AWPC – WPC Rules Update – 17th of July 2018.

Written by Adam Riman on . Posted in Rule Book Updates

Hi everyone,

The WPC has issued a rule update stating the following can no longer be used in competition:

  • Elbow Sleeves on Squats, even under classic raw category are no longer allowed. (Equipped is still OK)
  • Knee Sleeves on Bench, even under classic raw category are no longer allowed. (Equipped is still OK)
  • Knee Sleeves on Deadlift, even under classic raw category are no longer allowed. (Equipped is still OK)

However, it is not all doom and gloom. Wayne Pullum has said that the Mark Bell (Slingshot) X Knee sleeves are approved for use under the classic raw category.

Also, whilst I am here and with an upcoming international world championship within the UK coming up I think it is a good time to remind people that if you are attempting to claim a world record you must make sure the paperwork is filled in or if the paperwork isn’t present at the competition to confirm with the officials that they are not required on that day due to different agreements between the hosting nations president and WPC president.

Many thanks,
Adam Riman
