Welcome to the official website of the IPF affiliated Commonwealth Powerlifting Federation.
Our goal is to develop and promote high-standard and enjoyable drug-free powerlifting competition at the Commonwealth International level.
Visit our website for IPF Commonwealth-related powerlifting news and events.
Commonwealth records are gathered from the best lifts from registered member nations of the CPF. The initial records are devised from the lifts achieved at the first Commonwealth Championships in 2005. However, minimum standards were set and these take place of the record where they have not been surpassed by a lifter. Commonwealth records can be set outside of the Commonwealth Championships, but they require 3 Cat referees to have judged the lift and it must be lodged with the CPF Record Keeper, John Myers, within a 14 day period following the lift event.
Commonwealth Bench Press Only Standards have recently been developed with the requirement that they be set higher than the existing Commonwealth Bench Press record in that class in a full competition. The Executive has also determined that to claim a record the competition must be a International Championships and must have WADA testing take place at the event.
At the end of 2010, the IPF changed the weight class categories and the CPF's records were frozen as a result. The records below represent what was achieved between 2005-2010.
Please lodge all record applications, queries and questions to the current Record Keeper, John Myers.
