The registration for The Big 2 (weightlifting) and The Big 3 (powerlifting) has started. The qualifiers both will have six workouts. All six workouts are the same. It is a format of a small individual weightlifting and powerlifting competition with an introduction, a weigh in and 3 attempts for each part/lift. The results on the leaderboard are based on the best total. The best 10 lifters of each subdivision will be invited to the finals. For masters (35+ and higher) every 5 best lifters of each subdivision will be invited.

 

The five lifts of this strength event are snatch, clean & jerk, backsquat, benchpress and deadlift. To qualify for the Big 5 (finals) athletes will conduct both the qualifier for The Big 2 (weightlfting) and The Big 3 (powerlifting). Once there is a score for both qualifiers the athlete will appear autimatically on the leaderboard of The Big 5. So athletes don't have to register and pay any fee to enroll in The Big 5 competition. The ranking is based on the total score of The Big 2 and The Big 3. The 10 best lifters in each bodyweight category will be invited to the finals. For masters (35+ and higher age) the first five athletes will be invited.

The finals of The Big 2, The Big 3 and The Big 5 will take place in The Netherlands in the weekend of the 7th and 8th november 2020. Because it is the first edition of this competition the location will be announced as soon there is an indication of the amount of entries. We need an estimation to decide which venue is suitable for the finals.
