The World Powerlifting Congress Consists of more than 30 countries, whose individual lifting seasons culminate in the annual World Championships each November. This event, which is held in the United States in even-numbered years and internationally in odd-numbered years, will bring nearly 800 of the world's best powerlifters (male and female, in teen, junior, open, and masters age group) to West Palm Beach's Box Expo Center from November 10-16, 2014.
Powerlifting consists of three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. Lifters compete for the highest totals in full competition, while single-lift competitors vie for the heaviest single lift. Because of the WPC regulations, the majority of the competitors will come from overseas.
