Our Teams

Iron Crab Barbell Powerlifting Team

Our powerlifting team competes in USA Powerlifting, the largest drug-free powerlifting association in the United States.  Currently, all of our lifters compete only raw, which means they can wear a belt, knee sleeves, and wrist wraps when performing the judged competition lifts of squat, bench, and deadlift.  Our club registration number is: MD-16-18.  Powerlifting meets are conducted in kilograms (kg), and one kilogram is 2.2lbs.  

Our powerlifting team roster only consists of people who train at our physical gym or have done remote training with us for a minimum of 6 months.  Our coaches travel & handle these lifters at all meets.
