Default crossfit division in powerlifting

The SPF is offering a crossfit division now at certain meets. its not a class, but a different event all together. Squat, strict press, and deadlift. What you think?

Raw Unity did that as well. Wasn't sure what I thought about it. If it brings folks to powerlifting great. Not sure the opposite won't happen though. Who knows.

I have no issue with 2 sports competing on the same day, but I do not understand the benefit for powerlifting. It's like a gymnastics meet adding a bowling tournament. If it doesn't distract the promoters, have at it I guess.

when do you add in the strict press? before bench? after bench? before bench only flight? Just made an all day event that much longer.

hmmm, also not sure how I feel about it. Doesn't really make sense. They bench press in crossfit, so why the press? Also, crossfit has it's own competitions. This just seems like they are trying to cash in on a fad under the guise of it being good for the sport.

It just clicked, strict press OH, I thought you meant strict bench press...my reading, doh.


Also, how long will it be before they drop the strict press anyway, they had issues with it back in the day, if I remember correctly, because people were bending way back and almost chest pressing the barbell which others considered unfair, so that should be interesting to watch.

Haha, that was my second thought. "Strict press", really? Oh yeah, that worked SO well in the olympics.

The return of the press, NICE!
They should throw out the 'strict' and just do it like they do in strongman; any way you can.

RPS is adding this event in their events also. I guess that make$ $ense from any organization or meet director point of view (independently of organization/federation) and who is running the meet...or migth be just a world phenomenon!!!

I wonder what will happen when they get to this sort of thing, since it's still a strict press as long as no leg drive is utilised. At least with squat, bench and deadlift, a set bar path or depth can be called whereas with the OHP it's going to be almost impossible to suggest some swayback is permitted without giving a quantifiable amount of swayback and if they could, there would still be arguments, eventually.

Call it just like a squat. If your armpits go behind the vertical line from the back of your knees straight up, it's like a squat that doesn't break parallel. No good.

Or failing that, if your johnson actually hits someone in the crowd, no lift.
