Title: Federations
Post by: Andy Griffin on September 19, 2011, 01:23:32 AM
Hello all.

In a different thread, someone advised me that there are several different powerlifting federations. 

Which one, in your opinion, is the best or most respected?  For a newbie like me, which one would be best to consider joining? 

Thanks in advance.

oohhh, this question would set off a shit storm if asked on different boards.

My advice = find out which fed have the most meets in your area, then join that one.

also consider tested vs. non-tested feds if that matters to you.

Are you in the U.S. ?

"My advice = find out which fed have the most meets in your area, then join that one."

That's good advice, Personally , I'd go with a IPF member organization, or IPA or USPF.

SPF is the most controversial right now ;).

Thank you both for your replies.  They help me narrow things down.

I agree with which feds have the most meets in your area. I like 100% RAW and the APFPF myself.

This might help you

Thanks.  I had looked on that website before but hadn't found this particular page.  Very informative.

This board is a far cry from the G&O ...  even with my newbie-style questions, not one person has called me "tiny tit" yet  ;D

the a.p.f. seems to cover all bases,they have the aapf which is drug tested,and the a.p.f. which is not,and they have unlimited raw and single ply div. and a world body,the w.p.c. not every fed has a world body
