SCORING INFORMATION 


Scoring in ARWLWA competitions follows the IAWA in using the Lynch formula, which is a method of ranking lifters of all bodyweights.  The formula is:

                      Lynch points = Total weight lifted x Lynch factor

The Lynch factor can be looked up on the table below.

For Junior and Masters age groups, and for the Overall Best Lifter rankings, the Lynch points are then adjusted to account for age as follows:

                      Age adjusted Lynch points = Lynch points + (age percent x Lynch points)

The age percent for juniors is:

                      12 and under = 33%

                      13 = 25%

                      14 = 20%

                      15 = 15%

                      16 = 10%

                      17 = 5%

                      18 = 3%

                      19 = 2%

The age percent for masters is:

                      40 = 1%

                      Each year over 40 = 1% for each additional year
