    I guess it would as long as you wait for the press command, i dont think its to low to be considered belly benching, but you never know

    I dont know jack about the IPF, but I will say that the pause looked a little too short to me based on some of the other IPF benches I have seen. There are a few IPF Benchers here that can comment better than I, such as JT Hall.

    I have competed in 4 different meets judged by IPF judges. I noticed that you lowered the bar below the Inzer Advance Design Logo. When I competed at the August 31, 2008 usapl bp nationals, a lifter got red lighted for this! The judges said the lifter place the bar too low.

    I would suggest making sure the bar is lowered across the logo.

    Here is a video of me competing at the August 31, 2008 usapl bp nationals. You'll see that I lowered the bar across the logo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=25JMGSB7Xbs

    You will get a start command and the judges are looking to make sure your elbows are locked out. Several lifters didn't get the start command or had to re-rack the bar because their elbows were not locked out @ the 8-31-08 usapl bp nationals. So, just make sure you practice holding that bar with elbows locked out.

    Good luck with your meet and great shirt that you are wearing

    one more thing

    I never lifted in the IPF, but I would bet money the lifter can not have anyone touch them once on the platform. your lift off guy adjusts your belt for you. everything else looked good.

    I know the logos are not all put on the same exact place on the bench shirts. they may be close, but i've seen some that are definitely in different places, some higher some lower.
