W can assure you that many of the prize winners in this event will be lifters not ranked in the top 40.
Success of this Event - Support: The 2008 event is already financed. Whether we continue this event will depend entirely on the turnout and interest the lifters show in this 2007 event. If you plan to compete in this event later in your career and not in 2007, you may want to join as a pro and support the program and event so it will continue for you and others when you are ready to lift in it.
Future Pro Events: If this program is accepted and used by our lifters, it will continue. If it is a huge success the prize money will grow and there may be added divisions in later meets. The choice is yours, the lifter.
so nothing for lightweights
jsut the big guys?
Why is "curl" becoming a competition lift?
Face it: biceps are the muscle that classifies you as a muscle man.
HilarityStriding across the fields, carrying a vorpal blade, cometh Clawhammer! And he gives a bloodthirsty bellow:
"As sure as predators devour prey, I shall paint the town a sanguine shade of doom!!!"
There are no weight classes. So, a lightweight or heavy weight lifter can win, but it's based on a coefficient. http://www.nasa-sports.com/olcoef.htm
Curl competition has been around for several years. Nearly 10 different federations offer curl competition.
