(Deadlift Medley)

  • 60 sec to lift each item, in order, and complete as many reps as possible on the final implement
  • Order: floor w/stiff bar, frame w/18in pick 32in width beams men’s and womens sizes, 18in Apollon’s axle, 13in tire axle
  • 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.



(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.



  • 60sec to complete course. Fastest time wins
  • Anyone who does not complete will be credited with distance
  • Athletes must first pick up Pinhead’s Puzzle’s Box (aka a Mouser Block) & carry it 50ft and deposit it on a crash tire under control. If the Block is not properly steadied on the crash tire, the athlete will have to fix it before he/she can continue onward.
  • Next, athletes will drag the Cenobite’s giant chains up the course.
  • ***THE ENTIRE COURSE IS UPHILL*** Yes you will carry uphill, then run back and drag the giant chain uphill.



(Deep Waters Hercules Hold)

  • Athletes will hold as long as possible; longest time wins.
  • No grip aids allowed.



(Max Axle Box Squat)

  • 60sec per attempt. 3 attempts to reach the highest weight possible. Heaviest succesful lift wins.
  • In the event of a tie, “less attempts” to reach the tied number wins. If that doesn’t work, then higher opener wins. If that doesn’t work, then higher second attempt wins. If that doesn’t work… then you just tie for crying out loud jeesh.
  • Athletes’ box height and rack height will be taken at weigh-ins
  • Athletes must wait for THREE commands from the judge – “squat” , “up” , and “rack”
  • To receive “squat” command, athlete must be in position to squat down to the box properly, must have an upright posture, and must be steady
  • To receive an “up” command athlete must sit down to the box, and demonstrate that all major movement has stopped.
  • To receive a “rack” command, athlete must stand up straight under his/her own power, and demonstrate control of the bar with knees, hips, and back extdended.
  • An axle, huge wagon wheels, and all sorts of decorations may be used to make this look extra awesome.
  • This is a raw squat. I don’t want people to have to run out and spend even more money on $500 worth of equipment. Neoprene sleeves, shorts, wrist wraps, and a single belt are legal. If you wanna wear more gear than that, please go do so at one of our powerlifting meets. We’d be glad to have you and your smelly ol nasty squat suit there!




(Motorcycle Press for Reps!)

OK folks, let’s have a little chat here. I’m offering you a Motorcycle Press for Reps, one of the craziest events that people have asked me for now for over a decade. 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 motorcycles 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 motorcycles. 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 clean the bike once and press away for reps.

For ladies, if I cannot find a bike of what appears to be a somewhat reasonable difficultly (aka if I think literally everyone will zero it) then we will make it a Motorcycle Carry for yall, with fastest time winning.

Let’s be real – it’s going to be heavy… because it’s a motorcycle. A real motorcycle. 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 LIFT A FREAKIN’ MOTORCYCLE.




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.
