“Only one who can see the invisible can do the impossible.”
Powerlifting is a strength sport consisting of the squat, bench press, and deadlift, in that order. Each lift receives three attempts by each competitor, with athletes ordered from lightest to heaviest attempt in each round.
Powerlifting Australia (PA) is the National Sporting Organisation (NSO) for powerlifting within Australia, as sanctioned by Sport Australia. Powerlifting is governed internationally by World Powerlifting (WP) and is strictly a drug-free sport. Athletes are regularly tested by ASADA and WADA.
I’ve been a Powerlifting Coach since 2007 (see HPDev.com.au for coaching services) and train with Melbourne University Weightlifting and Powerlifting Club (MUWPC). Below are a few of the photos I’ve taken over the years.
