Big Buddha Fitness


Powerlifting is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: squat, bench press and deadlift. Powerlifting competitions may be comprised of one, two or all three of the lifting disciplines.  Athletes are categorized by sex, age and bodyweight. Each competitor is allowed three attempts at each lift, the best lift in each discipline being added to their total. The lifter with the highest total is the winner.  Whether you want to compete or not, Powerlifting can be a fantastic way to structure a strength training program.
