Edit: I'm of the opinion that classifications such as Elite should be extremely hard to attain. Why lower the overall total? Shouldn't it's being to attain be the whole point?
Well all those reasons have nothing to actually do with a drug-tested
elite powerlifting competition total
@242lbs weight class. Remember we are talking raw here. Elite should be hard to obtain, about the 1% category, factoring the aspects of RAW. 242LBS. DRUG TESTED. IN A SANCTIONED COMPETITION.
