The Wilks coefficients, which were passed by Congress of the International Powerlifting Federation (IPF) in 1996, are used to measure the strength of powerlifters of different bodyweights. They were designed by Robert Wilks. The data used to determine the Wilks coefficients were the totals of all of the first place lifters at the past world championships. There are different Wilks coefficient tables for men and women.
The Wilks point can be calculated by multiplying the lifter's total by the corresponding Wilks coefficient relative to the bodyweight.
