Information

Events: Power Clean, Curl, Bench Press & Deadlift.

Intent of this Contest - This contest will help you become a serious lifter. You will learn first hand how important it is to make good attempt selection,  train wisely, pace yourself, improve your form, technique and leverage and become an over all better lifter. By scoring points in any NASA event the playing field is evened by allowing less advanced lifters to lift more often and more score points to compete with the more advanced lifters. Masters Lifters get the added advantage of the Masters/Sub Masters Nationals which is also conducted with the Regional event. The over all intent of this contest is to sharpen and shape good lifters into great lifters.

Who Can Win This Year Long Event - There are two ways to win this year long event. 1) Be a great lifter who hits mainly State, Regional and a few National Events or 2) Be a very good lifter or a Master lifter and go the route of endurance and quantity of meets. This event is not a sprint. We do this so the playing field is evened and all lifters can have a chance to win by two distinctly different routes. Meets are the sprints for this sport. This event, Men of Steel, is a marathon. Every lifter in NASA has an opportunity to win this event if they are consistent, smart and can weather a year long series of events. It truly takes a Man of Steel to do a dozen meets in a year and not get a serious injury, maintain a constant high level of performance and choose meets where you can maximize your efforts. It's a trade off, some lifters have huge Totals and some have the ability to perform each and every month to build their points. The endurance lifters have the added expense of extra meets plus the added chance for injury while the better lifters have the luxury of getting huge Totals in fewer meets. Again, this is why this event is called the "Men of Steel" and it truly is a marathon of events. We do single meets, with belts awarded to prove the better individual meet lifters and we conduct the "Men of Steel" contest to see who is truly a Man of Steel.

Competition: Each "Men of Steel" Competitor must be entered in both the Power Clean and the Power Sports Full meet. There are no weight classes and only one division, Man of Steel and Woman of Steel. This event is being created for competition purposes. if you want to compete, enter.

Scoring: The Lifter's TL Coefficient for his/her Power Clean will be added to his/her Power Sports TL Coefficient to reach the Over-All "Man of Steel" Total for each individual meet. Over-All National Scoring will be kept by NASA Headquarters. See "Scoring" below.

Equipment Allowed: Maximum 4" wide lifting belt & non-supportive wrestling singlet. Wrist Wraps may be used during the Power Clean only but not during the Curl, Bench Press or Deadlift.

Entry Fee: There is no individual entry fee for the Man of Steel" competition. All Lifters who enter the Power Clean and Full Power Sports will automatically be entered into the "Man of Steel" competition. There will be a one time $50.00 Registration Fee for those who become part of the "Man of Steel" program. See registration form below. Lifters can sign up at any time during the first 6 months of this program but scores and points will NOT be registered until this registration fee is paid in full.

Rules: All Rules for the Power Clean and Power Sports can be found in the NASA Rulebook and it is the responsibility of each lifter entering to know these rules before the actual competition. Lifters who enter the Power Press portion of the meet and intends to compete for the Man of Steel Championship may not use wrist wraps during the Bench Press or Curl. Wraps MAY be used while performing the Power Clean only in Man of Steel Competition. NASA's entire Rule Book can be found here.

 

Scoring-

Scoring: The following multipliers will be used for All NASA Meets Over-All scoring Only. Each meet will be assigned a multiplier which will be used to give bonus points for lifters who compete in National Events. All NASA Meets will earn the lifter points. The multipliers are:

All Official NASA National Meets - 1.25 times the lifters actual meet Total Coefficient

NEW-Beginning at the World Cup in August, 2014 for the 2014-2015 Contest - These 4 Mega Meets will have Bonus Multipliers of 1.5 times Total Coefficient. These meets are: Natural Nationals, USA Nationals, Masters Nationals and the World Cup.

All Official NASA "State" Meets - 1.10 times the lifter's actual meet Total Coefficient

All other NASA meets such as Open, Regional, Grand, Classic or Special Event type meets: The lifters actual meet Total Coefficient will be used but no special multipliers will be used or accepted.

Double Sanctioned Events - In meets that have a National Event and a Regional/State Event a lifter can score double points if they enter both meets the same weekend. Meets such as the Masters Nationals & Texas Regional will allow lifters who are Masters/Sub Masters the opportunity to score points in both contests.

 

AWARDS-

Results will be kept by NASA from the NASA World Cup until the NASA World Cup each year. The Over-All Winners will be determined by the final results of the NASA World Cup each year. Preliminary Prizes the first year will be the following:
