Northern Powerlifting


Powerlifting is one of the fastest growing sports in the State of Michigan. Northern has had an official Varsity powerlifting club since 2009. Athletes compete in classes that are based on gender, weight, and age. (Yes, girls can powerlift too!) The three lifts completed at the meets are Squat, Bench Press and Deadlift. Each competitor will receive 3 attempts at each of these exercises. Our Northern Powerlifting goal is to have our athletes meet personal goals and break records they set for themselves. We have already developed a reputation for having great sportsmanship and camaraderie amongst powerlifting teams across the State.
