The sport of powerlifting is testing an athlete’s one-rep max, out of nine total attempts, for three different lifts: the squat, bench press, and deadlift (in that order). Lifters train for each lift and its many variations, throughout different training cycles: a volume phase, strength phase, and peaking phase (when the lifter is approaching a competition).

The Rock-A-Chaws compete in the 4A MHSAA Powerlifting Championships held in April at the Mississippi Coliseum. We train to prepare for this meet.
