There's still time to sign up for our first Virtual "Sisters of Iron" Powerlifting Competition. This is a virtual competition open to lifters of all strength levels and genders competing right in your own garage or local gym. If you're a new lifter and worried about making squat depth, we encourage you to enter the competition and enjoy the process, have fun! We will be providing coaching feedback, if requested, after review of your video submissions.

Get Ready!

After registering for the virtual meet, you'll receive an email confirming your entry in the competition. In addition to receiving a confirmation email, as we get closer to the meet dates, you'll also receive instructions on how to submit your scores. Take time to practice setting up your camera and practice filming video(s) to ensure the best quality on meet day. You'll have from Oct 2nd- Oct 5th to complete your virtual competition lifts. However, all lifts must be completed on the same day. After review of your video submissions of all 9 lifts, your score will be entered on the competition leader board
