- You must comply with standard powerlifting rules and regulations for executing lifts, with the exception of commands.
- You may dress in gym clothes; be aware of clothing bunching and making the lifts hard to judge. You may wear a singlet to assist judges in rating your lift.
- You may wear a belt, lifters (heeled shoes), knee sleeves, wrist wraps, and any other items approved for raw competitions.
- You may NOT use elbow sleeves (except during squats), knee wraps, supportive underwear/suits, supportive shirts, a slingshot, straps, or gloves.

- Prop the camera up at about knee or bench height (approximately 16-18" off the floor).
- Camera must show the entire barbell. If the lifter or the weights are blocking the barbell, the lift will not count.
For the squat, if the lifter is facing "12" position on a clock face, the camera should be at either the "4," "5," "7," or "8" positions.

- Each plate on one side of the bar must be clearly shown after the lift is executed by walking toward the barbell and separating the weights.

- All clothing must remain on, with the exception of equipment and shoes (you may take off your knee sleeves, belt, etc.).
- Show that you tared the scale, step on the scale, and have someone zoom in on the number so that it is clearly visible.
- If you are recording yourself, you may prop your camera up, weight yourself (your whole body must be visible in the video), and then grab your camera and turn in around to show your weight.
- If you are over your registered weight class, we will bump you up into the next class, but you won't lose your registration.
- Upload your video to youtube, instagram, or some other 3rd party platform and submit it in our Powerlifting Women's Facebook group under our event thread once it is posted.
