The Northside Barbell weightlifting competition

About this Event

Saint Nicholas is back in town, the days are growing shorter and darker, and even Christmas is at our doorstep. That can only mean one thing; it is time again fort he yearly KISS-meet at Northside Barbell! This time it is the fifth edition and therefore a lustrum one. The KISS-meet is known as the event where both weightlifters and powerlifters come together for a fun competition. A competition where excitement, low entry, helpfullness and a fun time are the central themes and one where you are more than welcome to participate in on the 18th of December at the ACLO sport centre.

During the KISS-meet you can participate in one of the two most important disciplines in lifting. On the one hand that means olympic weightlifting, while on the other thand there is powerlifting.

Olympic weightlifting is well known as the discipline in which you have to attempt to lift as much weight as possible in a single barbell lift. As a weightlifter, you will perform two exercises during the meet, namely the Clean & Jerk and the Snatch. Powerlifting is the second discipline, one which has the same end goal, but with three different exercises. These will be the squat, bench, and deadlift.

We will start the day around 14.00 hours with the weigh-in for both weightlifters as well as powerlifters. Within this class, you will compete against others. The weigh-in period will finish around 17.00 hours, after which the weightlifters will be opening the meet. They will do their lifts between 17.00 – 19.00 hours, to show off their skills in front of their audience. Afterwards the powerlifters will unleash their powers and between 18.00 – 22.00 hours they will show what they’ve got in store for us. Afterwards the medal ceremony will take place.

There will be a top three women and a top three men based on IPF points. Due to an enormous amount of sign-ups, the powerlift group is completely booked, but for the weightlifters there is plenty of space to bundle their powers together and make a great competition with each other. So come on down to the KISS-meet by signing up before the 7th of December via an email to info@northsidebarbell.nl. Signing up as a non-Northside Barbell member costs € 5,- per person.

The best of luck with training and we will see you soon at thé meet of students in the Netherlands.
