About This Organizer

The United States Powerlifting Association (USPA) is a leading powerlifting organization in the United States.
It is the mission of the USPA to provide powerlifting competition of uniform high quality which is available to all athletes who meet the criteria for membership throughout the United States.

 

Powerlifting vs Weightlifting

Distinct from weightlifting, a sport made up of two lifts: the Snatch and the Clean-and-Jerk, where the weight is lifted above the head, powerlifting comprises three lifts: the 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. In cases where two or more lifters achieve the same total, the person with the lightest bodyweight wins.
