According to Gawain, “The pure lifts of powerlifting, meaning the squat, bench press and deadlifts, are the basics of every sport. For every sport, there is an element of strength, whether it be power, whether it be endurance, or some level of conditioning. Those 3 lifts, they all aid every sport that is played, whether it be basketball, boxing, athletics, football, etc.”
