2017 USA Powerlifting New Mexico State Championship – Updated


We are a little less than one week out from the 2017 USA Powerlifting New Mexico State Championship. The turnout is amazing so far, especially for the women athletes. In total, we currently have 41 athletes, 23 of which are women!

Due to the larger than expected turnout of women athletes we are going to have slightly modified the preliminary schedule. The new schedule of events will be as follows:

Session 1

8:00 am to 9:30 am – Weigh-ins for all Female Athletes

9:15 am – Rules briefing

10:00 am – Competitive lifting

1:30 pm – Awards presentation / Drug testing protocol


Session 2

12:00 pm to 1:30 pm – Weigh-ins for all Male Athletes

1:15 pm – Rules briefing

2:00 pm – Competitive lifting

5:00 pm – Awards presentation / Drug testing protocol


We are aware that some athletes (light weight males primarily) may not be able to make these changes to their schedule, if this is the case, please email me at your earliest convince and we will do our best to accommodate you.


Please make sure that your USA Powerlifting is current for 2017 if it is not you must register as soon as possible on-line at https://www.usapowerlifting.com/member-tools/membership.php

Just a reminder that you will need underwear without legs (no compression shorts or boxer of any kind) and everyone must have socks that cover their shins for the deadlift.

Anyone wishing to still enter you must do so right as soon as possible, registration will be closing on Monday 3/13 at 10 pm mountain time! Link to register http://nm.mass-lift.com/event/2017-usa-powerlifting-new-mexico-state-championships/
