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.
