts in the squat, press, and deadlift. Equipment allowed is limited to belts, knees sleeves, wrist wraps, and shoes. All deadlifts are pulled conventionally. Lifters don’t weigh in. They weigh out after their last deadlift attempt. The meets are run by Starting Strength Coaches from around the United States.
