This year’s CPU Nationals is the largest CPU contest to date with over 300 lifters representing all 10 Canadian provinces. With such a large contest, there will be no shortage of entertaining weight class matchups that will put some of Canada’s best lifters head to head; some for the first time. Looking ahead to next weeks contest I will outline the unequipped division battles I am most looking forward to watching!

Since last year, we have seen women’s powerlifting increase in popularity in the country. The raising of Classic division in the CPU/IPF with the first World level competition in 2012 have waked up some women’s mind. In fact, women can be headstrong and powerfull and they have the advantage of flexibility and short range of motion for the most of them. If you are looking to challenge yourself, it could be the beginning of an endless search !
