The NGB recently voted to implement IPF weight classes at state level meets effective 1/1/15. (These weight classes are already in effect at National level meets.)

53.0kg (this class only applies to sub-junior and junior lifters) 

43.0kg (this class only applies to sub-junior and junior lifters) 

Here is the link to the meeting minutes:

Starting in January, the USAPL SC records will reflect the new weight classes.  Unfortunately, the number of classes are being reduced for both men and women.  Some classes will essentially remain unchanged; however, there are a few classes that will be combined.  For example, the 165 lbs. (75.0kg) and 181 lbs. (82.0kg) classes will be combined and the higher lift will claim the record for the new class of 183 lbs. (83.0kg).
If a lifter can prove that he or she was lighter than the new weight class and would like to claim the lighter record, please submit that claim via email with the documented proof to Jon Mouzon at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .  Please take note that it is up to the lifter to claim the record in question.  We will not be going through the archives of all meets to determine individual body weights.
The upcoming SC State Championship this December in Fort Mill, SC will be using the new weight classes.  Please take note of them above.  As this meet will be held only 2 weeks prior to the January deadline, we want to ensure that State records will be set at the appropriate class.
Feel free to give me a call at 864-844-0083 or send me an email at the above address with any concerns.

2014 SC State Championship – December 13th

The USAPL South Carolina State Championship will take place Saturday December 13th, 2014 – with early equipment check on Friday evening between 7 and 8pm. This year it will be held at the YMCA Fort Mill, SC 29708, just off 77 about 15 miles from Charlotte. The Battle on the Border was held at this venue in 2012, and it is an excellent venue.

There are plenty of hotels and good restaurants close to the venue.

Due to the cost of the venue we are increasing entry fees by $5.

Last year we had an very successful meet with several American records set and at least 30 State records set.

Place this meet on your calendars and lets put Southern Powerlifting on the map again!

The Meet website is, I am in the process of updating the site. I will leave the photos from the 2013 SC State Meet on the site.

Battle on the Border

E-mail Print PDF

Congratulations to all of our lifters who competed at the Battle on the Border this past weekend.  Although we had some incredible lifting from our team as a whole, North Carolina was able to take back the title.  Time to regroup and prepare to bring it back home in 2015.

Several State and American records were broken by South Carolinians.  The records have been updated and can be viewed.  Record certificates can be purchased for $5 (to cover shipping and materials).  Just let me know at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

If anyone has any pictures from the Battle on the Border, please send them to me at the above email address so I can add them to the Gallery on the Battle website.

We have several meets coming up in the Carolinas during the next several months.  The NC State Championship with be this June, the Fall Festival of Power will be held in Raleigh this November and the SC State Championship will be in December.  Several lifters were left out of the Battle this year due to the increasing popularity and attendence of our meets.  Be sure to get entries in as soon as possible so you aren't left behind.

Scott Case is our newest SC State judge.  Congratulations!  If anyone would like to sit and become a judge for USAPL SC, let me know.  We are always looking for a few good lifters to step up and volunteer.
