    Ironman Lifting

    Is now defined as no supportive gear, no wraps, no belt, and no drugs. It includes all 3 lifts. Ironman II is the same as Ironman except that a belt is allowed

    Open Back/Closed Back - terms used to describe a style of bench shirt.

    Chalk - chalk or magnesium carbonate powder used to aid grip.

    Baby Powder - often applied to the front of the legs in order to assist sliding of the bar along the legs on the deadlift.

    Rack Pulls, Rack Presses, Rack Squats - assistance exercises done with pins set at a desired height (usually above full ROM) to improve lockout strength or assist in breaking through sticking points.

    Auxillary Exercises - any exercises that do not directly work muscles or simulate movements involved in the Big 3.

    "The Big Three" - the three competitive lifts in the sport of powerlifting. They are the squat, bench, and deadlift.

    Full Power - a powerlifting meet in which all of the "Big 3" lifts will be contested.

    Ironman - a powerlifting meet in which only the Bench and Deadlift will be contested.
