South Africa’s own Super League

Get ready for something different.

Super League, a combination of bodybuilding and powerlifting, will be introduced to South Africans this year.

The sport component involves competitors performing eight standard lifts that exhibit the strength of all their major muscle groups.

The other segment of the competition involves laser measurement technology that provides the analytics of an athlete’s body. South Africa’s Super League will be limited to 32 contestants. Competitors will be judged not only on their physique but also for their strength and performance.

Weight classes will consist of:

Men Super heavyweight – 108kg and over

Men Heavyweight – 99kg up to 107.99kg
