Stronger Together 2020: A Starting Strength Meet


When? Sunday, December 6, 2020

Where? Fivex3 Training, 4015 Foster Avenue, Baltimore 21224

What? Stronger Together is a Strength Meet displaying the strength of two lifters working together to form one total. Rather than competing individually, Stronger Together will require competitors to form a team of 2 and complete all 4 lifts as outlined in Starting Strength; The Deadlift, Squat, Bench and Press. Teams can be Male/Male, Male/Female or Female/Female. EACH LIFTER in the team must perform one upper body and one lower body lift. Every lifter will receive 3 attempts at each of the 2 lifts they complete. The top successful attempt will count towards each teams total. Totals will be the combination of both lifters Wilks score in a team.

The three Divisions in Stronger Together are:

This will also be broken into (if applicable):
Male/Male (Open)
Male/Female (Open)
Female/Female (Open)
Male/Male (Masters)
Male/Female (Masters)
Female/Female (Masters)

Registration fee: $100/team ($50 per person)

This fee is Non-Refundable.

Registration Form: Registration will open on Sunday, October 18, 2020! Each teammate must register separately.


Due to COVID-19, the meet will be capped at 15 teams (30 lifters) only. Masks will be worn the entire time at the gym during the lifting session. This includes all competitors, judges and volunteers.

Teams will choose which division they will compete in based on the members in their team. Teams will have the option to lift in the Open (18-40 years of age) division or Masters (40+) division. If one team member is over 40 and one team member is under 40, that team must compete in the Open division. Teams in the Masters Division will have their scores calculated by Wilks and age points (McCulloch formula). There will NOT be weight classes for this meet but there WILL be weigh-outs. No singlets, No commands, No Sumo, tons of fun.

Why? This strength meet is not only a chance for lifters to come together to compete as a team and it is also a fundraiser for the Music Therapy Program at Gilchrist Hospice of Towson. You can learn more about this program here.

We hope you can join us on Sunday, December 6, 2020!! Together, we are always STRONGER!

  1. What would be a competitive total at this meet? We’d like some lift markers, just to know what to expect. We’d be competing in male/male open.

  2. Hi Owen,
    My apologies for the late late reply. With Covid on the rise, we were not sure if we were going to run this meet or not. We have now decided that we are running it, but we are capping it at 15 teams (30 people total) and starting with in house registration first seeing if those competitors who competed last year want to do it and then if there is space left over, inviting others to register. NO spectators will be allowed. Masks on the entire time during the competition (including during the lifting portion for each lifter).

    If you think you may be interested still, please email me at This is a non-sanctioned meet.
