Bench Press

July 16

DATE: Tuesday, July 16, 2024
TIME: 9:00 AM

If you’re looking for somewhere to get your lift in, Slippery Rock University has all the “flare”. With multiple weight rooms and “the Arc” – an 82,000 square foot, state-of-the art sports and recreational facility – SRU will rock your benching regime with the latest and greatest equipment as well as all of the tips and tricks to have you thrusting that extra 10 lbs. To say a bench press at Slippery Rock University is transformative is anything but a “reach”!

Bench Press is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on the Bench Press. The competitor takes a position on a flat bench with body weight resting on the buttocks and upper traps having an arched back and feet driven into the floor. Movement requires the weight to be taken at full arm’s length, lowered to the upper torso, paused, and then lifted to starting position. Singlets are recommended but not required for this event. T-shirts and shorts with no pockets are acceptable. This will be a “RAW” competition with no bench shirts allowed. No elbow sleeves or shirt/wrist wraps touching the elbow. Belts are allowed for all lifts. Event
organizers reserve the right to combine weight/age categories based on athlete registration.

Bench Press Meet will run concurrently with the full powerlifting Event. Powerlifter bench press will qualify for placing in this event as long as they submit a registration for BOTH the Powerlifting Event AND the Bench Press Event. Alternatively, competitors may compete in Bench Press only.

Entries close 24 hours prior to the start of the competition.
