Powerlifting is a strength sport measures absolute strength by lifting the most amount of weight in one repetition, much like weightlifting, involves lifting bars. What makes it different is its lifts, which are more basic technically, and that the weight is heavier and/or the range of motion reduced.
There are 3 lifts: squat, bench press and deadlift. Each competitor gets 3 attempts per lift. The best successful attempt for each lift counts toward the total. At the end of the competition, the 3 best lifts of each competitor are added together to determine the final standing. If there is a tie, the lighter competitor wins.

October 8, 2020 9:35 AMIt is with regret that we must cancel the Provincial Powerlifting and Bench Press Championship 2020. With the latest measures announced by the government and the financial risk incurred by the organizers; the board came to a unanimous decision to cancel the 2020 championship. The council also made the decision to hand over the organization of the 2021 championship to St-Hyacinthe. Gabriel and Amélie will be ready to organize a championship up to the challenge next year.
See you next year!
