About those new IPF bench press rules… | 50% Facts

Did anyone think that in 2022 that someone would need to coin the term “bench depth?” The International Powerlifting Federation has imposed new performance rules on the competition bench press. Are they really that big a deal? Will that many people be affected? How hard are they going to be to enforce? And finally, which critics will they actually appease?

Avi Lieu, a USAPL pro powerlifter, joins us for this discussion. You can find Avi on Instagram @avi.lieu and Tiktok @avi.lieu
