When was the last time you saw 2,000 Pounds of plates that were all 100 Pounders?
The 2012 Heavy Lifts Championships at the Atomic Athletic Great Black Swamp Olde Time Strongman Picnic will have that many. I fully expect that someone will do a lift of OVER 1,500 pounds on Saturday, the 12th of May.
Make sure to check out the Atomic Athletic web page for photos of some of these monster lifts and the one of a kind Poster!
We will also have multiple chain lift bars, an assortment of heavy lifting harnesses and hand & thigh bars, not to mention all the smaller plates. Hopefully, we will even have need for the little Record Maker Plates. Those babies go down to the 1/4 Kg size. After all, a 1/2 Kg record is still a record.
The 3 lifts are: The Hip Lift, The Neck Lift and the Hand & Thigh Lift!
We now do our own classic Chain Lift bar design and a USAWA Regulation Bar. They are slightly different, but the same price.
Definitely don’t miss out on the Picnic! Remember, the Picnic and Heavy Lifts Championships are at the Old School on South Main in beautiful Bowling Green, OH. The action will be taking place on the sports fields with lifting platforms on the basketball court.
Live strong, Roger LaPointe
