THE 2024 TEAM BARBELL CLASSIC

This is a 3 athlete team lifting event. 

Divisions:

MALE OPEN TEAM 

FEMALE OPEN TEAM

MIXED GENDER OPEN TEAMteams will consist of 4 lifters, two males and 2 females.  There is NOT a masters division for mixed gender teams.  

MASTER MALE TEAM (ALL team members are over the age of 40) *there will be no prizes for this division.  Medals OR Banners will ONLY be given for 1st place.  We understand this may not be liked, but the last time we did this event we had 2 male masters teams and 6 female masters teams.  

MASTERS FEMALE TEAM (ALL team members are over the age of 40) *there will be no prizes for this division.  Medals will ONLY be given for 1st place.  We understand this may not be liked, but the last time we did this event we had 2 male masters teams and 6 female masters teams.  

If a team consists of 1 or more athletes 39 or younger, even if a member (or, members) of the team IS 40 or over, that team will be an OPEN DIVISION TEAM.

  1. Teams will ONLY go out onto the lifting floor twice.  Once for OLY (18 total min on the floor to lift) and once for POWER (22min on the floor to lift).  
  2. For the OLY for ALL same gender teams- EACH lifter on the team MUST lift (score) one of the oly lifts.  This means that one lifter will HAVE TO lift both oly lifts.  Example: 
 

Lifter A

Lifter B

Lifter C

Snatch

X

X

Clean & Jerk

  1. For the Power Lifts for ALL same gender teams – EACH lifter MUST lift (score) at least 2 of the lifts.  This means that each lifter will have to do 2 of the lifts (if someone lifts all three, they can only count 2 towards the team’s score).  Example:
 

Lifter A

Lifter B

Lifter C

Squat

Bench

Deadlift

For the 4 lifter MIXED GENDER DIVISION – ALL athletes will perform every lift.  Every lift will be counted towards the team’s final score.  

Teammates will ALL weigh in. For oly, we will use Sinclair and for Power we will use Wilks. Score will be combined weight lifted on a given lift (i.e. the two highest back squat numbers from 2 of the teammates) against their COMBINED bodyweight. Each athlete will be denoted with an A, B, or C as well as a team number. Example: Athletes A and B each weight 200#’s and they each snatch 225 (keeping this simple). Their total weight lifted will be 450 and their bodyweight will be 400. We then use these numbers with the Sinclair coefficient to get their score on the leaderboard for the Snatch.

These coefficients sole purpose is to normalize a Total (either Oly or Power Lifting) across the range of lifters body weights. The overall winner will be determined by their WILKS + their SINCLAIR combined TOTAL. If you want to know more about wilks and or sinclair, google it.

WINNING TEAMS will be determined by SINCLAIR TOTAL + WILKS TOTAL.

Registration opens May 7th, at 7am!
