Ever popular Manchester Qualifier is back!

SILA will host the umpteenth sold out qualifier this October, and anyone interested should get their entries in as soon as possible. Once it’s full, it’s full. The intimate space of the competition gives a great atmosphere, but it also means we have to limit the entries to keep the space adequate!

This competition is hosted at the Strength therapy Gym, Manchester powerlifting and strength training hotbed and a labour of love of UK’s strongest masters powerlifter Andrzej Roszkowski. Him and his partner Alexandra Urbaniak cultivate an atmosphere of achievement and excellence at the gym, and this can be seen in the equipment. The bars, plates, monolifts and the benches are all state of the art. The competition is limited to two flights of lifting, short and intense day to produce the best results possible for all competitors.

It is intense, but newcomers still seem to find their way to SILA every year. It is not the most beginner friendly environment with medium fast pacing and intimate space, but they all seem to like it! So experienced lifters very welcome, and beginners, you will survive too!

FitXpo, the premier Fitness event of Northern England is going to invade NEC and British Powerlifting Union is on board!

AT LAST! We are hosting a Masters only competition that has great prizes for the winners! Each competitor will get a medal and a certificate, and the BEST OVERALL  ABPU and BPU female and male lifters on points coefficient (age points OF COURSE included) will receive special awards.

We do have yet to secure the great prizes, but they shall be great. Or at least they shall be prizes. Cadbury Crème eggs, if everything else fails. Half-eaten maybe, if Kalle gets to them first, but winner won’t go home empty handed!

We have been meaning to do this for years but didn’t want it to be just a gym competition. We are proud of our Masters lifters who are some of the strongest in the world. Many of whom compete in the Open classes internationally and win. We now have a place to showcase our Masters lifters, both full power and single lifters for people to see how moving into your 40s and beyond means the beginning, not the end.

The Full power competition is open to anyone 40 years of age or over, single lifts are open to anyone, but we reserve 15 places for Masters lifters. With entry, you receive a ticket to the expo for the full day. It is first come, first served! 

The OPEN division single lift flights are purely a qualifier and record breaker flights (to give the full power Masters competitors a rest!). If you are Masters and enter single lifts, you can only enter one or the other (Masters or Open flights). You may be a Masters lifter and decide to enter the open flight to teach the young ones a lesson! Up to you!

Your incentive here is that as a Masters Lifter at thie competition, you will be able to take the Open British records should you beat them which lifting in the Masters class, this includes entering the Open single lifts where you will still be able to go for the Masters records and take them. Its up to you and totally biased towards our Masters. 

The meet serves as a qualifier for British and European Championships for 2024, and, of course, you can break British records whilst qualifying!

Come and join our Masters competition, hopefully first of many to come!

THIS IS NOT AN INVITATIONAL EVENT – THIS IS NOT A MINIMUM POINTS COMPETITION – ANY Master can win the best overall, especially the older you are. It is gloves off guys – you want the best overall, you had better have your calculator with you.

A/BPU RAW(ish) CHALLENGE: a long-awaited sleeves only meet!

This one has been asked over and over again, and finally we have a competition for sleeves only lifters! If you meet the criteria above, join in to fight for the title!

RAW BENCH SUPERFLIGHT: The home of the biggest pecs!

Raw bench superflight is what it says on the tin: Raw bench, all lifters in one flight, going against each other on coefficient that takes into consideration age, bodyweight and gender! There can be only one…

OPEN DEADLIFT: One for the ones who like to pull.

This is a superflight style deadlift meet, open for anyone from first timers to world record holders. You can lift raw, medium or well done, meaning all equipment classes, weight classes, age classes, and both genders all compete against each other on points! Dead right

EQUIPPED SHOWDOWN: The most exciting form of powerlifing!

Equipped is rising through the ranks and we want to showcase the best of British equipped lifters. The WPO officials have also said they will have a close look at those who compete at this meet for next year’s invites…

EQUIPPED BENCH: Poly shirts ONLY galore!

This is a flight for those who love finesse. The most technical lift in powerlifting is the equipped bench, especially with traditional bench press shirts. It is a thing of beauty, and a thing of high blood pressure! This one is has no minimum entry criteria for all who want to try their hand at shirts or those who have done so for  years.

BOMB SQUAD: UnlimitedONLY  mayhem!

Our beloved Bomb Squad is the ultimate in inclusivity. You can wear a slingshot, insert or any other contraption used for benching. The bar goes to all directions, but at the end huge weights always get lifted! And winner takes home a big goddamn sword!

EQUIPPED BENCH FOR REPS:

In this challenge you can use bench shirts, slingshots or any other device. Women lift as many repetitions as possible with either 90kg or 130kg, men rep out with 200kg or 300kg. The one with most reps in each category gets chocolate (and a medal, but chocolate is the main thing)!

There is an outstanding team at Nottingham Strong and it is run by competitive lifters who are entirely lifter focused. Huge amounts of equipment, lots of room and lots of food! 

This venue will suit lifters all levels of experience – whether you are a first time lifters and need support and advice or whether you are a barbell weathered old meathead that needs a really good spotting crew behind you! 

Honestly – one of the best all round hosting gyms we have and you will be welcomed whatever your level.
