Test your strength in the Show of Strength

Want to test your strength against your fellow Eagles?

On Saturday, November 8 at 10 a.m. in the Fitness Center of the RAC you will have your chance.

Compete in the Show of Strength and see where you stand against others.

There are three events during the competition: Bench Press, Squat, and Deadlift.

A competitor does not have to compete in all three events, but if they want to medal then they will have too.

Medals are given to the top three in each weight class and plaques will be given to the overall top male and female competitors.

There is no age limit either, so don’t feel like you are too old or young to compete.

The event typically lasts four hours but Clif Bars are provided for the competitors.

Because of the event the Free Weight Room will be closed Friday afternoon and all day Saturday.

The first strength competition began in 2006 as a way for students to showcase their strength.

“There are typically many spectators at the event that cheer on our participants. It’s a great environment to compete!” said Rodgers.


The deadline to register is November 6 and there is a maximum of 35 competitors. The event is free for RAC members but is $10 for non-RAC members.
