A lot of people make gear for powerlifting, but no one knows the gear like House of Pain. We help lifters with their gear, in person, at House of Pain every weekday - then go to the meets on the weekend. We have been competing since 1983, and we currently attend more Powerlifting meets than any other company in the world. House of Pain sponsors and attends well over 125 meets every year; WE KNOW THE GEAR! If you want to talk to a couch-potato about gear, call any of the other companies. If you want to talk to actual lifters, call HOUSE OF PAIN!
