We did it again! The American Hero Classic powerlifting meet on November 10th was a huge success. Raising $1,050 for Paralyzed Veterans of America has never been more fun. For many of our participants it was their first experience training for and competing in a powerlifting meet. We provided powerlifting clinics and did one on one training for many of the participants to prepare them. In case you haven’t heard of powerlifting the basic premise is to Squat, Bench press and Deadlift as much weight as you can with in three attempts for each lift. Form is critical, so the participants not only trained to build strength but also did lots of work on technique and form. If you didn’t get a chance to experience the excitement mark your calendars for November 9th 2019! See you next year.
Here is a summary of what went down:
- Participants lifted over 5 tons, 10,475 pounds
- $525 donated to Paralyzed Veterans of America based on weight lifted
- We raised an additional $525 through the generous donation of our members
- We had more than 75 spectators attend throughout the event
