Torque Powerlifting’s first annual – Torque Barbell Powerlifting Classic. We’ve been looking forward to this since we opened and finally putting everything together. This meet is not affiliated with any federation, no records will be set, and it won’t qualify you for anything. 

What it is is an old-school competition in a hardcore gym with trophies, prizes, good music, and good lifting. This is a RAW event. All rules and judging will follow WPC(CPF) guidelines. Squats will be walked out, benches will be “motionless” on the chest, and deadlifts must be a smooth lift with no hitching. There is no drug testing at this event.

This is the first of many competitions at Torque Barbell Club and we’re looking forward to lifting with you.
