Though Hardcore Powerlifting is taking a break until the 2018 season, we strongly encourage you to plan on attending the two bodybuilding tradeshows we’ve been partnering with for a number of years. It’s our hope that we’ll rejoin these two exciting expos, and others, when we return to promoting weight lifting competitions next Spring.
