Want to show off your lifting skills? Come join us on Saturday, Nov. 16 at the UAB Campus Recreation Center for the biggest fitness competition of the year! Blazer Lift-Off is a lifting challenge event to test maximum skills in three powerlifting movements. Come for the fun fitness motivation and stay for the chance to win awesome prizes!

Challenges include:

  • Max squat
  • Max deadlift
  • Max bench
  • Max combined (automatically entered in individual max competition)

All maxes will be calculated pound to pound to accommodate weight differences. There will be a male and female division for each challenge. 

The event is free for students, $5 for URec members and $10 for non-members.
