Adapted Powerlifting

Non-Traditional Powerlifting

Military Adapted Powerlifting

Inspired by Traditional Powerlifting, Military Adapted Powerlifting requires athletes to compete in the bench press discipline. Rules from traditional powerlifting are modified to consider the unique disabilities of military athletes.

One-Armed Bench Press

The One-Armed Bench Press is a new discipline in adapted sports. The athlete is only allowed to use one arm (with or without an assistive device) to perform a dumbbell bench press.
