Misfit Powerlifting Presents Shell Shocked: A Powerlifting meet for mental health

We are very excited to host Shell Shocked: A Powerlifting meet to bring awareness to mental health.

With PTSD awareness on the rise, Misfit Powerlifting in conjunction with the Canadian Powerlifting League has teamed up to host a meet in support for PTSD and traumatic brain injury in service workers, soldiers and veterans.

All proceeds raised from this event will be donated to the department of Canadian Military and Veterans' Clinical Rehabilitation Research at the University of Alberta. 

There will be two platforms running at the same time; a CPL sanctioned platform and an unsanctioned "fun" platform open to anyone from any federation who wants to participate. 

We are also having internationally recognized Powerlifter Brandon Lilly coming to Emcee the event and will be putting on 2 seminars on Sunday November 27th, 2016. The seminar times are:

1. 0800-1400

2. 1500-2100

The seminar is focused on the mechanics of the Bench Press, Deadlift, and Squat. Cost is $135 per person and registration is filling up! To register, please email Sarah McCaffrey at
