ABOUT METAL MILITIA
METAL MILITIA is a world-wide brotherhood of powerlifters that believe in and share a similar METAL MILITIA attitude, training style and support for each other. METAL MILITIA is not formally affiliated with any powerlifting organization and as a group and as individuals we are free to lift in any powerlifting federation and in any style of lifting equipped or raw.
We simply want to train together with lifters who are driven to train hard, heavy and serious using METAL MILITIA training styles and programs, integrity, attitude and equipment. We train to compete and prove ourselves on the platform.
METAL MILITIA was founded by Bill Crawford with the purpose of bringing together powerlifters who "were cool with each other" in a time when lifters from different federations were criticizing and putting each other down. Today, METAL MILITIA has spread across the world with chapters in the US, South America, Australia and all across Europe. In fact, most of the top ranked powerlifters in the world have learned from Metal Militia techniques originally taught by Bill Crawford. In Canada we have Metal Militia training compounds in many cities including Kitchener, Toronto, Cornwall, Montreal, Sherbrooke and Amherst, Nova Scotia.

METAL MILITIA EQUIPMENT is made one piece at a time by Bill Crawford. METAL MLITIA MONOLIFTS AND BENCHES are the thickest, strongest and heaviest pieces of powerlifting equipment made. Every piece of equipment is overdesigned and is tested for strength and safety. MILITIA LIFTS are assembled and tested with over 7,000 lbs then are taken apart and painted and shipped.
M3 POWERLIFTING GEAR
METAL MILITIA MONTREAL produces its own brand of competition powerlifting gear called M3. Made to measure of very strong thin polyester material, the M3 brand is unlike any other powerlifting gear available. It was meticulously designed and is professionally sewn to provide safety and relative comfort while providing the competition lifter with the most carry-over possible.
METAL MILITIA T-SHIRTS, HOODIES
When you put on a METAL MILITIA t-shirt or hoodie, you get seriously strong. You feel the strength in numbers behind you and you can't help but lift more weight.

METAL MILITIA TRAINING focuses on developing technique while building strength through slow progressive overload.
80% of METAL MILITIA TRAINING is doing the lifts as you would in competition with only 20% spend with bands, boxes and other accessories.
The goal of METAL MILITIA TRAINING is to train efficiently, finding the most direct route from training to lifting heavier weights. Each exercise is evaluated on how directly it will transfer to making gains on the main lifts.
