Useful Links

We've provided some links below that might be useful if you compete or want to compete in USA Powerlifting (USAPL). The USAPL calendar allows you to filter meets by state and competition levels to find upcoming meets. If you need a USAPL membership or need to renew your membership, that link is also provided below.

Finally, we wanted to provide a comprehensive meet day guide to competing in USAPL. Our meet day guide covers rules of competition, equipment, what to expect, and more.
