(Deadlift Medley)

  • 60 sec to lift each item, in order, and complete as many reps as possible on the final implement
  • Order: floor w/Deadlift Bar, 13″ Tire Axle, 16.5″ Wagon Wheels (LWW Novice/Teen/Masters will be 15″) with Stiff Power Bar, 11″ Deadsled with Fat Grip
  • Most reps wins, split times will be taken to prevent ties
  • 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: Straps, Chalk, and a mean mug. NO DEADLIFT SUITS. If your nose bleeds, vampires will aid with clean up.


  • 60sec to complete course. Fastest time wins
  • Anyone who does not complete will be credited with distance
  • Athletes must first pick up the Block Corpse 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 Cerberus’s giant chains (mining chains) up the course.
  • ***THE ENTIRE COURSE IS UPHILL*** Yes you will carry uphill, then run back and drag the giant chain uphill.


(Atlas Stones)

  • An increasingly heavy series of stones (stones) must be loaded over the bar at 48in. (women – 44″)
  • 60sec time limit. Fastest time wins.
  • Equipment allowed: sleeves, belt, tape, leather forearm gauntlets. Not allowed: tacky, stick um, ectoplasm, rubber shirts.


Creature vs Monster, Robot vs Pro Wrestler, Yoshi vs. Paul Mouser Clone…

  • Tug of War! Classes of 5 or more will have ONE MATCH versus everyone in their class, most wins… WINS! Classes of 4 or less will go Best of 3!
  • Tie breakers will be decided by the head-to-head results
  • No sticky stuff!!!

‘MYSTERY EVENT #1’ – The Nightmarish Gauntlet of Shattered Dreams (75sec)

Kraken Walk (just kidding, it’s a Duck Walk) 30ft + Log Clean & Press x1 + Axle Box Squat for Reps

  • Competitors will have box height measured during registration, with hip parallel to knee joint as goal. Wear your competition shoes!
  • Competitors will have 75 seconds
  • Duck Walk 30ft – unlimited drops, no sticky stuff. Pick weight up, waddle waddle waddle until you’ve crossed 30′! ALL of implement must cross the line!
  • Log Clean & Press – perform 1 single rep to lockout. For lockout log must be overhead, feet still and in a square stance, elbows locked out. When you receive the “Down” command, you must LOWER THE LOG to your shoulders and follow it down to the tire/crash pads with your hands on the bar. Dropping the bar from overhead may result in disqualification!
  • Axle Box Squat for Reps – Females will use a 33lb Apollons’ Axle as their bar, Males a 77lb MB Powercenter solid axle. You will unrack the axle from a squat rack, sit to box, and stand up. Wait until “Good Rep, Down” command is given for all future reps. A “Good rep” must be all the way up, and standing still.
  • If you need to punch anyone in the face afterwards, I suggest Sean. Not the volunteers spotting.

General Rules/Usual 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.
  • 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.
