just wanted to see how strict judges are outside of California. Over here, me and my buddies get called on for little stuff such as heel slightly lifting off the ground during a press, index finger not touching the ring, foot sliding away during a press due to slippery surface, and when you make the annoucement that the lifter is going to attempt the state/american record, the judges get in super strict mode. We record every competition lift and noticed that the side judges focus more on body positioning. How is it on the east coast? southside? world's show? I'm more interested in bench pressing judgments. But please do include your squat and deadlift exp.
it all depends on the federation, man

Depends on the federation and the judge(s) and (sometimes) who the competitor is.

A child does not learn to squat from the top down. In other words, he does not suddenly make a conscious decision one day to squat. Actually, he is squatting one day and make the conscious decision to stand. Squatting precedes standing in the developmental sequence. This is the way a child's brain learns to use the body as the child develops movement patterns. Therefore, a child is probably crawling, rocks back into a squatting position with the back completely relaxed and the hips completely flexed, and stands when he has enough hip strength. This approach makes a lot of sense and can be applied to relearning the deep squat movement if it is lost. -Gray Cook
