  • After watching the videos and getting an understanding between the both I think weightlifting involves much more strength and energy than powerlifting. Yeah it’s difficult to deadlift a barbell with high amount of lbs/kg attached to the side but with weightlifting your doing a clean and jerk and lifting that bar straight over your head. But that’s my opinion maybe you’ll disagree.

    • Well, both include extreme levels of strength. But yes, WL is tougher from a movement perspective. That keeps the loads down, compared to a deadlift, etc.
