Why Powerlifting: Powerlifting is about as functional a sport as you can compete in, everything carries over into everyday life, squats and deadlifts are everyday human movements, training to become better at those movements can only improve your overall functionality and quality of life. plus its just a great sport to be apart of, I have never participated in anything else in my life where people are so accepting and willing to jump in and help a total stranger, everyone that I have seen compete just wants to have a good time, lift heavy things and see the people around them have the same opportunity.
