2012 USAWA GRIP CHAMPIONSHIPS
The USAWA Grip Championships will be hosted again this year for the second time by the Dino Gym on the second weekend of February. As per requirement of the USAWA, all events in this USAWA Grip Championships will be official lifts of the USAWA. A complete “different set” of lifts have been selected this year which should provide a challenge to all entrants. This Championship is the premier grip competition within the USAWA during the year. I want to remind everyone that traditional USAWA scoring is used in this competition, which may be different than other organizations scoring. The “total pounds” of all the lifts are tallied together, and then amended using the Lynch Formula for bodyweight and age corrected for the lifter’s age.
Deadlift – Fulton Dumbbell, One Arm
Deadlift – Fingers, Index
Deadlift – No Thumb, One Arm
Vertical Bar Deadlift – 2 Bars, 2″
