On June 22, 2019, the third race of DEADLIFT CHALLENGE was held, this time in Prague 9 in the Box CrossFit With Us. We have long wanted to participate in a similar event with our WORKOUT booth and introduce our powerlifting products. And this was a great opportunity. The races were again organized by David Lupač, whom we certainly do not imagine powerlifters. For others a brief introduction. David Lupač is a powerlifter, winner of the Arnold Classic 2018, World Champion in the Men's Powerlifting 2017, State Youth Coach of the Czech Union of Forces. trojboje and more.
123 competitors in many categories (women, amateurs, juniors, men and monster league) took part in the races in Prague. According to the name of the race, it is clear that only one discipline was racing - deadlift. The race was designed for all athletes who wanted to race and possibly overcome their maximum. In addition to powerlifters, we also met strongmans, weightlifters, crossfitters and other athletes.
There were many great sporting performances when the racers often overcame their personal highs. But the highlight of the races was the conclusion when the Polish driver Krzysztof Wierzbicki (98 kg body weight) beat the world record of 100 kg RAW when he raised an incredible 432 kg to the deadlift !!!
Thank you for your great sports experience.
Ondra and David, WORKOUT
