The Beginner’s Guide to Powerlifting: Everything You’ll Ever Need to Know about Competing


My true passion lies in powerlifting. It’s an extraordinary sport in that each competition is a true measure of one’s progress. There isn’t any lying, cheating, or blaming it on someone else. There isn’t any wondering about whether or not you’ve improved. You either lift the weight or you don’t. It’s as simple as that.

I believe everyone should have the opportunity to compete. Unfortunately, many lifters are completely misinformed, overwhelmed, and totally clueless in regards to where they should begin.

“What Federation should I join?” “How do I choose my opening attempts?” “Why do I have to wear that silly looking one-piece?”

These are all common and valid questions that need to be answered prior to competing. Therefore, in an attempt to simplify the process and encourage everyone to enter into a competition, I’ve written this article that answers damn near every question a beginner lifter could possibly have. I hope you enjoy it, and if you have any questions, comments, or suggestions, feel free to leave them at the end.
