Bench Press Raw Competitor guideline for 1st Bench Shirt
I´ve been involved in weightlifting for almost all my life.
I´ve competed in Powerlifting a while ago (more than 12 year ago), and once again the little bug inside of me is bothering to get into the nationals of Bench Press next december, at seniors (+41 yrs) category.
I´ve attended a couple of tournaments, and EVERYBODY is using bench shirts.
Believe it or not, I haven´t even tried one in my 26 years of weightlifting.
I´ve been training WSB for the last couple of months and my 1RM is 365 Lbs (again let me point out, RAW).
To be honest, I am pretty sure out of what I´ve seen, that in my country (Uruguay, a very small country in South America between Brazil & Argentina) I can get a pretty decent top #3 to 5th position in the Senior +41 years, but to be honest, if I compete I want to win.
Besides that, i want to get OVER 440 Lbs (and be the 20th guy in the country to get that).
So, it´s time to get a shirt.
So, I´ve been doing some research but to be honest, I am not sure if I would go for an entry level shirt (like an Inzer Rage or Rage X) or a more expirienced Katana shirt. What fabric? polyester or denim?
As you might see, I am quite lost here.
Thanks for your opinions. All the best!
