It’s the start of August, so here’s our updated list of the local (aka California) competition schedules for Olympic Weightlifting, Powerlifting, and Crossfit. Competitions in RED are new to the list. Competitions in BLUE are competitions that Cap City Strength members will be competing in, so put them in your calendar! I will continue to update these lists every month here on the Cap City Strength Blog.
If you’re interested in participating in any of these Olympic Weightlifting or Crossfit competitions, talk to either Coach Sean or Coach Ant.

Crossfit competitions tend to get scheduled/posted online within a month of being held and fill up quick. I find that most competitions are listed on WOD Rocket but some gyms simply post their competition info on their websites. You can also keep an eye on Facebook for upcoming Crossfit competitions. And, if you see one coming up that I haven’t posted yet, feel free to message me and I will make an announcement on the Cap City Strength Facebook page.
