THIS IS A RAW MEET ONLY:  This is a full 3-lift meet (squat, bench press and deadlift), with three attempts in each. We will allow a very limited number of lifters to participate in bench press only, deadlift only or push-pull (both bench press and deadlift).  Contact the Meet Director prior to registration for approval to enter on a single-lift or push-pull basis.  USAPL rules will govern the meet.  For further clarification, refer to the USAPL rules at http://www.usapowerlifting.com/rules-bylaws/ .  This is a one-day one-platform meet with a 60-lifter cap for 3-lift lifters. This is a drug-tested meet.  No American records can be set at this meet, but state records can be set.

UNIFORMS AND EQUIPMENT: One piece lifting suits (singlets) are mandatory for all contestants. Non-supportive briefs (underwear) without legs are required for competition and weigh-ins. ALL equipment must conform to USAPL standards. For further clarification please visit http://www.usapowerlifting.com/rules-bylaws/ or contact the Meet Director.

Check www.wada-ama.org for banned substances list.  10% of lifters will be drug tested!
