XPC Powerlifting

The Xtreme Powerlifting Coalition returns to the Arnold Sports Festival for the eighth straight year in 2020, but will be in a new location.

The invitational event, directed by Dan Dague of the Xtreme Powerlifting Coalition, will return to the Greater Columbus Convention Center in 2020.

In powerlifting, there are two categories, multi-ply and classic or raw. “Multi-Ply” refers to the multiple layers of a specially designed lifting suit lifters wear which often results in a higher weight being lifted. In “Classic” or raw no special equipment or suits are allowed.

Lifters compete by lifting the maximum amount of weight in one repetition in three events for the best combined three-lift total. The events are bench press, squat and deadlift.

Cash awards will be awarded to the top coefficient lifters (body weight vs weight lifted) in each division and the first- and second-place finishes in each division. Third-place lifters will receive sponsor products.
