Try A Virtual Powerlifting Meet From The Comfort Of Your Home Gym

The three events of a powerlifting meet — the squat, bench press, and deadlift — are easy enough to learn and train at home. And so plenty of us have trained these lifts regardless of whether we have an opportunity to show off at a meet. So if you’ve been hanging out in a home gym and might like a little friendly competition, check out the #GarageGymCompetition that’s happening right now on Reddit and Instagram.

The rules are simple: you do a squat, a bench, and a deadlift in your home gym, and upload all three videos in a single post to Instagram, tagged with #GarageGymCompetition.

Most aspects of the lift are judged on the honour system: follow the guidelines and do your best with the weights you have. To join the official competition (and be eligible for raffle prizes), you have to post your entry this week.
