Answer on your second question: In my own opinion raw PL is no gear at all no belt no straps. But in other federation they allowed to use belt or knee sleeves during competition.

That is why you need to check the federation to see what is allowed. There are none that I am aware of that allow straps.

Hey guys I'm new here - still have to post an intro. I'll get around to that eventually. I have a question about regular vs sumo deadlifts. I've been trying to look up different federations rules and can't find anything on the topic. I prefer sumo's - they just feel more natural for me but I want to train my lifts the same way I would someday perform them in comp. Just can't figure out if sumo's are allowed. I figure it's probably faster to ask here than it is to continue scouring rule books.

I am 99.9 percent sure that you can use sumo in any federation.

These guys all gave you good advice. They are allowed in every federation I have ever heard of. Good luck on your journey. Hope to see you carry a training log so we can see your progress.

Here's another noob question for you seasoned guys in here. Knee wraps; what is the purpose? Do they give you an advantage?

Question...within the various weight classes what would be a reasonable minimum total if one was interested in doing a meet and not looking like an ass...now I know the easy answer is don't worry just go out and have fun and learn but I think SOME sort of a minimum to work towards before doing a meet would give me (and others) confidence that I could go out and enjoy the meet without posting embarrassingly low numbers.

Thanks

I agree.

But in saying that, all I am agreeing with is that it's a state of mind kinda thing. IF you believe that to be so, it is so. If you don't, it isn't.

I happen to concur, but a lot of guys on here (some of them powerlifters, even!) will tell you that it doesn't matter at all - just do it. And IF someone is inclined to agree with that, it becomes true - it doesn't matter at all.

hth.


(edit: If I ever compete, I won't bother until I'm confident of totalling at least 1200+. That's just me though.)
