Pound For Pound 2017 - Qualifiers
Mon, 24 Apr 2017, 09:00 – Wed, 24 May 2017, 21:00 BST
UNIT 22 Events are proud to run and host an event designed to level the playing field for every male and female athlete around the globe.
The idea behind the competition first materialised when a group of coaches recognised that a 90kg guy lifting the same weight as a 65kg guy doesn’t allow for their relative strength differences.
The Pound for Pound competition, now in it’s fourth year, recognises the need to organise a suitable event where all athletes are standing shoulder to shoulder equal to the next man and woman.
All workouts in the competition will carefully determine the strongest, quickest and most powerful athlete in relation to their bodyweight.
All gymnastic and weightlifting moves are legitimate in this competition as the weights will be decided based on a percentage of the athletes bodyweight.
The Finals will take place on July 29th & 30th 2017 at UNIT 22 Northampton.
