A status achieved by having the sum of your maximum lift on bench press, squat, and deadlift equal to or greater than 1000 pounds. This status means you are starting to become "strong" relative to other powerlifters.

The aforementioned is especially true for taller powerlifters who must lift the weight further distances than shorter powerlifters, and who have a mechanical disadvantage due to the fact that the fulcrum is further away from the moment arm in every joint in their body.

For ATHLETES, this refers to a three lift total of Back Squat, Bench Press, Power Clean. The Athletes 1000 pound club differs from the jag/naf/gym rat 1000 pound club, in that, it disregards Deadlift and uses Power Clean. Dead lift is not an athletic lift. Power Clean is an Olympic lift.
Dave: I am in the 1000 pound club.

Greg: How much do you Power Clean?
Dave: What is power clean?
Greg: You are weak and non-athletic.
Dave: You're right, I'm lame for using Deadlift max.
