    I wouldn't worry at all about wrist wraps unless I was some elite level bencher to be honest. I can't tell any difference in performance with substantial wraps like the ones you are talking about....

    If you think Turnquist's competition squats look high, you should see his training squats. Even worse. And he always posts them as "#2 All-Time Ranked Squat @ 198" and then it's just some mile high...

    That's a fine goal to have; plenty of people at PL meets don't pull 400, though there are also people pulling more than double that.

    It won't mess up your body.

    Just watched the video. I assumed you meant the IPF was being too lax, since I think the biggest arches I've ever seen were in the IPF by female lifters. But yeah, that was certainly a bad call from...

    Almost impossible to judge with a 2d picture as you can't really get an impression of whether the butt is actually touching the bench or if the legs are just pinned against the bench giving the...

    That just makes them bad lifters. Before every meet I do, I reread the entire rulebook. I highlight relevant portions, and take it to the meet. I don't expect everyone to be quite that nerdy, but it...

    x2. Remember to squat the weight up with your legs on deadlift!

    Also, bench the weight up with your legs on squat.
    Deadlift the weight up with your arms on bench press.

    Also, here you imply that since the USAPL/IPF has a detailed process for approving refs, that this negates the need to clarify every word in the rulebook. This may be true from the refs' point of...

    The problem is, however, that most rulebooks DO seem to offer a definition of heaving, but do not explicitly outline it as such. As with the USPA example above, heaving is mentioned, and then a...

    Yeah, leaving both "heaving" and then adding "or sinking the bar..." implies that heaving is something different than sinking the bar after the press signal. So they either need to define heaving,...

    Yes, when read more closely most rulebooks (all that I've read) do not prohibit the Dan Green style technique. Dan once posted something on a video like, "Everyone reads article after article about...

    Haha, if you Google Image Search any medical condition you'll see the freakiest of the freaky.

    But generally it's something much milder. I had a recurring one on my wrist for years and it really...

    One of the main differences is how people train. Now people are training for strongman ON strongman equipment. It's often even done using the exact same equipment that is used at the competitions....

    Great video! Yes, I've also noticed that tight wraps help me focus before a squat. Who needs to sniff ammonia if you've got the equivalent of two rottweilers biting your legs?

    923 lb trap bar deadlift, anyone? (at 2:20)

    Actually, if what you guys are implying regarding Norris is true, shouldn't you be happy he isn't doing IPF Worlds and taking all the World Records from the squeaky clean lifters there? Wouldn't that...

    I think people can squat a lot high bar, but would say in most cases low bar will give a bigger squat. I used to always use Eric L. as proof that high bar squat would yield just as big numbers as low...
