The sport of Powerlifting consists of three (3) lifts : The Squat, the Bench Press, and the Deadlift along with a required TOTAL. "What are the real Powerlifting Records?" A new Powerlifting organization will often advertise a newly established set of lifting records without credence to existing marks.

This book covers it all for beginning and advanced powerlifters, bodybuilders, casual weightlifters, and those interested in the correct form of the big three lifts. It contains most of what Frantz learned in over 50 years of powerlifting. The book stresses the basics because so many lifters forget them in clutch situations. People are not machines. The only way in which a human can master a set of instructions is to do them and do them and do them. This book covers everything from the proper method of performing the big three (squat, bench press, and deadlift), the Frantz routine, supplements, diet, rest and relaxation, spotting, selecting training partners, injuries and rehabilitation, women in powerlifting, and common physical and psychological complaints. It also covers powerlifting myths, common official competition rules, and includes interviews with some of the sport's greats. If you have spent decades in the sport or are just considering a start for improving yourself in your sport or general health, this book is for you.
