Is it possible to enter IPO meets and only deadlift... and maybe squat?

Or do you have tio do all three?

I beleive there is 2 competitions;
- Bench press only and
- All 3 combined

Have a look around the Aussie powerlifting site http://www.powerliftingaustralia.com/

I just looked at the Sydney results and theres a hole right where I would of competed in the 82.5kg divsion. If I had competed I would of won that division easily. However if I was in any other divsion, I would of being blown out of the water.

Fuzzy, this chart shows local Sydney results and shows BP only and all 3. Seems you have to learn to bench and swat.

Seems you have to learn to bench and swat. YEP.. nothing like learning to SWAT!! I love Swatting... :moon:

Anyway.. fuzzy, I don't know about IPO.. but there are other feds where you can just enter and do a DL..

WABDL has meets where you can compete in DL only. I'm sure other feds do, too. Squat only is much rarer.

Push-pull meets usually allow you to do one or the other. Full meets you'd generally have to do at least a token SQ & BP.

Guess Ill have to do that.

Bneching and pushing movements are a little tricky right now...

SO ill just become a squat jockey!
