Yep those are the old uspf totals . I'm not the end all of decision makers , but if you're within 100 pounds of them at 181 and up raw, no wraps call yourself damn good. You get no lower totals for being drug tested. I don't care.
If you're under 181, take 65 lbs off for raw. This is just me recalling carryover from gear in 1982-1988. It's my estimate.
If you're using the new multiply gear you're not elite by just hitting these totals . I'll give you elite if you're hitting ten times bodyweight.
Back in the day Rickey dale Crain did it first in the seventies for a point of referenced
. He was a world champ in the unified powerlifting world .
I knew some drug free tested guys hit elite at these totals back in the day and they weren't getting 100 lbs on their total from gear. I love the gear , but just think we need some realism when we start talking elite snd such .
