I have difficulty in accepting the arrogance that the IPF has regarding their rule punishing lifters who compete "OUTSIDE" of their administrative boundaries. Why should it be important what someone does in another Fed..?? This seems to be overstepping their authority.It also smacks of fascism...perform and behave as we say wherever you are or we'll get you!

For the record, the first set of AAU rules for the bench press were published in 1964 and outlawed "bridging in any form" - ie arching.
However, as with resistance or endurance training, you also need some form of progression when it comes to soft tissue work. You wouldn't recommend that someone continue to perform three sets of ten for every exercise, or do nothing but walk on the treadmill for a straight year to make progress with their physique, right? So why would foam rolling be any different? While it's a fantastic modality, I find that trainees come to a point where they need something a bit more "focused."
Robert Keller announces that superheavyweight Randall Harris will be replacing Brian Siders on the World team which will be representing the U.S. at the IPF World Championship in Stavenger, Norway. Todd Straub moves up to first alternate, followed by Tony Harris, Eric Kupperstein, Maliek Derstine, and Darren Matsumoto.
I don't think 'retarded' is quite adequate. I can't think of a word to describe the level of ridiculousness and pettiness of the IPF. Brian should learn how to use multiply gear and then come dominate the WPO!!
This is an issue that just has to be addressed after seeing what goes on in the warmup room, specifically down at provincials this weekend. WAY TOO MUCH!!!
Ok I started powerlifting and I'm doing a wide squat because every powerlifter I see does wide! so I did it and I think I'm doing pretty good but sometimes when I go up my knees go inwards. Is there anyway to fix this? its hard to hold them out Is it too much weight? my form? should I wrap my knees?
Yes, I definitely catch a lot of heat over my squats. I really cannot say why people feel they have to hate instead of support, simply because my brain does not work that way! LOL! I love this sport, and I appreciate every lifter, no matter what federation, what rules, how many ply's, etc. What boggles my mind is when people personally attack the lifter rather than the lift itself, or when they judge the person's character based off of a lift that was passed that they feel was a bad lift. That's when it goes too far.
