CLASSIC AND EQUIPPED POWERLIFTING:
As defined by the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF), classic lifting is
the use of only wrist wraps, knee sleeves, and a belt. Athletes must also wear a
non-supportive singlet, a form fitting t-shirt, and brief- or thong-style
undergarments (no boxers or compression shorts). If athletes are competing
equipped, by using supportive equipment, all brands and material must be
approved by the IPF. Each year the rules governing approved equipment can
change according to IPF executive rulings. Therefore, it is the athlete’s
responsibility to understand these changes. For more information on classic
and equipped lifting, and approved equipment, please visit:
http://www.powerlifting-ipf.com/Rules.17.0.html.

APU MEMBERSHIP INFORMATION:
All lifters must be members of the CPU/APU to compete. All athletes must
obtain this membership prior to the competition. Athletes will be asked to
present their membership card at weigh-ins. Failure to provide proof of
membership will result in disqualification. For CPU/APU membership, please
visit http://powerliftingab.com/Membership.htm and print the membership
form and send to James Bartlett at the address found therein.
DRUG TESTING:
The pursuit of doping-free sport is a matter of public interest. The CPU is
committed to eradicating the use of performance enhancing drugs from
powerlifting in Canada. As such, all members of the CPU, by virtue of
membership, are agreeing to submit to periodic drug testing, either at a
sanctioned CPU contest, or on a "short notice" or "no notice" out of competition
basis. It is frowned upon to enter contests knowingly using or previously using
PEDS. This action carries the risk of suspension. Doping is cheating in the
APU/CPU/IPF.
The CPU follows the guidelines of the Canadian Centre of Ethics in Sports (CCES).
The CCES sets the rules that govern doping control in Canada. Compliant to the
World Anti-Doping Agency, the CCES describes how the program is carried out
and details the process of results management, including penalties for
infractions.
Full details of the drug testing protocols that the CPU adheres to may be found
on the CCES website at: http://www.cces.ca/.
VOLUNTEERS:
Volunteers are required to help run the competitions. Spotters, bar loaders,
score table associates, and general volunteers will be needed. To volunteer,
please contact:
Ken Gavina (volunteer coordinator):
[email protected], or text 204-999-7719 (no phone calls please).
RULES:
All athletes are expected to read and understand the following article from the
APU website regarding the competition rules and procedures for the squat,
bench and deadlift:
http://www.powerliftingab.com/WhatisPL.htm.
GETTING THERE:
Transit: There are two LRT and multiple bus stops on the University of Alberta
campus. For transit routes visit

VENUE DETAILS:
The competition will be held in the Universiade pavilion (Butterdome), on the

**WORDS FOR THE FIRST-TIME LIFTER**
It is great that you want to compete and challenge yourself on the platform.
There are a few key things you need to know for meet day:
1. Your attempts are in kilograms! 1kg =2.2lbs
2. Know your rack heights and safety heights on an ER Rack. You can
measure these numbers ahead of time if possible or figure them out in the
warm-up area.
3. You must have a valid APU/CPU membership card.
4. Know what equipment is legal! This includes belts, wraps, clothing, socks,
suits and bench shirts.
5. You need legless underwear or ‘whitey tighties’. No compression shorts
of any kind!
6. You need a singlet; shorts and a t-shirt won’t do!
7. You need to wear a non-supportive t-shirt under your singlet. No
compression shirts of any kind! Unmarked cotton t-shirts are best.
8. You need knee-high socks. These are required for the deadlift portion
of the event. Wearing normal socks for the squat and bench is OK.
9. Ignorance is not a valid excuse.
