The EPF has recognized a lot of rules and regulations that just don't make sense. Part of the reason is because when
lifting equipment changes and training methods improve, no one updated the rules to accommodate safety and
intelligence. The EPF has taken a close look at these rules and without jeopardise the safety of the lifter, we've
eliminated the few that just don't make sense for the lilting styles of today .. We also felt the need to eradicate rules
that have nothing to do with aiding the lift. I assure you it has all been done for the good of the sport & the safety of the
lifter. I hope you enjoy the EPF and help us continue to be open to change.
