is there a super raw classification, hence the all caps? or does it simulate someone yelling RAWWWWWWWZ0RZ!!111!!!!?

lol, not sure why it needs to be capitalized. I've never seen someone write "I hit a 715 SHIRTED bench."

:ninja:

The only more raw you can get is nude...and no one wants to see a grown ass man squat in the buff.

I agree JSully. It's dumb to capitalize RAW like that.

Acronyms always have every letter capitalized.

Then they should put a period between each letter.

I still think it's ridiculous though

Classic, RAW, unequipped, raw, noone can agree on what it should be called.

Just did a belt-only meet since it was local and someone saw wrist wraps in my bag and started going on about "gear". I proceeded to watch a bunch of benches done with a thick power bar where everyone was shaking violently on their chest waiting for a press call.

Still think the future of the sport (especially with the cost of gear inflating lately) will lie in multi-ply and "unequipped" or whatever the hell it'll be called. Single ply seems to be a dying game, especially considering the cost and training time is comparable to multi-ply gear.

Good responses! This one gave me a much needed 'CHUCKLE' for the day!

I wonder if Spero T. was the one who started the upper case trend. He's a devout Christian, and when he's run raw feds (previously 100% RAW and now RAW United), it doubled as an acronym for Redeemed Among Men.

raw is for people who don't like lifting in gear
RAW is for people who are proud about that fact
