Powerlifting: a new opportunity to stay fit!

On 19 and 20 July the Powerlifting section of the CERN Fitness Club hosted the “Powerlifting & Benchpress seminar of Honoured Coach of Russia*, Askold Surovetsky”.


Powerlifting is a strength sport using three basic lifts (bench press, squat and deadlift) which involve using most of the muscles in the body. The "Honoured Coach of Russia" title is awarded to those who have trained world champions/world-record holders, so this was a rare opportunity to learn from the best. With participants from Hong Kong, India, Hungary, Sweden, Ukraine and Russia, the seminar was a truly international event.
