BaD As 8

Our eighth annual Open Weightlifting Competition is on Sat 3 June 2017

We started our BaD As Open Weightlifting competition in 2010 to encourage more ladies to lift weights. Over the past 7 years we have seen numbers grow and the competition sell out in record time.

This year we are going to change the format for the competition, we have achieved our aim and the numbers of women lifting on a regular basis at our 41° Weightlifting Club Olympic Weightlifting competitions proves this.

So in 2017, for the first time the men will get to lift heavy as well. The competition format will remain the same but we will be opening it up to the guys. Initially we will only be offering this as an “In House” comp, but if not all the spots are taken, we will open up entries to those who have supported BaD As on a regular basis over the last 7 years.

We hope you understand our reasons for the changes and look forward to your continued support. Now everyone gets to be BaD As 🙂

We will recognize the top 3 lifters of each gender per kilo of body weight. We will need your lift start weights prior to the competition. Please be prepared and come with your lift start weights for Back Squat, Bench Press and Ground to Overhead. Rules for each lift are explained below. Like the last few years there will also be a Strongman/CrossFit style workout added to the competition. This will be performed as a floater, you will be asked to participate in this event in the order of which you registered. First to register will be first to reserve their time spot.

Weigh in for Men starts at 8am Saturday June 3rd. You must be weighed in prior to 9am. Lifting will begin at 9am after a briefing. Weigh in for Women starts at 10am. Lifting for Women will begin at 11am. There are a maximum of 60 competitors, 30 Men/30 Women. Spectators are free. Please email with questions. Entry is by donation on the day to HUHA (Helping You Help Animals) and the Te Omanga Hospice.
