Welcome to USA Powerlifting Wisconsin !
We are a member of USA Powerlifting, which is the leading national level organization in the US and is an affiliate of the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF).
Powerlifting consist of three lifts, the squat, the bench, and the deadlift. There are a variety of competitions, some that include all three lifts and some that are single lift. In a competition athletes can be divided in to groups based on weight categories, gender, type of equipment, and/or age so there is a place for everyone to compete!
Information about USA Powerlifting rules can be found on their Rules and Bylaws page.
Wisconsin also has a long history of supporting lifting at the High School level and having a number of excellent junior and sub-junior lifters. Information on the Wisconsin High School Powerlifting Association can be found on the WHSPA site.
