About The Competition

The Lift For Lymphoma Deadlift Competition utilizes competition grade equipment and rules to help give people an introduction to a sanctioned powerlifting meet via a deadlift only option.

Each competitor is allowed three attempts at a weight of their choosing, however, once a weight has been chosen, the competitor is not allowed to decrease their weight. Once a successful lift has been made, the lifter may increase the weight for the next attempt. The highest successful lift by the lifter is deemed their best lift, and is what is used to determine the overall winner and each weight class winner.

Each attempt has rules that must be followed, including but not limited to:

  • The lifter can start the lift at any time before the one-minute clock expires. Once started, it must be lifted without any downward movement until the lifter is standing erect. The bar may come to a stop, but no portion may reverse direction at any time.
  • On completion of the lift, the knees, hips, and shoulders shall be locked in a straight position and the lifter is standing erect.
  • The Head Referee’s signal shall consist of a downward movement of the hand and the audible command “DOWN”. The signal will not be given until the bar is held motionless and the lifter is in the finished position.
  • The lifter will return the bar to the platform with both hands and under control.

If you would happen to have questions about the basic powerlifting rules, please don't hesitate to contact us. But please be in attendance for the rules meeting.
