Not locked out deadlifts

High squats


What the f**k are they playing at??

Do they not know about youtube and how everyone worldwide can see this nonsense?

They've gone from cheating with half reps and soft handouts and soft lockouts in equipment to doing it equipped now...

Where there's a way to cheat, an American powerlifter will find it...

I can't really disagree with you there. There are very strong Americans out there, but the quality of their lifting is often s**t. It's all backslaps YOO ...ESS....EEY over there.

Are you referring to George Leeman's deadlift? If so I thought it wasn't perfect but deserves credit

Having said that I am completely unsure why this has happened

America is one of my favourite countries to visit

Why don't they create a certified laser measuring robot to judge distance. Why argue. Come up with a solution. That's why I do strongman. I may do 1 powerlifting meet in my lifetime because the sport is awesome. Watching it and the uncertainty makes it better to watch.

By American Powerlifting you mean Eric Spoto, Mike Tuscherer, Jesse Norris, Jason Nguyen, Layne Norto, etc.
Or could you just be generalising?

Also, I find that the best way to make sure that any post doesn't automatically come across as biased and demeaning to an entire nation is to swap the subject of the query, in this case America/Americans, with the phrase 'black people':

"Black People Powerlifting

High squats


What the f**k are they playing at??

Do they not know about youtube and how everyone worldwide can see this nonsense?

They've gone from cheating with half reps and soft handouts and soft lockouts in equipment to doing it equipped now...

Where there's a way to cheat, a black powerlifter will find it..."

Now it really does comes across as racist and all encompassing. A bit like your first post.
