The Chaos Hardcore Barbell club do an annual power triathlon, where we do 9 lifts in 9 minutes - 3 sq, 3 dl, 3 bp - very exciting - all nine lifts count towards total - Wilks formula decide overall winner -

Sounds like a damn good time. Are they performed in waves of 3, meaning squat bench deadlift in 3 minutes, then rest and determine weight for next wave?

We think it is an awesome concept, much different from the normal powerlifting meets that go on for days lol - there is 3 platforms ready at all time , lifter can do any sequence ( next 1 the rules will change that you are not allowed to do for eg. 2 squats in a row - no fixed sequence that work the best - raw - just knee wraps and belt - scoreboard is updated with every lift past ( audience know exactly who is winning at that stage - lifters lift from light to heavy - lifters that competed in previous comp get advantage and lifting last ( in order of results from previous comp )

That is a pretty bad ass Idea. Although I still stick with traditional all day meets where I can have a 5course meal and sleep in between each lift ;) but its cool to see how someone's conditioning differs. And also sounds great for GPP!
