This event will follow the USA Powerlifting Technical Rules. As an athlete, it is your responsibility to learn the technical rules of competition and ensure that your equipment is approved. This also includes following anti-doping/drug testing guidelines. Because this is not a national event, it is not required to have IPF Approved equipment. However, your equipment must follow the specifications in the rulebook. Click below for more information on USA Powerlifting Rules and Bylaws.

As of this time, there will be no equipment check, as a part of our COVID-19 safety protocol.

This will prevent you from having a potentially embarrassing experience on the platform.
