Coaches Warm-up Room Passes: These will be available on the arnold website starting mid February and can be purchased up to the weigh in session for your flight. For those who competed in Daytona, these will be the same. They are transferable, so if you purchase one for a coach and they are not able to attend, you can hand the pass to another coach.

All coaches must be current USA Powerlifting members.
Please use the ATHLETE CHANGE FORM to change your weight class, withdraw from an event or to register your coaches.   

You must register your coach so they have access to the warm-up room during your session.

We are finalizing the start/end times for each session on the ballroom and Main Expo stage. As you may have noticed, we have a new a new registration system in 2022 and are converting your entries to this system. Bear with us as we get some of the details worked out for the even within this new
It is important to remember that our events are drug tested. If you take ANY medication for any reason, you must verify if it if your medication is permitted or prohibited. If prohibited, a TUE (Therapeutic Use Exemption) application must be submitted. The National Office can help through that process if needed.

Verify mediations through here: Enter: Athlete > Weightlifting > then your mediation.

Additionally, many pre-workouts contain prohibited substances, whether declared on the ingredient labels or a hidden (contaminated) substance within the product. You as the athlete are responsible for what you put in your body and may cause a failure, which happened a few years ago at the Arnold. Consumer beware and only use products that are third party tested to help protect yourself.
Please visit our FAQ section of the website for more answers to common questions.

Additionally, we will be sending out more emails as we get closer the event, including where to check in, session start times, professional photography information.
