    Thanks [MENTION=5]flow[/MENTION]

    Now for the semantics benni used figure 8 straps Eddie used more conventional straight straps that allowed him to drop the bar.

    Nonetheless great lifting by both guys

    Benni also had hand surgery not long ago, so maybe an exception was made.

    Figure 8s. As far as I know they generally aren't allowed. Everyone else used a tailed strap.

    Figure 8s aren't allowed in most comps I've seen. Even local ones in Aus.

    You wouldn't believe the doses I've heard. From reliable sources too.
