What is 100% Raw

​100% RAW Powerlifting Federation was established in 1999 with the goal  to showcase Powerlifters safely competing with no special “support” equipment and to become the premier DRUG FREE Powerlifting Federation in the world. We have since rapidly grown to over 8,000 lifters while increasing our membership worldwide providing the best platform to prove that RAW MEANS TRUE POWER!  

We realize that all federations, equipped or RAW, are only as good as their members. We pledge to train, lead and support our members, while always maintaining the highest standards of honesty, integrity and loyalty to our athletes, fans and our sport.  


All 100% Raw Powerlifting meets are urinalysis drug-tested, which is a true indication that we are sincere in our commitment to make sure our athletes and organization is 100% drug-free. For this reason, our events attract hundreds of competitors and thousands of spectators season after season, year after year. 100% Raw Powerlifting events are growing into some of the most successful and popular drug-free sporting events outside of the Olympics.  We invite and encourage you to join our quest for Powerlifting excellence, and always welcome your comments, suggestions and words of encouragement.
