The Australian Strongman Alliance always had the goal of making the sport more accessible to athletes. Most importantly we wanted to have fair and balanced weight classes to ensure quality competition.


There are the standard weight classes listed below, 5 women and 5 men.


Under 62.5kgs

Under 72.5kgs

Under 82.5kgs

Open Women

Masters Women (40 years and over at time of competition)



Under 80kgs

Under 90kgs

Under 105kgs

Open Men

Masters Men (40 years and over at time of competition)



Weighing in:

Standard rules for the weight classes and weighing in apply for all ASA qualifiers and Nationals events. Athletes will be able to weigh in a maximum of 24 hours before the first lifts start on competition day. For example, if the first weight class lifts at 10:00am on the Sunday,then weigh-ins for all classes can not start before 10:00am on the Saturday.

As the classes are listed as “Under 80kgs” the athletes will have to weigh in under the listed weight, ie: weigh in at 80kgs, that athlete would compete in the under 90kgs category. Weigh in at 79.9kgs or under to be in the under 80kgs category.
