Therefore this federation operates on a system that we will give you time to be aware when a qualifier is going live and then the entries will close once full. It is your responsibility to keep checking on the web site and the federation Facebook page for these and we will not accept any responsibility if you miss it. All we can do is to give you the information, it is then up to you.

The main exercises are the deadlift, the squat and the bench press.

While there are few strict requirements to becoming a powerlifter, preparatory training helps lifters become competitive more quickly. Most powerlifting competitions operate under guidelines administered by a regional, national or international sanctioning body. The International Powerlifting Federation IPF is recognized as one of the predominant sanctioning organizations for the sport. Events sanctioned by the IPF require competitors to be at least 14 years old. Some events are invitation-only and you can only participate if you are a member of a gym or club affiliated with competition organizers.
