A couple of announcements...
A portion of the proceeds from the event will go towards purchasing some kettlebells and equipment that will be donated to the local Marine recruiting station here in Portsmouth! This will enable them to better prepare future Marines for the rigors of basic training. So here's the deal, on the day of the event we will have a donation bucket that will go towards the equipment fund for the Portsmouth Recruiting Station. The gym will match up to $500 whatever you guys donate. So a nice lil $1000 gift certificate from Rogue Fitness will go a long way to better prepare our local young men and women enlisting in the Marines.
Secondly, I want to send a HUGE thanks to our sponsors so far, they've allowed us to really make this event bigger and badder and really help the equipment donation possible.

We are trying to line up a half day of awesomeness. We've got a few things in the works that you guys will really dig. But we're always looking for more awesome sponsors to step up to the plate.
As promised as we get closer to the dates we will release different hints and clues about what to expect. Be sure to like the PSKC Facebook page to stay up to date on all the latest and greatest.
So without further adieu, the first of the four events at the 2012 Gauntlet will be a deadlift ladder! At the start of the event, the contestants will have 45 seconds to attempt a successful lift. They will then have 15 seconds to transition to the next weight if the lift is successful. Only conventional style deadlift is permitted. The following are the weights for male/female:
*In the event the contestant makes it to the last weight. It then becomes a 1 minute as many reps as possible event. Score is determined by total number of reps completed.
Keep in mind this is only 1 of the 4 events you'll be participating in during the course of the day. We will post more hints/details in the coming weeks. In the meantime get signed up now! If you don't want to compete we can definitely use your help as a volunteer/judge. Get ahold of one of us to let us know!
So get in now to guarantee your spot of this awesomeness!!
