The American Powerlifting Committee (http://www.americanpowerliftingcommittee-usa.com) was incorporated in 2003.
The APC promotes equipped and raw powerlifting, Bench Press only, Push Pull, and Deadlift only competitions.
The APC supports two unique international powerlifting federations:
The Global Powerlifting Alliance (http://www.globalpowerliftingalliance.com) was formed in 2009 to fulfill the need for a World Organization devoted only to Raw Powerlifting. It was the first to do so.
The International Powerlifting Organization (http://www.internationalpowerliftingorganization.com) was formed in 2012 to provide a format for equipped only lifters.
The APC, GPA, and IPO are all similar in rules, lifter classifications, and judging. The partnership of the three federations has standardized powerlifting to provide a format for all lifters, raw and equipped, with fairness to all worldwide.
We invite you to join us and further unite the world’s greatest sport POWERLIFTING!
