Im thinking about signing up for some PL meets soon and i was wondering what equipement can be used for RAW powerlifting? From my guesses knee wraps and belt only?

I believe belt only is raw. Knee wraps and wrist wraps are considered unassisted. They may still allow them, but that is not truly raw. Each fed has a different definition. Which federation will you be lifting with?

It depends on the rules of that federation.

N.A.S.A. rules:
Unequipped Powerlifting & Unequipped BP: Wrist Wraps, Knee Wraps and Belt allowed. No Supportive Suits and/or BP Shirts allowed.

Power Sports: No Supportive Equipment is allowed except a 4" wide lifting belt.

The 100% Raw fed is Belt only...

I think MOST feds consider raw either using no equipment at all or just a belt.

I thought chalk and that was it. If you're RAW that means no supportive equipment. A belt is supportive. Knee wraps are supportive.

When you order steak rare it is not always the same. Rules change and opinions too.

I would call "raw" chalk only but then thats just me. Think wearing shoes makes it not "raw"?

You are entitled to think that but I have never heard of any fed that didnt at least allow a belt.
