A Call to Arms!

In 2019, nearly 30 athletes from around the world converged on Columbus, Ohio to take part in the first inaugural Arnold Armlifting Championships.

This year we are trying to get more stage time to offer more than 3 events, but for the time being the events are going to be Ironmind Silver Bullet Hold, Ironmind Axle Deadlift, and Ironmind Rolling Thunder.

To make it easier for our athletes to secure travel reservations and encourage a larger field, we are breaking up the contest into the following days:

Friday - all women's divisions

Saturday - lightweight men's divisions

Sunday - heavyweight men's divisions

There will be a limit of 12 athletes per day. Are you one of the Top 12 who will compete?

Leaderboard spots, rankings, and Team USA spots are up for grabs at this competition.

Who can Compete?

The Arnold Armlifting Championships is one of the highest caliber events in the sport of Armlifting. Here's how the eligibility breaks down:

If you competed in the 2019 Arnold Armlifting Championships, you get an automatic invite! You can sign up at any time, but I would recommend doing that before your competition day fills up. 

We also seek to invite top pedigreed strength athletes in other disciplines like strongman and powerlifting.
