Because we like to lift heavy things and dogs are awesome.
We will be hosting a partner competition - 2 males or 2 females - with two divisions. RX and Scaled. This competition will benefit Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, and help them with all the great work they do for bully breeds!
As with all of our events, ALL NET PROCEEDS go to help the rescue we're benefitting! Nobody at Barbells For Bullies draws a salary, so we can give the maximum amount to the pups!
Prices are locked in!

Sponsored in part by:
Friends to the Forlorn Pitbull Rescue, Inc. is a volunteer-based 501(c)3 rescue and community outreach organization. Our mission is to promote responsible pitbull ownership, provide breed education, combat pet overpopulation, fight unfair legislation, find qualified homes for sound pitbull-type dogs and other dogs in need in Georgia, and help people and animals within our community.
Programming - Method to the Madness:
After doing a bunch of these all over the country we've found the below format to be the most equitable, and we've had some CLOSE competitions. WOD 1 is strength biased, so anybody that's hella strong can get ahead here. WOD 2 is about efficiency and technical proficiency under duress. WOD 3 is a beat down, just a chipper or long AMRAP where you will be deep in the pain cave.
The theme of this year's events is "One More."
As fitness people, we're all about going the extra mile - sometimes literally.
One more set.
One more rep.
One more minute.
One more pull - we're about adding that one extra. We want to take that same fervor and transpose it into rescue and animal advocacy.
Just one more volunteer.
One more hour.
One more post on social media.
One more bag of goodies for the shelter.
One more conversation to change minds.
We can all make a difference, just one more random act of kindness at a time.
Competitors that sign up before the posted date will receive a can't-buy-it-anywhere t-shirt (or tank for the ladies) courtesy of our partnerships with Wags & Weights.
