Power-lifting for the Strong People

Power-lifting first step to Bodybuilding that’s what my friend think and I think it’s a good decision too. To gain rapor and establish familiarization to people. I only got to watch two times the actual bodybuilding but my friend is still shy to join that contest but last year he started to join the powerlifting competition in our city to experience the trill and drill of the contest so that if the time comes that he’s ready to join the bodybuilding business he is not shy anymore.


Photos of the competition, I don’t know how heavy this barbell is but they said it weight 5 kls of rice or something.

Powerlifting is a strength sport. It resembles the sport of Olympic weightlifting, as both disciplines involve lifting weights in three attempts. Powerlifting evolved from a sport known as ‘odd lifts’ which followed the same three attempt format but used a wide variety of events akin to Strongman events. Eventually odd lifts became standardized to the three events squat, bench press, and deadlift. They can compete raw or equipped (that is, with or without certain supportive equipment).
Competitions take place across the world but mostly in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Russia and Ukraine. It has been a Paralympic sport since 1984 and under the IPF, is also a World Games sport.
