USA Powerlifting New Rule Update

As of January 1, 2019, USA Powerlifting has a couple of new rules that have to do with the type of clothes you may, may not, or must wear when competing at a USA Powerlifting meet:

  • Lifters now have the option of wearing boxer briefs with legs. Bike/compression shorts are still not allowed to be worn during weigh-in or on the platform.
  • A t-shirt must be worn for all lifts, including the deadlift, by both male and female competitors.

Please become familiar with these simple changes to the rules. USA Powerlifting New Hampshire will be following the new rules at our first meet of the year, the Granite State Grand Prix III, on Sunday, January 27.
