Powerlifting Contest Rules Workshop

When: Wednesday, November 27th, 2013

Where: UBC Student Union Building Room 211

In preparation for our upcoming club meet on Jan 11/12 2014, we will be holding a workshop on the rules and regulations of an International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) meet.

We’ll be going over:

  • Approved equipment (belts, attire, wraps, socks, footwear)
  • Age/weight categories
  • Weighing In (eg. missing a weight class)
  • Order of competition
  • the Squat (rules, signals, causes for disqualification)
  • the Bench
  • the Deadlift
  • Procedure for determining best lifters
  • Qualifying for provincial, national, international meets
  • Setting club, provincial, national and international records

This will be a hands on workshop where you will get to practice the lifts, so bring your lifting attire and equipment!
