POWERX returns for the third straight year at the Arnold Sports Festival in 2017 with the National Championship competition taking place at the Ohio Expo Center Saturday, March 4, 2017. Come cheer on athletes who are lifting 100 times their bodyweight!! 

POWERX combines muscular endurance and explosive strength. Athletes perform three types of lifts; the Power Clean, Bench Press and Deadlift. They can perform each lift up to 20 repetitions or three minutes, whichever comes first. Scores are calculated by multiplying the reps performed by the weight on the bar. The winner is determined by the lifter with the highest combined weight total of all three lifts. 

POWERX athletes compete in nine bodyweight classes and six age groups; competitors range in age from 16-60 years old. Last year’s overall winner lifted 111 times his bodyweight! 

Visit www.powerx.us and the POWERX Arnold Web site for more information and to register. All competitors must meet qualifying totals prior to the competition. Please check the posted weight class totals on the POWERX web site.

Watch this exciting two-person deadlift event where TWO strong lifters pull ONE deadlift barbell in tandem! Extreme weights will be pulled by teams using Powerlifting rules. Over ten categories of double lifter teams include 2 men, 2 women, Coed, Teens, Twins, Father-Son, Mother-Daughter, and Husband-Wife. Check out www.extremeteamdeadlift.com for more info!
