Powerlifting

Powerlifting athletes compete in a grueling triathlon of human strength. Three disciplines challenge men and women to lift multiples of their body weight to a prescribed sequence. Lowering themselves from a loaded and erect position to a squat and getting back! Or, lying on a bench, bringing the load from arm extension down to the chest and back up! Or raising the weights off the floor and assuming an erect position! It is the ultimate test of strength for athletes of all sizes. Some of the strongest weighing in at just over 44 kg.

Strength counts certainly among the key ingredients of some athletic performances. And powerlifting’s lifts are the definitive measure of strength.
