APL Powerlifting Competitions

We take pride in offering a platform for athletes of all levels to showcase their skills and passion for powerlifting. Whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting your powerlifting journey, our powerlifting competitions provide the perfect stage for you to test your mettle and challenge yourself in the three core powerlifting disciplines: squat, bench press, and deadlift.

One of the standout features of APL powerlifting competitions is our commitment to inclusivity. We welcome athletes of all backgrounds, ages, genders, and abilities to join us in the pursuit of strength and excellence. Whether you’re a teenager looking to break records or a master’s lifter aiming to prove that age is just a number, our competitions are open to all.

APL Sanctioned meets provide a comfortable and exciting atmosphere for both competitors and spectators around the country. The adrenaline-filled environment, combined with the cheers and support from the crowd adds an extra layer of motivation for lifters to give it their all. The sound of weights clanking, the scent of chalk in the air and the sight of personal records being shattered make for an unforgettable experience.
