The Western Canadian Powerlifting and Bench Press Championships will take place at Evolve Strength North in Edmonton. Edmonton has not hosted a Western Canadian Championship for over 5 years and we are excited to bring it back. Evolve is a massive facility which will allow our athletes the most comprehensive warm-up room and spacious competition area including over 8 IPF approved racks 20+ competition bars and thousands of kilos.
Competing at a CPU Regional event is a requirement for those who have not yet stepped on the National stage. This event requires a Regional Total Standard to compete, which can be found here: http://powerlifting.ca/qual_totals.html
All other requirements to compete, if any, should be clarified by your Provincial powerlifting body - SPA, BCPA, APU, MPA.
The championship will crown who the strongest men and women are in Western Canada. Last year, the event had over 180 athletes competing. This year, we can expect even more!

This year at the Western Championships LVD Media will be covering the event. They most recently covered the CPU National Championship and provide both video and photography for lifters. They have photo only, video only, and combined packages available for Westerns. These packages will need to be ordered in advance.
Click the link below to sign up or for more information!
Competition “Technique Assessment” Services to all lifters. Dr. Bryanton’s lifting assessments are based on nearly a decade of her research, training, and coaching experience. Each assessment package will give you a bio-mechanical breakdown of your lifting technique and identify your “limiting muscle groups” (i.e. weaknesses). Using specialized video analysis software, you will receive written, verbal, and visual feedback on your lifting technique using all of your attempts. Most importantly, each assessment package includes a thorough video voice over file (30-45 minutes in length) that will:
1) teach to you the basic bio-mechanical principles of the squat, bench, and deadlift
2) explain to you why you move the way you do
3) identify your strengths and potential weaknesses that may be limiting your strength performance and what you get out of your training programming, and
4) how to address this effectively in your training using an evidence-based approach to strength training.
For powerlifting athletes competing at Westerns, KAC will be providing an early bird special rate of $125 for the full 3-lift competition assessment package, and $50 for bench only services. Athletes can take advantage of this reduced pricing if they register by September 6th. After this time, rates will increase to $150 (3-lift) and $60 (bench only).
