Federations that Allow Heels Up Benching?


Which federations allow you to bench with your heels off of the ground (preferably a raw fed.)?


You can do it in the APF, SPF, and probably the UPA and IPA. I know the first two have raw divisions.


According to powerliftingwatch.com UPA & IPA have raw divisions. I also remember seeing youtube videos of Joe Mazza benching in IPA with his heels off the ground, not sure about UPA and the heels though.
