I keep seeing you guys say you are going to be lifting "raw". What the heck does raw mean for lifting?

Sweat socks give you way to much calve support so technically it is not raw. If you wanna go 110% raw you need to be wearing only "no see ankle socks" ,not full blown sweat socks. And the ones that sit way above the calve that have the Blue Red and Green stripes around the top are totally forbidden in every fed!!!

Hey Avatar,

Raw in powerlifting means like Keith said no equipment. No bench shirt, no Squat suit, no Dead lift suits. Some will allow only wraps and a belt and some 100% raw feds wont even allow that.

Wolfy!!!!!
