Big Deadlifts = Opportunity at the Arnold 2017!

In an effort to give US Strongman athletes as much opportunity as we can, YOUR United States Strongman has joined forces with Danny Dague and the XPC to bring you the XPC: 21Deadlift Salute!

There will be 3 platforms and 21 lifters on the main stage at the Arnold on Sunday, March 5, 2017. There will be 7 open women, 7 LW men (220 and down) and 7 HW men (221 and up). US Strongman will have three athlete spots available; one in each class. The heaviest puller in each class will receive $1500!

We will hold a list of qualifers across the country at US Strongman meets. In December 2016 at Hope 10 the biggest pullers of the year will be announced! And, of course Hope will feature a DEADLIFT Finals! We will be following XPC rules (no straps, no hitch, sumo is allowed and can wear whatever gear you like!)

It is simple, pull the biggest and you are on the main expo stage at the 2017 Arnold pulling in front of 20,000 of your friends and fans! We will have more information coming soon on the XPC: 21 Deadlift Salute Page.
