What Is Powerlifting?

Powerlifting is the sport of maximal strength. Powerlifters compete by attempting 1-rep maxes in the squat, bench press and deadlift. It’s a sport that requires much more than strength. It requires discipline, determination, mental fortitude and a desire to get better every day. People of all ages, shapes, sizes and ability levels can compete, making it one of the most accessible sports in existence.
