Due to the evolving circumstances of the COVID-19 Pandemic, PowerX Sport continues to be on hold. We hope this is only a temporary situation, and that the future still holds a place for lifting competitions. As always our focus is on the health of the athletes. We will not put the lifters at risk of exposure to the virus, or contribute to the spread of it. Creating a safe environment for PowerX competitions is very difficult and we have not yet devised a way to host PowerX events going forward. The Arnold Sports Festival may or may not happen in its regular format in 2021 and PowerX may or may not be included. We wish there were more answers and a conclusion to the COVID-19 situation.

In the meantime, we are experimenting with a new format for PowerX Sport! Try these two options in your next workout and let us know what you think:

- 60 seconds total performance with as many reps you can get
- 60 seconds total performance or 10 reps max, whichever comes first.

Tell us what you think and why the change could work – we’d love to hear back from you. We hope you’re able to exercise and workout during this unusual time.  Be safe and well. “When in doubt, Go work out!”
