I am an amateur powerlifter who is interested in the physics of this sport.
I would like to calculate the amount of muscular force that would be needed
to lift a 600 lb barbell from total inertia to a upright position with the
bar resting against the upper thighs. I greatly appreciate any input on
this topic. Regards, Ron
