Power Lifting

The Power Lifting Program at Legendary Athletics focuses on strengthening your ability to lift the maximum amount of weight on three types of canonical lifts:  squat, bench press, and deadlift.

  • Squat:  A lower body exercise that focuses on strengthening the thigh, hips, quads, and buttocks muscles, as well as the bones and ligaments in the lower portion of the body
  • Bench Press:  An upper body exercise that focuses  on strengthening the pectoralis major and other chest muscles
  • Deadlift:  Lifting weight without momentum to strengthen grip, lower back muscles, the buttocks, and leg muscles


Power lifting has evolved from strength training methods that the Greeks and Romans once practiced. The modern version that we know today began in the United States in the 1950s, when a number of body builders set records for various “odd lifts.” Today, power lifting is used to strengthen and train the muscles of the body to become stronger and more toned.


Our experienced, certified trainers will show you proper lifting technique and help you build muscle mass.
