Weight Classes at the Arnold

Do to the changes of the IPF weight classes, (Effective 1/1/11), the Arnold events will be falling inline with these new weight classes for all events, with the exception of the Ohio Invitational, which is strictly a USA Powerlifting event.

The new weight classes will be:

Men: up to 53kg (Sub Junior/Junior) 59kg, 66kg, 74kg 83kg, 93kg, 105kg, 120kg +120kg

In addition, those lifting in the Raw Challenge will be able to set new NAPF Raw Records under the new weight classes.

Since original entries were put in under the old weight classes, lifters will be moved into the nearest new weight class. within the next week or so.  If the new weight class you are automatically placed in is not what you want, please email nationaloffice@usapowerlifting.com with the your desired weight class.  Include your full name, event and desired weight class in the email.
