Important IBP Announcement


Effective: July 27, 2013

In conjunction with our "Lifter First" initiative, we are happy to announce a new addition to the types of competition offered by the IBP. 
Effective immediately we will offer a Pure Raw division. This is our answer for lifters who prefer a more classic approach to weightlifting. The Pure Raw division will be contested with absolutely no supportive gear. (No supportive shirts or suits, No wraps, No belt allowed.) Many of you have asked for a division like this so here it is! 
Pure Raw competition is defined as lifting with absolutely no supportive wear.
Apparel items are limited to:
  • A Non-Supportive one piece suit.
  • Non-Supportive Shirt.
  • Shoes and socks.
  • Headwear
  • Non supportive briefs / underwear.
  • Bra / Sports bra (women)
-Lifters of any age group may enter Pure Raw competition.
-State and National Records will be kept for all lifts done in Pure Raw competition.
The current Raw and Equipped divisions will remain unchanged and available to all lifters as usual.
