Alright guys,Im thinking about entering my first Raw competition in a few months and I had some questions.

How far up on the chest am I touching during bench?
Belts allowed for Squat/Dead?
Knee Wraps?
Same as usual,3 lifts/3 attempts?

It says on the entry form that you need to wear a single in the Raw division?Why?

The singlet is just the uniform of powerlifting. I think it helps with judging. They can more easily see if your butt leaves the bench when benching, and if you are going deep enough in the squat. If you wore a big baggy shirt and shorts it would be harder to see those things.
