(Max Double Overhand Axle Deadlift)

  • Time starts when the Apollon’s Axle is loaded; the athletes have 30 seconds to begin the lift.
  • No grip aids other than chalk allowed. Ordinary chalk (magnesium carbonate) may be used on the lifter’s hands, but nothing else is permitted (liquid chalk, for example, is specifically disallowed).
  • The Apollon’s Axle must be gripped with the knuckles on both hands facing forward (away from the body) with a double overhand grip.
  • Thumbless and hook gips are prohibited.
  • The lifter must fully straighten up (back erect, legs and hips locked out); once standing straight, the lifter must maintain control of the lift for 1 second before getting a down signal from the referee, and must then return the weight to the ground. Contact must be maintained between the lifter’s hand and the Axle until the weight is resting on the floor. The referee then indicates whether the lift was passed or not.
  • IPF powerlifting rules define the key guidelines:  resting the Axle on the thighs or any downward movement will disqualify the lift, as would failure to await the down signal or dropping the bar.  A sumo style is permitted and the feet may move after the lifter has received the down signal.
  • State, NAGS, and World records on the line (calibrated kilo plates and an official Apollon’s Axle will be used)



(Deadlift Medley)

  • 60 sec to lift each item, in order, and complete as many reps as possible on the final implement
  • Most reps wins, split times will be taken to prevent ties
  • Implements and weights to be announced on vikingperformancetraining.com
  • Must wait for down command on every lift. Failure to do so will result in the lift being DQ’d
  • To receive down signal, feet must be motionless and not staggered; knees, hips, and back extended
  • No dropping implements. This will also result in lifts being disqualified.
  • Equipment allowed: usual Mouser rules except… straps ARE legal. If your nose bleeds, vampires will aid with clean up.



(Carrying Medley)

  • 60 sec to negotiate each item in order across a 40ft course
  • Items include a treasure chest (Mouser Block) to be carried, a canon ball (stone) to be carried, and a Pirate Ship (… it’s really a Viking ship but we will dress it up) to be dragged.
  • Fastest time wins, if you do not finish you will be credited with distance.
  • When Block and Stone are deposited to the crash mat, they must be deposited under control or you will have to go them and replace them on the mat
  • No sticky stuff of any kind whatsoever is allowed. No sprays, to tacky towels, no Loctite. Just pick it up like people did for thousands of years.
  • Peg legs will be inspected prior to heat, and rum is encouraged afterwards.



(Squat Machine for Reps loaded with kids)

  • 60sec to perform as many reps as possible. Most reps wins
  • Height will be taken during weigh-ins so machine can be adjusted. Depth will be roughly powerlifting legal depth or higher; no ass-to-grass… unless you’re Jacob Bobbs.
  • Upon lift command, athlete will stand up, judge will call for the stopper blocks to be removed, and then a “SQUAT!” command will be given. Athlete will then squat for reps, touching the legs of the machine to the ground on each rep and standing up fully at the top. Failure to do so will result in a “no lift” which the judge will scream furiously at the lifter because we are mean.
  • Do not drop the machine.
  • Do not drop the machine.
  • If you cannot get a rep, it’s OK. Either follow the machine down until the legs of it rest on the ground and walk out from under it, OR ask the volunteers to put the blocks back in and re-rack it.
  • Dropping the machine while it’s loaded with kids will result in a few consequences: 1 – You will be given a zero for that event, and may be removed from the entire contest if I see fit. 2 – I will not stop the parents of the kids in questions from beating you senseless for scaring their babies.
  • Sleeves, one belt, wrist wraps, and telekinesis legal. No suits, knee wraps, or poltergeist assistance.



(Atlas Stones)

  • An increasingly heavy series of “pumpkins” (stones) must be loaded over the bar at 48in.
  • 60sec time limit. Fastest time wins.
  • Equipment allowed: sleeves, belt, tape, leather forearm gauntlets. Not allowed: tacky, stick um, ectoplasm, rubber shirts, gloves



(Car Flip!)

OK folks, let’s have a little chat here. I’m offering you a Car Flip, the one event above all others that people have asked me for over the last 12 years. I’m going to deliver it, and it’s going to be awesome. You want super cool events, you get super cool events. Here’s the catch though… I do not have details for you, and I’m not sure when I will have details or how much detail I will be able to give. I do not have the car we will be using yet, and may not have it until very close to meet time. I may not be able to answer your detailed questions about the car. I love you all very much, but I’m just being straight up, I don’t know exact details down to the inch and down to the pound like some people like to have them.

That being said, here’s what I’m aiming for: 60sec to flip the car completely over back onto it’s wheels again. Fastest time to do so wins. Split times taken at halfway point.

Let’s real – it’s going to be heavy… because it’s a car. A real car. Some entire divisions may zero this, I don’t know. That’s why we made this contest 6 events though, so that if some classes bomb this entirely then you still have 5 well rounded events to base scoring on. The key here is that you have the chance to FLIP A FREAKIN’ CAR.




General Rules/Usual Mouser Stuff

  • In the event of a tie in the final standings, 1st place finishes will decide the winner. If there is still a tie, then 2nd place finishes will be the determinant, and so on. If a tie cannot be broken this way, athletes will compete in a tie breaker.
  • Sportsmanship is expected and required. This is the greatest sport in the world, let’s keep it that way.
  • There will be a pre-event prayer. No one is expected to participate, so please do not feel obligated. All we ask is to be respectful of those that do or do not wish to participate.
  • This is a drug free contest. If you are juiced feel free to come cheer on your buddies but please do not bother to sign up. Don’t be surprised if I show up with a duffel bag full of drug testing kits!
  • If you have a question, please ask! I would rather take a minute to clarify something than to see someone have a poor showing due to a misunderstanding.
