Battle of the Bar will see lifters go head to head to be crowned the strongest male, and female overall.
What To Expect
This year we will be raising funds for the Aintree Hospital Major Trauma Ward in Liverpool.
This year our event will be sponsored by local supplement company PNI Supplements, who will be offering FREE prizes on the day.
Who Can Win A Prize?
Anyone with an interest in getting on the platform are welcome, whether you’ve just started your powerlifting journey, or you’re a veteran of the sport, we’d love to see you lift!
Check out some of the snaps from last years competition…
Competitors will have 3 attempts on the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift.
Winners will be determined by the highest total achieved!
Spectators will be welcome to come and support those who are lifting on the day. You will be able to make a minimum of £5 donation on the door.
There will be a raffle with prizes to be won, and our neighbours, The Little Owl Cafe will be providing catering for the day.
Volunteers are invaluable to the smooth running of the event.
We will need platform crew (spotters/loaders), runners, table staff, media/merch, donation collection, and more.
Our competition will be under IPF rules, although we will be relaxed about certain aspects of the rules, more details will follow.

Full power means you’ll have to complete the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift in the same competition, in that exact order.
Raw lifting will require the lifter to compete without the aid of supportive apparel/equipment, e.g. no knee wraps or squat briefs, although a belt can be worn.
*The Wilks Coefficient or Wilks Formula is a coefficient that can be used to measure the strength of a powerlifter against other powerlifters despite the different weights of the lifters.
