Seal Row World Record Showdown

2:nd Edition, 2022

This challenge is about lifting as heavy as possible, 1 Rep Max, for an overall World Record (WR) title by score (male OR female),
and two WR’s by pulling the highest barbell load (male AND female).
To win on points is considered the most prestigious and he/she who wins it is therefor the true World Champion on the platform, that day.

New WR, man or woman on RGA Points wins 7.500 SEK.
New WR, man and woman to pull the highest weight wins 3.000 SEK, each.
Yep you read it right! Win both on points and highest load and you walk home with 10.500 SEK!
NOTE: If no new records are broken on the day of the contest, you will receive 60% of the prize sum.


To qualify you need to get at least 90 points (check your score in the Barbell Weight Calculator below) on a bench not thicker than 9 cm. Both the RGA and Eleiko Seal Row bench is directly approved. Using another bench requires measuring (video or picture).
