KCSTRONGMAN RD

By Eric Todd

MEET ANNOUNCEMENT

KCSTRONGMAN Record Day

Date: June 3, 2017

Weigh Ins: 9:00 AM

Lifting starts: 10:00 AM

Entry Fee and Form: None, just let me know you are coming by emailing SalGuimino@yahoo.com.

Awards: None

Where: ET’s House of Iron and Stone, 10978 SW Pueblo Dr, Turney, MO 64493. I will post directions on the forum prior to the meet.  I would not count on using GPS if I were you.  It will take you to the middle of Turney, which is NOT where we are at.  Several souls have tried, and all have failed using GPS.  So use the directions instead. I do live in God’s country, but GPS aint found us here yet..

Disclaimer-If you have not been here before, it is a Quonset hut (looks like a giant tin can). Cold in the winter and hot in the summer.  No running water, so the commode comes in the form of an outhouse or tall weeds, you take your pick. Nothing fancy, just lots of iron for heavy lifting

Events:  You can pick up to five events to set a record in.  No more than 4 judged attempts per event.  WE can accommodate most USAWA events, but not all (like I do not have a backlift).  IF you are unsure, email me and ask.  You can also get your lifts for the 2nd quarter postal judged by certified judges at this meet.

Sanction: You must be a USAWA member to participate. Memberships will be available for purchase at the meet.

Divisions and weight classes: All divisions and weight classes that USAWA offers are available to try and set records in.

The tradition of our yearly postal series continues, with the kickoff of the 1st quarter postal meet of 2017.   It was well attended with 14 competitors (12 men and 2 women).   A big congrats goes to first time postal meet Men’s Division overall winner Daryl Jackson and the Women’s Overall Champ RJ Jackson.  I was very impressed with the lifting done in this postal meet which offered a very challenging set of dumbbell lifts.

National Championships

By Al Myers

MEET ANNOUNCEMENT

2017 USAWA NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP

The plans have been made!  The Nationals has been sanctioned and scheduled for June 24th and 25th at Vermillion, Ohio.   Bob Geib will be the meet director for this event, which is the highlight competition each year for the USAWA.  The lifts have been chosen:

DAY 1 – June 24th

Vertical Bar Deadlift – 1 Bar, 2″, One Hand
Clean and Push Press
Bent Over Row
Deadlift – 2 Dumbbells

DAY 2 – June 25th

Clean and Jerk – One Arm
Pullover and Push
Jefferson Lift (Straddle Deadlift)

This is a great selection of lifts for our National Championships.  As per the rules of the USAWA, all lifts chosen for the Nationals must be approved by the USAWA Executive Board.  The EB looks for these things in approving the lifts – a good variety of different movements, lifts that can be performed by the vast majority of lifters, lifts that are easily loadable and officiated, and lifts that represent the USAWA in a good manner.   I like to see a combination of Olympic Lift, Power style lifts, a grip lift, and something that utilizes a specialized lifting skill.  This selection definitely represents those things!

An important date to remember is the closing date for entries.  This date is May 26th, 2017.  This means that your entry form and ENTRY FEE must be sent in by that time.
