Classic and Equipped Powerlifting: As defined by the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF), classic lifting is the use of wrist wraps, knee sleeves, and belt only. Athletes must also wear a non-supportive singlet, a form fitting t-shirt, and brief or thong-style undergarments (no boxers or compression shorts). If athletes are competing equipped, by using supportive equipment, all brands and material must be approved by the IPF. Each year the rules governing approved equipment can change according to IPF executive rulings. Therefore, it is the athlete’s responsibility to understand these changes.
