Power Meet 5

Registrations are now closed! Come and support the athletes on 28-29 September 2018 at the Park Inn by Radisson. Free entry for spectators

Date: 28-29 September 2018

Venue: Park Inn by Radisson Dubai Motor City

Event description:

Join us for the region’s fastest growing powerlifting competition! Hosted by Desert Barbell, support by Aplyft and approved by the UAE Powerlifting Federation, this two-day event will see men and woman from all experience levels and backgrounds test their strength in the squat, bench-press and deadlift.

New for the Power Meet 5 is the ‘team’ event. How it works:

  • Simply provide your team name when registering and we will automatically compile your team list
  • Each team MUST consist of at least 2 women. All girl teams are allowed. Teams will be limited to 5 team members, with a minimum of 4
  • Teams will be measured on total Wilks for a chance to win additional prizes
  • There is no additional cost to register as part of a team

You do not need to be part of a team to enter. The individual winners in each category and weight class will always be the priority. The teams will just add a bit more competitive fun! If you do not have a team, just leave the field bank. You can always update it later!

The competition will follow ‘Classic’ rules meaning only the use of knee sleeves, wrist-wraps and belts are permitted. A singlet is required; however, woman may wear more conservative attire. Download the full rule sheet for more details!

Early bird registration fee is AED75 before 21 July and AED100 thereafter. Only 100 spots available!

Prizes to be announced soon!
