The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    Are knee wraps still considered raw?

    I though knee wraps were still considered raw just from what I've read around the forums. But just learned in my upcoming meet they're not allowed for raw lifters. Differs from federation to federation?

    It differs from federation to federation.

    Off the top of my head...
    USAPL > wrist wraps, knee sleeves
    APF > wrist wraps, no knee wraps
    SPF > wrist wraps, knee wraps
    750/500/690 APF Elite @ 242

    Bench Only - Multi Ply SPF - 600 @ 275 (251)

    Bench Only - Single Ply USAPL - 501 @ 275 (255)

    Bench Only - Single Ply SPF - 550 @ 259 (257)

    IPA = wrist wraps, no knee wraps, no knee sleeves
    APA = wrist wraps, knee wraps (I think this is correct, Scott Yard has done some APA meets raw and I'm pretty sure he used knee wraps)

    I am pretty sure i saw that yard had to compete in the geared division because of the knee wraps.

    kind of funny that knee wraps are raw in some places, my raw squat with no belt or wraps is maybe 500, if i ad those its over 6

    When I lifted IPA in just wraps I had to lift in the equipped division as they only allow belts in there raw division. The APA defines raw as wrist/knee wraps and a belt so thats where I lift now.

    I dont get wrapped up in what some think is this or that. I just dont give a ****! I lift how I want to and let everyone else bicker about it.
