I was intrigued and set out to complete the 2nd Quarter Postal Meet events which included Crucifix, Strict Curl and Deadlift - No Thumbs.
The Crucifix was a really tough movement. I ended up going 3 for 3 at 10, 15 and 20#
The Strict Curl was easier than I expected and I went 3 for 3 again at 71, 81 and 87#
The Deadlift No Thumbs seemed easy, but I failed my 3rd lift. I had success at 263 and 283# and failed 293#. I broke it off the ground, but could not hold on.
I intend to apply for membership and participate in club events.
The USAWA was actually mentioned in an January 1, 2003 article called The Odd Lifts.
