christophers keep deleting my post in anotehr thread but let me tell the truth and elave this thread for debate. my statment is "If its not IPF deep its only a half squat competition" all feds like to bloat up numbers so they can show off their top heavyweights via poor judging on the squat and allowance of ridiculous equipment. take for example the IPA, how allowed mike millers squat of 1200lb to go by, when it is a good 6" far from parallel. o yea, hmm doesnt gene rylchek compete in the IPA? these powerlifters defend these bloat feds because they know if they were fair game in such organizations as IPF they would not be on the top anymore, but a regular average fat strong guy.
