ABOUT THE UNITED LADIES OF IRON: Multiple states in the United States will hold a WOMEN’S ONLY event on the same date, April 30, 2022. Scoring will be done via LiftingCast. This will allow all competitors to compete against women all over the United States at the same time without being in the same place. These combined results will be entered into the lifting database as “United Ladies of Iron” to form, possibly, the largest women’s only powerlifting event! Each lifter will also compete against the lifters at their local event. Awards and placings will be given to those on location as well as the nation wide placings. Each local event will award the top 3 places in each weight class and age division. In addition, the top 3 in each weight class and age division will be awarded to the winners of United Ladies of Iron.
Participating States: Connecticut, Georgia, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, New York, Ohio, Texas, Washington, and Wisconsin.

Weigh-Ins begin promptly at 7:00am and will be done in order by Lot Number. Have your ID and 1st attempts in kilograms ready. If you are not present when your name is called, you will be called again after all other athletes have weighed in.
Rack Heights are important! We will help you find the correct rack height for squat & bench press (with foot blocks if necessary) so you are comfortable on the platform.
Equipment Check is imperative. We need to see everything you’ll be wearing on the platform.
