The legendary WIlks Formula, the benchmark for determining relative Powerlifting performance, has been updated for 2020 onwards. New data has allowed for a rebalancing of coefficients, with Men and Womens performances better aligned and the extreme bodyweght classes brought into better balance with the middle bodyweight classes. Wilks Formula 2 will stand the test of time but will always be subject to reanalysis as the quantum of lifting results builds over time.
