I'm organizing a strength challenge. One event is a truck push. There are two categories, male and female and all competitors (various bodyweights ie male body weights: 155 - 267 lbs) will push the same truck for the same distance. Any ideas, formulas, equations etc. to help determine the superior competitor according to their bodyweight-"pound for pound". I planned on using the Wilks Formula for most of the events however since speed will be the main factor for the truck push this particular formula will not work.
Any and all help is much appreciated. Todd.

If folks are going a set distance and you are recoding the time to completion you could divide the body weight by the time. Lower scores being better?

If you want to apply The Wilks formula to Power, I think you could just apply the coefficient to 1/t.

Thanks for the responses guys!

Brian, Could you please draft a sample.
Lets say we have a male competitor:
Bodyweight = 265 lbs
Wilks Coefficient = .5747
Truck = 3000 lbs
Distance Pushed = 100 feet
Time to push = 27 seconds

Thanks again in advance for any help folks!
