Powerlifting is the ultimate strength competition. The powerlifting athlete competes
in three specific disciplines designed to measure different areas of human strength.
The disciplines, in contest order, are the squat, benchpress and deadlift. The sum or
total of the best lift in each discipline determines the winner. Specially designed
powerlifting gear is used in equipped competitions. In unequipped, or classic powerlifting, use of gear is not allowed.
