Heavy Lift Championships
by Al Myers
I’m excited to be hosting the 2014 USAWA Heavy Lift Championships. This is my first opportunity to be able to host this long time prestigious event. The Heavy Lift Championships are to recognize the best “heavy lifters” in the USAWA. Three lifts have become the traditional format for this meet over the past few years – Neck Lift, Hand and Thigh, and the Hip Lift. The meet will be held in the Dino Gym on the heavy lift platform – which is the part of the gym DEDICATED to the heavy lifts only. The nice thing about that is there will be no weights to move for a setup as it’s all there in place, and no heavy cleanup required afterwards. That will give everyone more time to just enjoy the meet and commit all energies to their lifting.
