Where is it illegal to have your butt off the bench while unracking?

Um... That would be in every powerlifting federation known to man. It is simply easier to get a good arch this way in IPF lifting. Also, it helps since there is no "soft" hand-off and a start command. PLWatch needs to update this with the correct info. 330kg is a 727 lb bench press!
