ABOUT THE APO

OUR STORY

Why The APO?

The American Powerlifting Organization was born out of the need to fill a clear void in the Powerlifting landscape.  A functional, transparent organization with the highest quality of judging consistency and meet competitions, that truly is “for the lifter”, not in existence for the continuance of the federation.

AMERICAN POWERLIFTING ORGANIZATION

VISION

The American Powerlifting Organization strives to be the pre-eminent powerlifting organization in the world, serving all forms of powerlifting including but not limited to: raw, wraps, single ply, multiply, and Special Olympics, with both tested and non-tested divisions.

The mission of the APO is to passionately serve the powerlifting community by running professionally executed State, and National meets with background checked chairs, directors and judges. We uphold the highest standards of consistent judging, precise spotting/loading, and top-tier equipment, all crafted for the lifter’s optimal experience. Our goal is to create an environment where lifters of all skill levels can confidently push their lifts to the max, ensuring a commitment to safety at every step.
