Power Lift Challenger Determining Factors: 

Power Lift Challenger (for reps) determining factors: Athletes compete for reps in 1 or up to 4 different lifting categories, in this order Bench Press, Deadlift, Strict Curl and Cheat Curl. The amount of weight on the bar is determined by gender, age and/or division, lift and actual body weight x a predetermined percentage of body weight. Remember, Power Lift Challenger events are maximum rep contests, not to be mistaken for single lift Powerlifting competitions. Standard “Open” averages in weight percentages for each lift: Bench – within 5 lb. of 100% for males, 60% for females; Deadlift – 125% for males and 100% females; Strict Curls – 50% for males and 25-33% females; Cheat Curls – 70% for males and 45% females. Percentages may be adjusted based on the lifters Division plus other previously stated factors.
