I noticed on powerlifting watch that they put this disclaimer in for the raw the rankings
NOTE(Raw Category): AAU ADAU APF IPA MSA PAP PRPA RAW RAWUnited USAPL USPA- Do not allow kneewraps.
there are more feds that have raw catagories that do not allow knee wraps than there are feds that do, so should knee wraps be considered raw?
personally i would say no. I have used knee wraps in training and in single ply/multiply but never raw. but i can understand the argument.
when I see rob wilkerson squat over 900 without a suit I am impressed regadless of what is around his knees
but when I see someone else ranked ahead of me by 10-20 lbs i sometimes think that its due to the wraps, and yes it does me motivation to say i can beat them without wraps. but......
what do you guys think?
