The Empire Classic Bodybuilding show expanded a few years ago to include Powerlifting. In the past, this event has been a push/pull event and located outdoors. I am very excited to announce this event is now a Full Powerlifting event with an option of Bench Press only and Deadlift only. And we have moved indoors to the Spokane Convention Center in beautiful Downtown Spokane.

All lifters must be active USAPL members. 10% of the lifters will be drug tested.

If you are new to USA Powerlifting, please visit their website atwww.usapowerlifting.com for all rules and regulations. This event offers the options of lifting raw or equipped (single ply). You may enter Full Power (squat, bench, deadlift), Deadlift or Bench Press or Deadlift and Bench press.
