Summer Meet 24th of June 2017

Summer meet 2017

Northside Barbell will host a small powerlifting competition on Saturday the 24th of June, 2017. It is a fun and casual meet, and it will be hosted in the familiar ACLO Powerstation located close to Groningen station. No prior experience is needed to participate. It is for the experienced lifter and for the beginner who wants experience in lifting in a competition environment.

The competition follows the same rules as an official competition regarding when a lift is good or bad and regarding the use of gear (belt, knee sleeves, and wrist wraps). The rules regarding the clothes are less strict. A singlet is not mandatory, but it is preferred. The same goes for deadlift socks. If you do not have deadlifts socks, then you must use long socks which will reach just below the knees. By a lack of a singlet we ask you not to wear baggy clothes. The competition has a maximum of 30 participants from which there are only nine spots left at the moment. There will be a top three men, and a top three women based on wilks.

If you have any questions, feel free to send an email to or contact one of the board members on Facebook.
