Franco performs a deadlift.

Powerlifting is a strength sport consisting of three events: the squat, the bench press, and the deadlift. Powerlifting meets usually present the exercises in this sequence: squat, then bench press, then the deadlift being the final lift. Competitors are allowed three attempts in each event and the maximum weight from each event is summed for a total. Lifters are divided into classes based on bodyweight. In each class, the lifter with the highest total wins.
