Powerlifting, which is different from weightlifting, is a strength sport that consists of three attempts at maximal weight on three lifts: squat, bench press, and deadlift. In powerlifting the focus is to lift as much weight as possible in a single plane of motion. In weightlifting, on the other hand, there are two movements: snatch, and clean and jerk.
