FNQ Powerlifting held its first competition last weekend in conjunction with the team at CrossFit North Queensland.
There were 20 participants, both male and female, taking part in the competition, which focused on the three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. All competitors walked away satisfied with many breaking their one rep max, recording new personal bests.
Spectators and competitors were also treated to a delicious barbecue lunch. The success of this event shows that there is a strong interest of the sport within the Townsville community and supports the establishment of a powerlifting club.

The winners were determined using The Wilks Formula. This formula is used to compare the strength of powerlifters against each other despite the different weights of the lifters. Lifters on the day ranged from 57kg to 104kg.
