Hello lifters,


Well, 2022 has bit Bent Bar Powerlifting in the butt already. We have had to move our venue for our State Championships. Instead of the event being held at the Holiday Inn in Latham we are now running States at CrossFit House Party located in Clifton Park. This is roughly about 12 miles north or a 16-20 minute ride from the original venue.


I apologize but the situation was out of our control and due to the negligence of others we are forced to relocate. If you had already booked a room there is no need to cancel unless you wanted to be close to the venue. I recently updated our website with some information about the venue and hotels in the area.


The new venue will be:

CrossFit House Party

(formerly the GBox)

1208 NY-146

Clifton Park, NY 12065


More info can be found here about hotels and whatnot. There is plenty to do in Clifton Park.

We will still be having our food truck on-site supplying us with quality eats for the 2-day event. Plus there are countless food options and markets to grab whatever you need.


Again I apologize and I hope you all stay with us because this event will be one for the ages. Since we aren't requiring qualifying totals it could also be a great first-time meet for someone looking to dip their feet in the powerlifting pool.


If anyone has any questions please feel free to reach out to me.

Hello lifters,


We are a little over 9 weeks out from the 2022 USA Powerlifting New York State Championships. Currently, we are sitting at 106 lifters and the cap is 120. So that means we have 14 spots left. The registration deadline is April 15th at midnight.


I would like to remind you all to either renew or purchase your memberships if you haven't done so already. I will be building flights in less than a month so there will be more emails from me for sure. Please read this email in its entirety as there is some important information below.


USA Powerlifting has released a new intermediate rulebook with some new rules about what can be worn and also what doesn't need to be worn on the competition platform. Please take a minute, or more, to review the new rulebook. Click here for the rulebook


Review the Athlete Information page for the schedule of events on meet day.


Please check the Event Information to see information about the venue, local hotels, our photographer, and future updates about our food truck that will be on-site both days.


Anyone looking to change weight classes, add another division, withdraw from the meet or purchase another meet shirt, can do that by going to our Athlete Change Form and submitting that request. Weight class changes will be accepted up to 2 weeks out from the competition date.


Lastly, make sure you visit the Our Sponsor's page to see our sponsors for the event. Here are our sponsors for the competition. Thank you to them for stepping up and supporting Bent Bar Powerlifting!!



If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me.

Good afternoon athletes,


We are a little over 5 weeks out from the 2022 USA Powerlifting New York State Championships. Our roster is full and we are slowly pulling people from the waitlist as people withdraw. The current waitlist is closed as all spots will not be filled.

Anyone still needing to purchase or renew their membership please do so here: USA Powerlifting Membership


!!!Important!!!

We have made a change to the Sunday session it will impact all lifters lifting on that day. Yes, you are still lifting on Sunday but you might be competing in the morning instead of the afternoon now. Please refer to the Athlete Information link below to go and check this new schedule out.


We have secured all of the National level or higher referees we need for athletes to be able to set American records. If you intend to set American records make sure you have checked out the Lifting Database for the most current records. Our scoring table will have a copy of the most current records on meet day as a backup. Anyone breaking Open American record will be subject to drug testing protocol.
