Throughout this rule book, for reasons of brevity, wherever the words “he” or “his” occur, such reference is deemed to apply to either sex.

1. (a) The International Powerlifting Federation recognizes the following lifts which must be taken in the same sequence

in all competitions conducted under IPF rules :

–  –  –

(b) Competition takes place between lifters in categories defined by sex, bodyweight and age. The Men’s and Women’s Open Championships permit lifters of any age in excess of 14 years. In the event of an Open Championships being combined e.g. with a Sub-Junior or Junior Championships, a lifter has the option of competing in either the Junior Championships, or the Open, and receive the award for only that in which he/she competed.

(c) The rules apply to all levels of competition.

(d) Each competitor is allowed three attempts on each lift. The lifter’s best valid attempt on each lift counts toward his competition total. If two or more lifters achieve the same total, the lighter lifter ranks above the heavier lifter.

(e) If two lifters register the same bodyweight at the weigh in and eventually achieve the same total at the end of the competition, the lifter making the total first will take precedence over the other lifter. Where awards are presented for best squat, bench press and deadlift or if a World record is broken, the same procedure will apply.

2. The IPF, through its member federations, conducts and sanctions the following World Championships:

Men’s and Women’s combined Open World Championships Men’s and Women’s combined Sub-Junior & Junior World Championships Men’s and Women’s combined Masters’ World Championships Men’s and Women’s combined Open, Junior & Sub-Junior Bench Press World Championships Men’s and Women’s combined Masters’ Bench Press World Championships Men’s and Women’s combined Open, Junior & Sub-Junior Classic/Raw Powerlifting World Championships Men’s and Women’s combined Masters’ Classic/Raw Powerlifting World Championships (in 2014 and 2015 they will be held in conjunction with the World Classic/Raw Open & Junior & Sub-Junior Championships)

3. The IPF also recognizes and registers world records for the same lifts within the categories described hereunder:

–  –  –

Women – Open: from the day she reaches 14 years and upwards (no category restrictions need apply).

Sub-Junior: from the day she reaches 14 years and throughout the full calendar year in which she reaches 18 years.

Junior: from 1 January in the calendar year she reaches 19 years and throughout the full calendar year in which she reaches 23 years.

Master I: from 1 January in the calendar year she reaches 40 years and throughout the full calendar year in which she reaches 49 years.

Master II: from 1 January in the calendar year she reaches 50 years and throughout the full calendar year in which she reaches 59 years.

–  –  –

Competitive lifting shall be restricted to competitors aged 14 years and older.

4. Placing for all age groupings shall be determined by the totals of the lifters in accordance with the standard rules of lifting. Also Men 70 years (i.e. Master IV) of age, to receive medals for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in their weight classes, and Women both 60 years (i.e. Master III) and 70 years (i.e. Master IV) of age, to receive medals for placing 1st, 2nd and 3rd in their weight classes in each age category. Age categories and their further subdivision may be adapted for use nationally at the discretion of the National federation.

Bodyweight categories:

–  –  –

5. Each nation is allowed a maximum of eight competitors spread throughout the range of the eight bodyweight categories for men and seven competitors throughout the range of seven bodyweight categories for women. Junior and Sub-Junior nine for men and eight for women. There must not be more than two competitors from any one nation in any particular bodyweight category.

6. Each nation is allowed a maximum of five alternates or reserves. To take part in the competition they must been nominated 60 days before the date of the championships on the preliminary nomination with the bodyweight categories and best totals achieved at National or international championships during the last 12 months.

7. Each Nation must submit a team roster giving the name of each lifter and his/her body weight category. Personal bests from National or International Championships during the previous 12 months shall be stated. This may include his/her result achieved at last year’s International Championships in the same bodyweight category. The date and title of the competition in which the total was achieved must also be stated. These details must be submitted to the Championship Secretary of the IPF or Region and also the Meet Director at least 60 days before the date of the Championships on the preliminary nomination. Final selection, submitted not later than 21 days before the date of the Championship, must be made from those nominated 60 days before the date of the Championships. This is inclusive of reserve or alternate lifters. At this point in time each lifter must nominate the bodyweight category in which they wish to lift in these Championships. After the final selection (final nomination) no changes in the weight category in which the lifter is nominated will be allowed. Nominated lifters without results from any of the above Championships will be ranked in the IPF Technical Rules Book 4 January 2015 Technical Rules book of the International Powerlifting Federation first group to lift if his/her bodyweight category will be split into groups. Failure to comply with any of these requirements may result in disqualification of the offending team. A lifter cannot produce a qualifying total via his national federation for entry to World, International or Regional Championships while he is under suspension by the IPF or Region.

8. Point scoring for all World, Continental and Regional Championships shall be: 12, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2, for the first 9 placing in any bodyweight category. Thereafter, each lifter who makes a total in the competition shall be awarded one point. Point scoring for all national competitions shall be at the discretion of the national federation.

9. Only the point scores of the five best placed lifters of each nation will be counted for the team competition at all international championships. In case of a tie in points scored, final team placing shall be decided for team awards as in item 11.

If a member of a team is found to have committed a violation of the IPF Anti-Doping Rules during an Event where a team ranking is based on the addition of individual results (points), the points of the Athlete committing the violation will be subtracted from the team result and may not be repeated by the resulting points of another team member.

10. Any nation having been a member of the IPF for more than three years should include at least one international referee among its team officials at world championships. If a referee from that nation is not present or, if present, makes himself unavailable to act in the capacity of either referee or member for jury during the championships, then only the four best placed lifters from that nation will be counted for the team competition.

11. Team awards shall be given for the first three places. In the case of a tie for the classification of a team or a nation, the team having the largest number of first places will be ranked first. In the case of a tie between two nations having the same number of first places, the one having the most second places will be classified first, and so on through the placing of the maximum of five scoring lifters. Should teams or Nations finish equally after this procedure has been applied, then the team or Nation with the greater total number of Wilks points will be declared the higher placed.

12. At all IPF Championships a “Best lifter” award shall be given to the lifter who produces the best performance based upon the Wilks formula. Awards will also be presented to second and third places.

13. At International Championships, medals will be presented for first, second and third places for each category based upon totals. In addition medals or merit award certificates shall be presented for first, second and third places in the individual lifts of squat, bench press and deadlift in each category.

Should a lifter fail to succeed in either or both of the squat or bench press disciplines he/she may continue to compete for the remainder of the contest, and the lifter will be eligible for awards in any discipline in which he/she records a successful lift or lifts. To receive this award the lifter must make a bona fide attempt on each of the three disciplines.

Dress code for athletes at World Championships medal ceremonies is – full team track suit, T-shirt, athletic footwear.

Compliance will be monitored by the Technical Controller for the session. Failure to adhere to these requirements shall disqualify the lifter from receiving the medal(s), although their place in contest results will stand.

14. It is forbidden to whip and smash the lifter in front of the audience and media.


Scales Scales must be of an electronic digital type and register to the second place of decimals. They must have the capacity to weigh up to 180 kg. A scales certificate to accompany the scales must be current to within one year of the date of the competition.

Bars and Discs For all powerlifting contests organized under the rules of the IPF, only disc barbells are permitted. The use of discs which do not meet the current specifications will invalidate the contest and any records accomplished. Only those bars and discs that meet all specifications may be used throughout the entire competition and for all lifts. The bar shall not be changed during the competition unless it is bent or damaged in some way as determined by the Technical Committee, Jury or Referees. Bars to be used at all IPF Championships shall not be chromed on the knurling. Only bars and discs that have official IPF approval may be used at IPF World Championships or the setting of World Records. As from 2008 the “knurling” distances on IPF approved bars will become universal/standard based on one of the originally approved bars.
