Hello! My name is Avi Silverberg and I’m the owner of PowerliftingTechnique.com.

I’ve dedicated myself to the world of powerlifting for the past 15 years.  I started this website because I was frustrated with the quality of content that existed on the internet around powerlifting technique.  

The goal of this website is to provide the World’s most helpful content when it comes to powerlifting technique.   Our team is compromised of top athletes and coaches in powerlifting who are experts in what they do. If you have a specific question that we haven’t answered in one of our articles, please contact us and we’ll either answer you directly or write an article addressing it.  

A bit about my background…

My ‘claim to fame’ was always my bench press, with the highest achievement being competing at the World Bench Press Championships on three occasions, and winning a bronze medal in 2010.

As a coach, I’ve been the Head Coach for Team Canada Powerlifting through 8 World Championships, coaching over 3000 attempts in international competition, and leading Team Canada from consistently placing 30th in the World to top 3. Through that time, I’ve coached athletes to achieving National titles and World Records.

I graduated with a Master of Science degree in Kinesiology, with a specific research focus in sport science and coaching.   Through PowerliftingTechnique.com I hope to share with you everything I’ve learned in powerlifting.


Our team of writers include some of the World’s top minds in strength training and powerlifting.  We’re made up of World Champion powerlifters, National team coaches, therapists and scientists.  Together, we bring a wide range of experience to our site through the content we develop.
