## What is a good IPF score?

Additionally, best lifters in open National, International and World championships are most likely to be in the highest performance range (95-100%) where IPF points at 97.3% are much better than Wilks points at 59.7%.

## What are weightlifting coefficients?

The Wilks coefficient or Wilks formula is a mathematical coefficient that can be used to measure the relative strengths of powerlifters despite the different weight classes of the lifters.

**What is glossbrenner formula?**

The formula is: (LT) times (GBC) = (PN) LT – Lifter’s Total. GBC – Glossbrenner Bodyweight Coefficient * PN – Product Number. The Product Numbers of the lifters are compared and the lifter with the highest Product Number is ‘Best Lifter.

### What is Sinclair score?

Sinclair Scores The score is obtained by multiplying the lifter’s Snatch and Clean & Jerk total by a coefficent which is based on body weight. The total lifts of the gold medal winners in every weight class at each Olympic Games are used to determine the formula that will be used for calculating Sinclair coefficients.

### What are IPF GL points?

Points are referred to as IPF GL to distinguish them from the IPF points of the 2019 formula. IPF GL points are normalised in an attempt to represent performance as a percentage of that of an elite lifter with the same body weight.

**Who is the world’s strongest powerlifter?**

Edward “Ed” Ignatius Coan (born July 24, 1963) is an American powerlifter. He is widely regarded throughout the powerlifting world as the greatest powerlifter of all time. Coan has set over 71 world records in powerlifting.

The Wilks Formula is used widely, including by World Powerlifting and Powerlifting Australia.

#### How is Sinclair coefficient calculated?

Thus the total lifted weight needes to be standardized to be able to compare various lifters. This is where the sinclair coefficient comes in handy. The sinclair coefficient is recalculated in the end of each olympic year….The Sinclair Coefficient.

A | a calculated coefficient |
---|---|

x | the lifters bodyweight |

**How is Wilks calculated?**

To find a lifter’s ‘Wilks Points’, multiply the coefficient found in the previous step by the individual Lift (Squat, Bench or Deadlift) or Total. The lifter with the highest resulting figure is the Best Lifter.

## What is a good Wilks score?

500 | Elite |

550 | Super-elite |

600 | GOAT material |

## What is a Sinclair total in weightlifting?

The number that is gotten by using the Sinclair Formula is what the lifter would total, theoretically, if they were at the highest weight class, assuming the same level of ability. This is called the Sinclair Total. This allows us to compare multiple people in different weight classes on the same playing field.
