Qualifying standards

Qualifying standards for the provincial and national championships.

Depending on your age class, determine your qualifying class minimum necessary to qualify for the provincial or national championships. Then depending on whether you want to participate in powerlifting or bench press only, you will find the total minimum or bench press or the minimum necessary to qualify for your weight class.

Example:

A 18 year old man (Sub-junior) who lift in powerlifting in -74kg and in the classic division, must have a minimum qualification of Class VI to qualify for the provincial championship. So it must have a minimum total of 345 kg.
