About Powerlifting

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.
