BWL Strength and Power Series Featured

Strength and Power Series 2014

The Strength and Power Series has 10 stages and runs from September - July, with each stage lasting one calendar month.  Each stage is a unique exercise to test your strength and power!The British Weight Lifting Strength and Power Series is an exciting, free-to-enter, national competition that you can compete in from your local gym!

At the end of each stage, results from across the UK are collected and ranked to give a Stage Winner.  Points are available in each stage for the top ranking competitors, at the end of the Series the competitors with the most points are crowned Series Champions!

Don't worry! Results are grouped by age, gender and disability, and most of the exercises are scored by the ratio of weight lifted against your bodyweight.  This means that smaller people can compete fairly against bigger people!

There are four easy steps to taking part:

1 - Find out what the current exercise is on the BWL website

2 - Go to your gym and do the exercise

3 - Record your result on the BWL online entry form

4 - Look out for the results, you could be a national champion!

Warm up thoroughly before attempting any exercise.
