Power Lifting

Power lifting is comprised of three lifts: squat, bench press and dead lift. Power lifting competitions may be comprised of one, two or all three of the lifting disciplines.

Athletes are categorised by sex, age and body weight. Each competitor is allowed three attempts at each lift, the best lift in each discipline being added to their overall total. The lifter with the highest total in their respective age and weight class will be declared the winner.
