Hey guys, I am doing my first ever meet in the USPA in a few month. I was reading through the rule book and I was a little confused at the bench grip width specifications.
4.3.3 The hands...may not grip outside the 81cm mark, with the index fingers covering the 81 cm ring.
Does this mean you can use an index on the rings grip, but no wider. Or, does it mean that no part of your hand can be outside of the rings?
Also, if you have done a USPA meet, how strict are they with the belly benching rule? I use a pretty big arch and touch fairly low. It is not super low, but maybe enough to be questionable.
Thanks for your help
