USC Winter Games

! Weigh-in starts at 14:00, so make sure you’re on time !

On 5 January, USC will host the first USC Winter Games: a multidisciplinary strength sports event. During the Winter Games you try (accessible) exercises from the following four disciplines:

  • Weightlifting: Clean & Jerk
  • Powerlifting: Bench press and Deadlift
  • Strongman: Yoke walk
  • Strength & Conditioning: a workout of 8 minutes

Prizes will be awarded for every discipline and for an overall winner. So, enough opportunities to win.

Everyone is welcome to join! But, make sure you’re well prepared. Take part in the training sessions, or check out the tutorial videos below.

We’ll conclude the event with a borrel at Maslow Café on Science Park!

You can sign up for the sessions separately and follow a crash course on how to perform the exercise(s) from that discipline.
