    Are there any specifics on how a bench shirt must be worn for an APF meet? I am wondering if the front of the shoulder and the crease of the armpit must be covered by the shirt.

    It depends on the judges to be honest with you.

    The rule book says the armpit must me covered but a lot of guys at my gym will either set the singlet straps so they cover them or have a seamstress make little flaps to sew on the shirt to cover them.

    I've seen some judges call guys for having 1/4" of the armpit crease showing and others not call guys for having 2-3" showing.

    If you're worried about it and like to jack the collar way down low I suggest sewing some flaps on the shirt.


    Did 3 posts answer your question?

    you considering doing any IPA meets this spring? I kind of am leaning towards that since Yard's crew usually does em and I'd be able to go with them since I'll start training there post new year. I was supposed to check out the Nats last month in York but my fucking engine wouldn't start that sunday morning :(

    I like traveling too but not with the added stress of a meet.
