What Is Powerlifting?

Powerlifting is one of the three main types of competitive lifting – the other two being Olympic weightlifting and bodybuilding. Powerlifting is a sport and exercise that focuses on lifting the heaviest possible weights. Not traditionally used to just build muscle, the practice of powerlifting involves perfecting specific lifting techniques and can be incorporated into different gym and fitness routines. Powerlifting takes place in three major movement patterns:

  • The Bench Press. Performed on a flat bench and utilising the upper body muscles like chest and arms.
  • The Squat. Mainly focusing on the legs and glutes, and
  • The Deadlift. This lift requires pulling strength from your entire body with particular emphasis on your back and legs.

Powerlifting may appear quite simple but is actually a complex exercise in form and strength. A never-ending quest for perfection of technique as every weight increase demands a more skilful display of balance, mobility, and power.
