Totals That Qualify as Elite

I can’t find a place that lists the totals for each class that would qualify as “Elite.” Can someone help me out? I looked on the IPA and IPF websites, but no luck…

Here’s the USPF’s (single ply, non-tested)



Heres the IPF’s off the CPU website (Canadian Affiliate) all the IPF affiliates run off the same numbers.


As an example for a 90kg male lifter an Elite total is 785kg or above which is equal to or exceeding 500 wilkes points.

It might be 290-200-295 kg or 638-440-650 lbs

Here are the “raw” standards, if you’re interested.

Edit: I spose I’ll actually add the link:
